#165 - Alex Mays on The Breakthrough Party and Breaking The Two Party System
/

The Breakthrough Party launched in January 2021. It was founded by Alex Mays. He grew up in Brighton but now lives in Manchester. Mays was previously a chef, but in 2015 he retrained as a journalist. He now works as head of creative at a social media company. It was his retraining which got him into politics; coinciding with the Labour leadership contest where Jeremy Corbyn swept to victory.

Breakthrough has three, very clear points as its “mission“. The party says it will:

- Unite and empower our communities to take on the establishment & challenge the political status quo.

- Make local and national politics more representative.

- Fight for an equal, fair, and just society.
