I'm writing this message at around twenty minutes past twelve on Friday morning, the 20th day of January in the year of 2017, so I sincerely apologise if I ramble a little bit...
Today marks the day of Donald Trump's Inauguration as the US President, Brexit continues to be talked about, and the Pirate Party UK NEC Election 2017 Nominations for Secretary and Deputy Leader have closed, and voting has commenced. At least something positive will come about from today.
For those that don't know, the National Executive Committee is an important part of the political blogosphere, and most (if not all) political parties have an NEC at the helm. Constitutionally for PPUK, the NEC is the executive body of the Pirate Party UK, comprised of the elected officers and other members selected to join the committee. Essentially this means that the NEC is important.
I nominated myself for the position of Deputy Leader as I relish a challenge, and I want to get a lot more involved in Party politics than I ever before imagined I would. I've previously held the roles of Press Officer, and Nominations Officer, and I have stories to tell of both.
