Still fuming following the Jacobite uprising, Isle of Wight residents are expected to return George Fox to his traditional parliamentary seat for the 52nd consecutive general election.
Mr Fox has been representing the island in parliament since 1715 despite having died shortly after Christmas in 1762.
The islanders claim that they have never had a complaint about his behaviour, at least in living memory, and are proud to boast that his expenses claims in 2009 amounted to little more than £240 for such essentials as a new morning suit and a couple of fresh bottles of formaldehyde.
Maude Fettle, local party member and part time nurse at the Ryde Typhus Clinic, said that despite the opposition parties threatening change, it was good to know that the island's 147 registered voters had the good sense to keep things as they should be.
However central party officials are demanding an investigation into suspected voting irregularities. The Labour and Conservative party candidates haven't been seen on the island since the May day burning of the wicker man on Shanklin beach.
