The Pirate Party UK recently passed the 500-member mark. Our 500th member is Hakim Akayour, a motorcycle enthusiast from Hertfordshire. We asked Hakim why he supports the Pirate Party, and this is what he told us.
“I love my motorbike. For me, it means freedom. I've ridden my bike all over - all around Europe and down to North Africa too. It makes me worried that there's politicians who would even think of putting chips into every bike and car and monitoring our every move. l know the government will try and brand it as a method to stop people driving on the road without road tax, but once the system is in and it's too late to stop them they can start using it for a magnitude of other things.
