#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.
