Protest votes and unlikely candidates in office

Its been a bit of topsy-turvy year; Britain voted to leave the EU and an apparently crazy outsider, Donald Trump now occupies the White House.

Both events have been put down to the protest vote. It just struck me that there is a proper protest vote party in Britain, one that has incidentally advocated leaving the EU for decades: The Official Monster Raving Loony Party, lead by 'Screaming' Lord Sutch.

They should have picked up the protest vote but did not, which is a pity. They sound a bit saner than what we seem to have ended up with, see their manicfesto and policy proposals.
