FALSE rumours have circulated claiming musician Nick Cave will run for Parliament.

A post appeared on Facebook yesterday claiming the Brighton-based singer will be the Lib Dem candidate for Hove.

One resident said Mr Cave had his vote, adding: “Nick Cave for benevolent dictator.”

But the party’s actual candidate, Beatrice Bass, tweeted: “Your Lib Dem candidate in Hove and Portslade is a musician and likes to wear black, but no it’s not Nick Cave.”
