IMPORTANT: Nominations period extended - new NEC urgently needed

Dear Pirates,

As there were no nominations for any of the NEC posts, the nominations period has been extended indefinitely until nominations are received.

The current NEC will remain provisionally in post until the conclusion of the election, unless they choose to resign. I will be resigning as Nominating Officer on 19th December, though I will continue to run this election until a new Nominating Officer is in place.

Please, please consider putting your name forward for an NEC position. It's hard to overstate the seriousness of the current situation. Without an NEC, the party is essentially unable to carry on its day-to-day activities, which include standing for elections and advocating Pirate policies at a national level.

The forum thread for the election is here. The election itself can be found here.

Best wishes,

 - George

Dr George Walkden
Nominating Officer

Whistleblowers under pressure from update to Official Secrets Act?

Saturday, 4 February, 2017 - 10:00

Under proposals to update the Official Secrets Acts, government officials and civil service whistleblowers could face imprisonment for up to 14 years - a considerable increase on the two years currently in place.

In a comprehensive review and overhaul of the Official Secrets Acts, the Law Commission has come up with a number of proposals in a new 'Espionage Act' that is intended to meet the legislative demands of the 21st century rather than the 19th.
