A speech I was going to use at a cancelled hustings

Sorry to disappoint you. As you can see, I’m an ordinary young man in ordinary clothes. You see the Pirate Party. It isn’t a joke party and I’m not a joke candidate, it is part of a substantial political movement. The pirate movement, supported by many around the world, aims for: open democracy, patent/copyright reform and the protection of privacy. Our sister party in Iceland has 10 seats in their parliament.

I take the pirate movements principals to mean simply the following: “Providing people with clear rights.”

Governments are made of people, they’re not magic, so they should operate in a manner that’s accessible to people. If a government is not accessible to people, then people cannot give informed consent to the government, a government that does not have informed consent is worse than no government at all.

Today we are subjected to the politics of fear. Fear deceives you of rationality and provokes instantaneous consent to reactionary policies that you’ll soon regret.

Morgan's Mini Manifesto - Eddisbury GE2017

Morgan Hill's picture

My name is Morgan. I live in Winsford (Cheshire) and have lived here most of my life.

I care about young people who can’t get onto the property ladder, because developers are flooding the market with family houses, I believe this needs to be addressed. I will push for a higher standard of housing stock with the best insulation, the best connectivity and access to green spaces. I will oppose new developments that are not primarily catering for first time buyers. I will also seek to close the loops holes in the help to by scheme that allow people already on the housing ladder to upgrade cheaply at the expense of house prices rising and farthing financial inequality. I will attempt to abolish leasehold for new builds and developments.
