We'd like to thank all of the people that have kindly donated money to our campaign funds for the General Election. At the time of putting our progress bar online yesterday, we had £300 donated. At the time of writing this blog, we have £2513.98, which is 5 candidate's deposits paid for or 3 constituency mailouts paid for.
This is fantastic progress in such a short space of time! We really do need the donations to keep on coming, though. We need a further £4,500 to fund our candidates with mailouts and deposits, and anything more than that will go towards campaign funds for each candidate.
Last night, the Digital Economy Bill was passed through the Commons and will soon become the Digital Economy Act. The Pirate Party UK strongly opposes the Bill/Act and will continue to do so when it becomes UK law. We are the only political party in the country that publicly opposes it.
If you want to make a big difference and you can't vote for our candidates, please donate whatever you can afford so that we have the best chance possible to get a Pirate Party UK MP out of next month's General Election. If you live near one of our target constituencies, why not help with our campaign, by getting involved with canvassing or publicity?You can visit our donation page to make a contribution.
