Pirate Party leader Loz Kaye believes Ed Miliband’s Labour campaign has lacked a ‘compelling alternative’ as momentum appears to favour the Conservatives this morning.
The BBC’s exit poll suggested the Tories would fall just short of a majority, and as the votes trickle in, it appears David Cameron is in a strong position to remain as Prime Minister.
Kaye, who is running as candidate in Manchester Central, says Labour’s policies have failed to invigorate voters into making a change.
He said: “The exit poll has come as a big surprise. That does not tally with the polling we’ve been hearing up to this point.
“It’s another of those points where the Labour Party really didn’t have a compelling alternative.
