Bez has announced that he will stand as a local MP for the Salford and Eccles constituency. Just take that in for a second. Give it another. Okay cool.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Bez told reporters last week: “I’ve been saying we need a revolution and there’s no good shouting about it when you’re not actually doing anything. If you want to do something about things you’ve got to get into the corridors of power and take them on. If you’re voting for me, you’re voting as a protest about what’s happening in the world at the moment”.
““I’m going to create a new world order and get rid of [bankers] and start again with a new, fairer system without evil being the main policy. [Another] one of my policies would be a permacultural society where we’ll end illness and get everybody back to an alkaline state”.
Yesterday, Bez joined anti-fracking protesters at a camp at Barton Moss, where they are attempting to slow the progress of IGas lorries entering the site. On this, Bez said: “I’ve always supported [the anti-fracking campaign] quietly but I’m going along because people have put a lot of time and effort into protesting against an unsafe technology. I believe in free energy and there’s alternative energy sources out there but the bankers and the people in charge don’t want to use them”.
