He served as Conservative and United Kingdom Independence Party Peer in the House of Lords before defecting to the British National Party. He was Leader of the Opposition in the House of Commons and Leader of the British National Party, then UK Independence Party until he became Deputy Prime Minister under a coalition government with the Conservative Party, under Alexandra Roberts. He also serves as Home Secretary.. He served as Foreign Secretary in the Cavendish & Wellesley administrations, before serving as Acting Chancellor of the Exchequer between the time of Diana Ponsonby's resignation and Winston Cavendish's resignation.

Early Life Edit

Arthur was born in Westhampnett, West Sussex where he grew up. He is the son of Charlotte Murphy, 8th Duchess of Lennox and Charles Lennox, 8th Duke of Richmond. He was born at 2:05AM.

He went to a private school in Sussex, before attending Oxford University where he went on to study economics and politics before succeeding his father in his Dukedom.

Dukedom Edit

Gordon-Lennox succeeded his father as Duke of Richmond when his father died on the 23rd October 2005. He is the 9th person to hold the title and there are currently no heirs to the Dukedom noted. He sat in the House of Lords as a Conservative Peer before defecting to the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) and then to the British National Party in the House of Commons.

Leader of the Opposition Edit

The Duke became Leader of the Opposition on the 10th of April 2017 following his election as Leader and Chairman of the British National Party. He formed an opposition right-wing coalition with the Conservative Party to make the British Unionist Coalition. Robert Campbell, 6th Duke of Argyll subsequently became Deputy Leader of the Coalition and Deputy Leader of the Opposition. Robert Argyll resigned a week later, and Alexandra Roberts became Deputy Leader of the Opposition and Leader of the Conservative Party. This resulted in major resignations across the British National Party, causing the Leader, Arthur, to defect to the UK Independence Party and he was then elected leader. Just before this, Shadow Home Secretary, Fern Newton presented a motion of no confidence to the House of Commons, which they managed to get a majority of votes for. This allowed a General Election to be called after the dissolution of Parliament.

In Government Edit

Arthur was third place in the General Election, and he then went on to form a coalition Government with the Conservative Party, where he then became Deputy Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Home Secretary under Prime Minister Alexandra Roberts. He then appointed Fern Newton Secretary of State for Health upon being given the option to appoint several Cabinet Ministers.
