Loz Kaye - Party Leader
It's certainly never a dull moment as PP-UK Leader. Since my last update I have been busy advocating for our politics, including a lecture at the London School of Economics, meetings at the House of Commons, attending events about open data and taking part at the international "Rethinking the Internet" conference in Venice.
Equally, I have been working on the ground for residents in Manchester- whether it's helping to run a community consultation on possible new uses for an derelict building in Bradford ward where I stood last year, or pressing for regeneration in the East of the city. I also had an amazing visit to community projects in the Liverpool district of Toxteth. Great to see real transformation, it doesn't have to be all doom and gloom. I like this combination of the visionary and the practical, that's what politics is about for me.

We've had quite a few new members join the party since my last update. So welcome all, and thanks to all of you who continue to be part of this party and those of you who have volunteered to help. We've been through quite a big media focus recently and it's time to expand our work on the ground to cope with the interest in Pirate politics. So that means a new and bigger team. We have a new board and it's time to expand the team further, we'll need new people to help with press, new candidates, new treasury team, new people to support my work as Leader, help with ongoing policy, and new members for the board.
Right now, we need someone to step in as leading the Press Team while the excellent Harry Percival takes a step back for a bit to write a book... Take a look at the job spec here if you are at all interested in getting our message out. The media side of our work is never dull, I can promise you that!
