ICYMI: Meet the pub landlord running in the UK election... for love (VIDEO)

ICYMI: Meet the pub landlord running in the UK election... for love (VIDEO)
The Conservatives, Labour and a few others get all the headline election coverage, but there are many independents running for parliament in the UK election, and at least one is doing it for love.

One of the quirks of the British election system is that anyone able to stump up £500 and get 10 signatures can run to become an MP.
 
ICYMI went to meet Steve Cotten, the self-titled worst pub landlord in the UK, who is fighting to become the parliamentary representative for North Devon.

He may not have the most compelling vision for the future of the country, but he's running for the best reason of all... to impress a woman.
