Lembit's Leicester lookalike

The Powys County Times reports the existence of "the only official Lembit Opik lookalike in the UK".

His name is Neil May and he lives in Leicester.

The newspaper goes on:
The only problem is Neil's never had a booking, the demand for a Lembit lookalike just doesn't seem to be there – yet.

"To be honest, this is the first phone call I have ever had," he told the County Times.

He could get together with the other Chekey girl.

Funny you should mention that. I had a student swear blind he'd seen Lembit on several separate occasions cycling round Cambridge. I thought this was interesting but was a little dismayed he'd not communicated his presence to the local faithful, so I phoned his office only to find it's apparently a doppelganger.

So: One in Wales/Westminster, one in Leicestershire and one in Cambridgeshire. Good to have spares I suppose.
