Dear Pirate Party Member,

I am writing to all members as the Nominations Officer for Pirate Party UK.

As some of you may be aware, there are local elections due to be held on Thursday 3rd May 2018. These are taking place all over the country with around 4,000 council seats up for grabs. Here are the local authorities where elections will take place.

Local elections represent a fantastic opportunity to spread awareness about the Pirate Party. Fighting...

The Treasurer is Sinking

Editor's picture

This is one of those good news/bad news stories.

The good news is that new members and money keeps pouring in.

The bad news is that you're killing your treasurer in the process. 

The party is registered!

The long-awaited news has finally arrived, the Pirate Party UK is now officially registered as a political party! This means we can raise funds, have Pirate Party Candidates at the next general election, and do all the other things that political parties do. Getting to this stage has been a long process, we've had to elect officers, raise funds, fill out forms, meet with some (very helpful) people at the Electoral Commission, and learn far more about electoral law and the special party funding rules that apply to Gibraltar than any same person would ever want to.

You can make a difference, right now.

Following they government's Digital Britain report, which outlined their plans for a £50,000 fine for file sharing and to introduce site, IP address and protocol blocking, port blocking, content-based censorship, transfer capping, bandwidth shaping and bandwidth capping for net connections for suspected file sharers without a trial or a chance to appeal, the Government's Department for Business Innovation and Skills are running a consultation on their plans.

Joining the Journey

Enthusiastic support for the party has, up to now, sometimes blinded us to the fundamental truth: there was no party. The Pirate Party UK existed only as an idea. But now it is real, and here to stay for as long as it is needed. At the end of last month, the Electoral Commission confirmed the registration. You can see the PPUK entry on the official register.

There's a general election in Germany in September, and the German Pirate Party, Piratenpartei, looks set for success. According to Spiegel, the conditions are just right for them.
