We don't have a ship yet.

I joined here. I'm writing here. I'm helping write here. I don't know where this is going, just that it's here.

I'm here too now.

But where's the ship?

Local Elections Leaders Update

While we congratulate our Finnish friends of Piraattipuolue on successfully getting not one but two Pirates elected in the municipal elections, one in Helsinki and one in Jyväskylä we remain hopeful that our local communities here will vote for the new, open and trust-restoring politics that Pirates can offer.

In the last election cycle we were heavily focused on the disastrous IP Act and DE Bill that the Conservatives were pushing into law, helped by Labour. We saw Pirates campaign nationally to bring awareness to this injustice and publish information on how to protect ourselves from these invasive and disproportionate new powers.

Pirates Hoist the colours high in Birmingham

Birmingham spent £188.8 million to promote open access to knowledge with the Library of Birmingham so the city was a fitting setting for those trying to retain and regain these rights that we are quickly losing. Sadly our libraries are now closing and copyright is gaining a tighter strangle-hold on our culture but Pirates know it doesn’t have to be like that.

Tomorrow The Netherlands will decide if they are ready to embrace the radical reforms Pirates can offer while us in the UK wish we had a system that could give us the same proportional opportunity.

My humble advice to the Dutch is simple. If we in the UK had a proportional system such as yours, we would not waste this opportunity voting for the same old thing, we wouldn’t vote for the familiar face or weigh up who has the best propaganda. For us it would be simple. There is one clear decision if you value free speech above all else, if you want everyone to have the same, equal and open access to knowledge and if you want a government that respects your right to privacy, then you’ll come to the same conclusion that so many around the world are coming to… it is time to #VotePirate.
