Nightclub owner and ‘tantric master’ to stand as Tory candidate at next election
UPDATED: 16:07, 1 October 2009
A nightclub owner who calls himself a ‘tantric master’ has been selected to contest a seat for the Conservatives at the next election. Andrew Charalambous, 38, who also goes by the alias ‘Dr Earth’, claims ‘all you have to do is dance to save the world’ and runs nights at clubs with a hi-tech floor which generates electricity from the movement of dancers. He has been selected for the Edmonton seat in London, currently held by Labour. Jade Jagger, club owner Andrew Charalambous Tory candidate Andrew Charalambous also goes by the name Dr Earth, pictured with Jade Jagger at the launch of Club4Climate in London Mr Charalambous is also a fruitarian and works as barrister and volunteer police officer. He holds a PhD in the parallels between Plato’s utopia and Spartan society. A description of Dr Earth on his website says: ‘He has completed one of the profoundest spiritual journeys in history. ‘We know of no other living person who has travelled to so many countries on a spiritual quest and been taught by so many great spiritual masters from such a diverse plethora of spiritual systems. ‘He is a tantric master initiated in India. He has dated some of the most beautiful women in the world. ‘Andrew describes himself as the first male feminist. He says “women are definitely the superior sex. Society needs less playboys and more men with family values. I am nothing compared to my brothers who are decent family men with children.”‘ Mr Charalambous said: ‘I am the man of all seasons. The person people in semi-detached houses will vote for, the person people in high-rise council estates will vote for. We need politicians people can relate to.’ The eco-warrior has also installed waterless urinals, a wind turbine and solar panels at his club4climate change in King’s Cross nightclub Surya, and claims to be London’s most ethical landlord, owning more than 1,000 properties in the capital. The Edmonton seat is held by Andy Love for Labour and he will defend a majority of 8,000 at the next election. Mr Charalambous, who is of Greek descent, was selected for the seat this week but the choice has surprised some members of the party. One Tory parliamentary source said: ‘It’s nuts. It’s one thing to stand by the “vote blue, go green” theory, but to say we can solve climate change by dance? The scary thing is he could win the seat. It’s a car crash waiting to happen.’ Mr Charalambous stood for the safe Labour seat of Tottenham in 1992 but lost out to Bernie Grant.
Subsequent to this 2009 article aboveNigel Farage made much of having recruited this dubious character and with much fanfare presented him and rapidly elevated him above the many hard working long term Ukip members to become a party spokesman with a responsible role in Nigel Farage’s party structure.
Perhaps we should not be surprised to find he was one of Nigel Farage’s hand picked ‘Dregs and Rejects’!

A senior Ukip spokesman has been exposed as claiming to hold a “fake” degree and a professorship at an unaccredited academic institution.
Andrew Charalambous, the party’s housing and environment spokesman, is listed on a Facebook page as holding a “PhD in the parallels between Plato’s Utopia and Spartan Society”. He was listed on his official website as being a “professor of environmental sciences”.
It is also worthy of note that he has also withdrawn his claims to be a Barrister!
How very typical of Nigel Farage’s leadership style where he hand picks individuals boosting them into elevated positions in his leadership team, only to find yet again his drinking buddies have duped him and his judgement has let him down – at which stage he denounces people he claimed as friends and of whom he extolled the virtues.
How long will it be before he denounces Douglas Carswell as an idiot as he did with his protege David Bannerman or claims that Mark Reckless is ‘impossible’ as he did with his best known protege Marta Andreasen and so the list of those Farage has not only proved his poor judgement over but also with whom he has fallen out when they failed to pay obeisance to his self perceived abilities – as Roger Helmer has just found out there is only room for one ‘Fuehrer’ in Farage’s centrally controlled absolute dictatorship, where he and he alone may make decisions ensuring that those who dare to challenge him are cut down to size either through bad publicity in a gullible and pliant media manipulated by such as Clive Page, Annabelle Fuller, Herman Kelly, Mark Croucher, Gawain Towler or some other lackey used until they get tossed on the ‘dregs & rejects’ pile!
Nigel Farage’s party is nowadays made up largely of ‘Dregs & Rejects’ from the Tory Pary at its upper echelons these days and when you realise that in the last EU parliament of his 13 MEPs he had managed to reduce his party to a mere 5 by abusing and falling out with his fellow MEPs who finally saw through his corruption and corruption of the party just as somewhere around 70 Ukip NEC members have walked away from Ukip when they discovered the true nature of Nigel Farage’s enrichment and aggrandisement structure truelly is!
