New IT Infrastructure

With the publication of this blog post, I can gladly announce the transfer of the main website from our previous antiquated infrastructure to our new systems. Hopefully, you should be noticing several speed increases when interacting with the site, and I hope that as we continue to tweak and optimize the new system that further seconds can be shaved off of the website loading time, resulting in a far more user-friendly experience. This new infrastructure looks to save the party over one thousand pounds a year and this means we will be able to continue putting more money into campaigning in order to make a difference in our political sphere.

Equal under the Law

One of the seven guiding principles on which the policies and actions of the Pirate Party are based states… All are equal under the law. We all have a say in the structure and process of governance and the right to know what is done on our behalf.

Personally, and as Nominations Officer for the party, this is the core principle that means most to me. Equality and access to justice are fundamental rights, and that is enshrined in Article 7 of the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights. But sad to say we do not live in an equal society in this country. Every day people are discriminated against on grounds of sex, race, sexual identity, and political or religious beliefs. While such behaviour might be illegal, it is still widely practiced and is ingrained in some organisations. What is more, the Press actively encourages sexist, homophobic, and religious intolerance with provocative headlines, photos, and articles.

The Pirate Party stands for justice and equality. We believe that a person's beliefs, preferences, and physical attributes should have no bearing on how they are treated or what opportunities they have access to.
