First Positive Score In Manifesto Scorecard Announced By MAG

In a week with further General Election manifestos published, MAG has announced the first party to achieve a positive score.  Reform UK’s document “Our Contract With You” achieves a score of +1.2

positive score

Last week MAG published scorecards for the General Election manifestos of the Conservative, Labour, Lib Dem and Green parties.  In MAG’s analysis none of those manifestos achieved a positive score for alignment with the Move on Motorcycling manifesto. 

With the publication of the Reform UK document – billed by the party as a contract, not a manifesto – MAG can now point to a positive outcome.  The Reform UK document achieves a score of +1.2, thanks mainly to the party’s position on future sales of internal combustion vehicles.

MAG has also published scorecards for the Plaid Cymru, Scottish National Party and Sinn Féin who have all published manifestos since Friday of last week.  These three parties all achieved a score of zero given that all three are silent on the specific issues raised in Move on Motorcycling.

MAG’s Director of Campaigns & Political Engagement, Colin Brown, said:

“The scoring system we are using only measures the alignment of the party manifestos with the asks MAG has made in the Move on Motorcycling manifesto.  It is perhaps understandable that parties for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are silent on devolved issues, but there are plenty of other areas that they could cover to show that they are serious about delivering for motorcyclists.  We are delighted to see that there is one party with a net positive offering from a motorcycling perspective, but I should reiterate that MAG are apolitical.  We are simply providing information to help riders make their voting choice on 4th July.  Manifestos do not necessarily give a comprehensive list of all policies of any given party, so we advise riders to continue asking candidates for more detail from all the parties”
