|This party gives a voice to those who feel disillusioned or disenfranchised by the choice of political parties or their candidates. By placing our candidates for election, voters will be able to say that none of the other candidates are suitable choices. We have no manifesto or political view, but offer the electorate freedom of expression, and an end to 'voter apathy'.

We are urging people to write to the Chairman of the Electoral Commission to ask him to carry out trials for a "none of the above" box on ballot papers. The Commission's own research has shown that it would encourage up to 33% of non-voters to use their vote. We feel it is important that our democracy allows people to positively abstain where they feel there is not a wide enough choice of candidates or those on the ballot paper all appear to be unsuitable.
