About us

The Northern Independence Party was founded in October 2020 to oppose the injustice of the worsening North/South Divide. Since then our party has grown to include thousands of members, standing candidates all across the North to fight for our fair share.

Our National Executive Committee is elected by our members. Our present senior leadership are

  • Leader — Philip Proudfoot
  • Deputy-Leader — David Heaven
  • National Chair — Suzanne Clifton
  • National Treasurer — Joe Wilson

… And our Nominating Officer is Luke O’Donoughue. We currently contract James Thornbury of Cormac Consultancy for assistance with party operations.

Our members come from all walks of life: everyone who wants to make the North their home is a Northerner. We stand opposed to all forms of bigotry, including but not limited to racism, antisemitism, islamophobia, misogyny, ableism, homophobia, and transphobia.
