Civil liberties, bloody liberties and tv licensing!

Dear all,

            I recently had quite an upsetting experience with tv licencing [long story]. They got in touch pretty quickly once we'd 'cancelled' online, but you can't cancel easily as their website doesn't allow it. But we did get a couple of Emails and a couple of phone calls that were 'strong' on subliminal threats. The final call ended in me losing my rag with a remote 'irritant' at their hq. They are the 'Stasi' reborn, so beware all of you using bbc iPlayer etc. Anyone else out there suffered like this at all..?

Bluebird

Back again with possible London Docklands branch {?}

Avast ye,

             Hello all. I'm Laurence [Bluebird] and back at the helm after a couple of roller coaster years changing many jobs, a GE [2015] and new directions in life! Please feel free to get in touch if you fancy a chat. My new job domain is in London Docklands, an area sitting right in the middle of the PPUK London logo, and an alternative venue for people in E / SE London to meet up. There's a nice roomy pub with quiet sit down tables at West India Quay should I get any interest! I'm not into treading on toes, so this isn't about upsetting PP London Branch, but just an added extra!

2018: Looking Ahead

Hey there! 

My name is Jason 'Termy' Winstanley. I am 25 years old, and I have been a member of the Pirate Party in the UK for several years, I don't actually recall I first joined. And long story short, I want to lead the National Executive Committee branch of the party over the next two-year cycle, and beyond. Basically, I feel great about where the party stands right now, and I can see a bright future if we harness the talent and skills that we house internally. We have many volunteers, members, people that do amazing things, and I want to foster the talent that we have and push it together in the right direction.

There are a few things I would like to see happen under my leadership, taking the form of my annual goals for 2018:

Vote ZAP

I have been on the NEC since late 2016, during my time I have helped transform our IT team and reduce costs from nearly £300 a month to just shy of £160. The money saved is now being used to promote and support the party and its aims. You can see my current responsibilities here:

What I have done in 2016/2017 Election Period

·         Organised the Birmingham meetup to increase engagement

·         Assisted in the GE preparation and supported a candidate at his count

·         Worked within the IT team to drive transformation

·         Lots of back office admin stuff that no one sees but is very important to the central running of the party.

 

What I Plan to do in 2017/2018
 

A new politics needs a new parliament

"Remember, remember the fifth of November,
Gunpowder treason and plot.
We see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!

Guy Fawkes, guy, t’was his intent
To blow up king and parliament.
Three score barrels were laid below
To prove old England’s overthrow.

By god’s mercy he was catch’d
With a darkened lantern and burning match.
So, holler boys, holler boys, Let the bells ring.
Holler boys, holler boys, God save the king.

And what shall we do with him?
Burn him!"
