My response to the propsed pre-planning consultation that aims to change the three parcels of land, green belt and public green space to housing:

 

A busy month (plus a few days)

Whew that month sure went fast. We're due a little sit down and catch up, so here we go...

For those of you that missed it (what have you been doing?!), our Icelandic counterparts won 10 seats, up from three in the Icelandic Parliament. This is a huge success, and we issued a press release about it here. I was lucky enough to be interviewed by CNBC and featured briefly in this video. I was also interviewed by Ars Technica about the Pirate Party UK.

Have your say on the make-up of future Parliamentary seats...

As you may be aware there are currently plans for a new set of Parliamentary Constituencies to be put in place in time for the next General Election in 2020. As part of our commitment to open and transparent democracy we believe in responding to consultations such as this where we can do.

Seeing is believing

Who has the real power in this country ? Who really controls where you work , how much you earn , how much your bills are , where you can afford to live and buy a house ? If you think it's the politicians or the Prime Minister or even your local council you'd be wrong . The real ruling power in the UK is The Bank Of England , they control how much money you earn and spend everyday of your life . Do you really know why you have to pay tax and national insurance ? You pay tax to cover the UK's national debt which as I write this is at close to 1.7 trillion pounds . Why do we owe this and who do we owe it to , how did we get ourselves in so much debt ?

The Barry Eye

Pirate Party Councillor criticises Merlin Entertainments Group for being a "kill joy"


The owners of Barry Island's giant ferris wheel have been told they can no longer refer to the attraction as the "Barry Eye", despite never having officially done so, because the Merlin group own "The Eye" and "London Eye" trademarks.[1]


David A Elston, Pirate Party Spokesperson & Councillor in St Athan said:


"It is ludicrous that Merlin or anyone else for that matter can try to claim sole rights to the word "Eye" this way.


"I hope the Merlin Group will reconsider this heavy handed approach to the Danter family and cease such intimidating actions over a rather stretched assumption that anything branded "Eye" will inevitably link back to them.


"Actions like this will be putting a lot of the locals off attractions Merlin provides. They should really think about what exactly they are trying to achieve with this because so far all it is causing is disappointment and heavy sighing at the mention of their name in our community.
