Join the Campaign….

Like a lot of people we're fed up with the mainstream parties and how a tired elite dominate this city. It's a question of time for change or more of the same. Of course change doesn't happen by itself. We're moving forward in Manchester, but we'll need help to keep it up and get the message out. We're out leafleting for the Ancoats and Clayton by-election the weekends of 16th/17th November, 23rd/24th November, and 30th November/1st December. Do join in - details are in the events on the side...

Pirate Vote Share Up in Ancoats and Clayton

October 10th's by-election in the Ancoats and Clayton ward saw the Pirate Party's share of the vote increase in the area. People are responding to our alternative vision for Manchester. Once again we beat the LibDems who seem to have given up on North and East Manchester. We were also particularly pleased to beat the BNP - after we had been highlighting how they and UKIP seek to split our communities apart. Worryingly, turnout tumbled to just 13%. We are getting close to the point where j...

Candidates Announced in Ancoats & Clayton By-election

The candidates for the Ancoats & Clayton by-election on the 10th October 2013 have now been announced,and Loz Kaye will be standing for the Pirate Party. Manchester Labour have made no secret that they want full control over the council. That's bad for our community, bad for our democracy. It would leave no-one to ask difficult questions, no-one to challenge how our council tax is used. Make sure you don't lose your voice. It's easy to miss out, for example it you've moved recently an...

Manchester – The Digital Debate


Manchester Council Hits The Wrong Note

  Council budgets are under pressure right now and so much of our city is in need of regeneration. This is why many have been shocked at the Labour council's decision to blow a whopping £425,000 putting on an MTV concert featuring Alicia Keys. Not content with bank bailouts, we are now getting music industry bailouts as well. This seems all too typical of a town hall that seems obsessed with style over substance. The council has attempted to justify the event by claiming it repres...
