Enthusiastic support for the party has, up to now, sometimes blinded us to the fundamental truth: there was no party. The Pirate Party UK existed only as an idea. But now it is real, and here to stay for as long as it is needed. At the end of last month, the Electoral Commission confirmed the registration. You can see the PPUK entry on the official register.
The paperwork is done. The website has been developed (thanks to a tremendous job from Gavin and co). We have put the legal and banking necessities in place. Now the party needs you. Yes, I know you were there for the party all along, but now you really can join this real political party. We are not talking about getting a password to use a website, or joining a group on Facebook, but becoming a member of a real political party that can field real election candidates. Thanks to those of you who have joined already, without a moment's hesitation. Everyone else, follow the link and become a member - you will find it under 'the party' at the top of the screen. You do not want to miss out on a lifetime of bragging that you were a member from the very beginning. We are about to set sail and it is time to climb aboard. It is going to be one heck of a journey.
