Rebel Bez: Pol­i­tics is just like danc­ing!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

HAPPY Mon­days dancer Mark ‘Bez’ Berry ad­mits that his anti-frack­ing Re­al­ity Party is in­spired by his wild mu­sic ca­reer.

The 50-year-old, born in Bolton, Gtr Manch­ester, said that both his pol­i­tics and mu­sic were ex­pres­sions of “re­bel­lion”.

He added: “There’s no dif­fer­ence be­tween the Bez you see on and off stage.

“It’s just a dif­fer­ent kind of ex­pres­sion.

“I’m still re­belling against the sys­tem, but now I’m re­belling through pol­i­tics in­stead of danc­ing.”

Last year, Bez – who won Celebrity Big Brother back in 2005 – an­nounced he would stand as a can­di­date for the Sal­ford and Ec­cles con­stituency in Manch­ester.

He is the founder and leader of the Re­al­ity Party, and is run­ning on a plat­form of “free en­ergy, free food and free any­thing”.
