Citizens for Undead Rights and Equality
Citizens for Undead Rights and Equality (CURE) is a minor British political party. It was founded due to alienation from mainstream parties, with the aim of mocking politicians and those who voted for them.
They fielded four candidates in the 2010 United Kingdom general election, in the constituencies of Hitchin and Harpenden, Twickenham, Doncaster Central and Brighton Pavilion. They polled 317 votes among them, their best result being in Hitchin and Harpenden where they received 108 votes, 0.2% of the total votes in that constituency.
Their policies include increasing the statutory retirement age to beyond death, finding a cure for Zombie bites and granting the undead the same rights as the living.
Harry Cole, leader of the party stated his party was named as such because "with the coalition treating the electorate as zombies, we thought we’d illustrate the strength of feeling by bringing our cause direct to Parliament".
The CURE party has had support from Capcom, the makers of video game Dead Rising 2 since close to its inception. Capcom have since used the CURE name, party leader name, and concept as part of Dead Rising 2's lore.
The official domain for CURE has since been transferred to new owners.
