The Reality Party was a political party in the United Kingdom that was founded in 2014, by Mark "Bez" Berry and stood three candidates in the 2015 UK general election. The party manifesto was a centre-left anti-austerity programme which includes policies against privatisation, tuition fees and tax avoidance and in favour of renationalisation, progressive taxation, rent controls, socially-managed housing and participatory democracy.
In January 2015, the Reality Party was deregistered by the Electoral Commission for having a name that was too similar to that of the Realists' Party. Its founder had been given several written warnings that a name change was required, and was removed from the register in January when it had failed to comply. On 12 February 2015 the party re-registered as "We Are The Reality Party". They were also permitted to use the description "The Reality Party It's Your Reality" on ballot papers.
- Mark "Bez" Berry stood for Salford and Eccles and gained 703 votes, higher than fellow anti-austerity party Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition.
- Nigel Askew stood for South Thanet where Nigel Farage (leader of UKIP) was also standing, and gained 126 votes. He referred to his campaign as "The Battle of the Nigels" and also referred to himself as "the real pub landlord" highlighting another adversary, Al Murray. Both Farage and Murray beat him in the election, but finished behind Conservative candidate Craig Mackinlay.
- Mags McNally was the candidate for Worsley and Eccles South, gaining 200 votes.
