Ivor "Jest Ye Not Madam" Biggun (played by Geoffrey McGivern) was a politician who participated in the Dunny-on-the-Wold by-election in "Dish and Dishonesty", standing for the Standing at the Back Dressed Stupidly and Looking Stupid Party.

Biggun loses the seat to Baldrick, but, unlike the others, takes his defeat jovially, saying that: "if you can't laugh, what can you do?". His party's policies included: "the compulsory serving of asparagus at breakfast, free corsets for the under-fives, and the abolition of slavery", the latter of which was apparently added "for a joke".


  • The character's name is shared with the pseudonym of comedic singer-songwriter Robert "Doc" Cox most famous for his appearances on the BBC magazine series That's Life. Under the Ivor Biggun moniker he released a series of albums with adult lyrical content, the first of which spawned the 1978 hit single The Winker's Song (Misprint) which was banned by the BBC.
