Alex Dyson Is Deadset Running For Parliament In The Upcoming Federal Election

Now we feel like we’ve truly seen it all. Everyone’s fave rat dog Alex Dyson has announced that his silly self will be running for government this upcoming federal election.

According to The Weekly Times, via, Dyson was included as a last minute inclusion for the seat of Wannon in rural Victoria, running as an independent.

He didn’t really give much away about his campaign, but according to, he is running as to so those who live in that electorate can have an alternative to the major parties.

“I think people are a bit disillusioned,” he said. “It’s good to be a voice for all people.”

We’re not sure how bright his chances are, considering the seat of Wannon has been held by the Liberals for 64 straight years but we love that he’s giving it a red hot crack.

The former Triple J breakfast host has already had a big year venturing into other worlds, having started a podcast with fellow ex-triple j host Kyran Wheatley as well as a co-owning a Melbourne bar with him as well.
