Standing five Pirates in Luxembourg's 2017 communal elections, Pirate Partei gained 33,566 (1.3%) votes under their Proportional Representation system, which entitles them to three representatives.

David A Elston, Pirate Party UK Acting Leader said:

"Congratulations to the Luxembourg Pirates who gained three seats in the communal elections recently.

As our member numbers have grown over the last week or so the party has reached the point where we can provide the benefits of membership we promised. Previously policy discussion was publicly available to comment on but now detailed policy discussion will be restricted to the members of the party. Members can now take their role in help shape the party as we go forward.

Non-members aren't going to be left out of the loop, you're the people we're trying to convince to vote for us! Regular summaries etc will become public as policy is finalised.

Luckily it isn't hard to become a Pirate Party UK member so you can easily join in on the debate.

Membership Update

When the PPUK officers had their last conference call, less than a week ago, we set ourselves a simple target.  The capability to enrol members had just been put in place.  The website was live and we hoped to convert the 200 regular users of the forum into full members within a fortnight.  The plan was to only engage the media after we had a little money, a few members to boast of, and the chance to test our systems and processes and fix the remaining bugs.  Well, forget that plan!  The media has been hot for the story from moment the Telegraph reported that the Pirate Party UK had officially registered.  The party is only 2 weeks old, but the response has been extraordinary.

Our Core Beliefs

Editor's picture

Just a quick message for all our new members, whilst we are very grateful for all the suggestions about different policies that we should adopt, the Pirate Party U.K. intends to remain on topic and concentrate on our three core beliefs;

1. The reform of Copyright and Patent Laws

2. The protection of our Right to Privacy

3. The protection of our Right to Freedom of Speech

The News is Out

The news is out. much sooner than we had planned, the mainstream media swooped down on our humble PPUK website, latched on to the announcement that we have officially launched the party, and spread it far and wide. I guess you could call it sharing the good news. We're all for sharing, though it means Andrew now has an impossible task as leader, trying to handle all the interview requests that have flooded in.
