Lily the Pink
Partying with the Party since 2008.
Minister for Maintaining a Rosy Outlook,
Authentically alternative, purposefully pink, encouraging a colourful collaboration of tolerance, titillation, and truthfulness. Satirical sugar-coating, sarcasm, smiling, some sighing (simultaneously with a certain amount of eye rolling). Daily doses of double-entendres prescribed to all.
Has stood for Welsh Assembly, General Election, and local By-elections.

Knigel KnappKnigel_Knapp
Media & Publicity 2007 –
Deputy Leader 2019 –
Knigel has a degree in media studies – well he watched a lot of Blue Peter when he was a kid. And he is an active self publicist (check out!) See what we mean? But please don’t believe anything he says or anything you hear about this man because Knigel is the Loony Party Minister for Blatant Lies and Big Fibs.

Mark ‘Sir NosDa’ BeechLoony Party CEO Mark Beech Esq / The Good Knight Sir NosDa
Website Technical Officer 2013-
Chief Elections Officer 2024-

The Good Knight has contested 5 Council Elections, 4 UK general Elections, 2 Welsh General Elections, and 1 Parliamentary By-elections – most of them for the Loony Party.

He announced his retirement from competitive politics after the 2019 General Election, and now gets to enjoy pointing out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

As Website Technical Officer Mark is in-charge of painting the pixels, feeding the hamsters, and making self-aggrandizing edits when nobody is watching.
