Loz Kaye joined the Pirate Party as he felt, like many people, let down by mainstream politics and politicians.
He took over leadership in 2010 from Andy Robinson. Since then he has become a sought after expert on civil liberties, open society and the power of technology to transform people’s lives. He has appeared on BBC, CNN, Russia Today and has written for the Guardian. He speaks regularly on Pirate Party politics – from the Future Everything Conference in Manchester to events in Brussels and Dublin.
Loz has worked as a teacher, higher education lecturer and musician. In education he has worked with a wide variety of students, from GCSE and University to care homes and learning disabled groups. He runs his own business creating and recording music for national and international markets. His music has been performed widely, including at the Manchester Royal Exchange and Green Room.
”I am passionate about Manchester. But it is time that everyone got to share in opportunities this city has to offer. Too many of the people of Manchester Central have been left behind, and it is time for a strong, independent voice to represent them”.
He has stood in the Manchester Central by-election beating Respect and TUSC amongst others, and in the Bradford Ward council election in 2012 beating the Liberal Democrats.
