Shout Out UK interviews Loz Kaye.

How did you feel when you were made leader of the Pirate party UK? Is it hard to lead a UK fringe party?

I’m happy that the members have backed me as Leader – after all it’s their party not mine. And to be honest when I was voted in for the first time in 2010 it was all still a bit of a surprise. I have always been interested in politics, but had the idea that it was something that other people did. You know, the ones in think tanks and with politics degrees. But after all, politics is too important to be left to politicians.

I think this is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done, I’d say to anyone who has ever moaned about politicians, get in there and see what you can do.
