Pirate Party UK launched its Open Manifesto for the 2017 General Election on Wednesday 17th May, with the core policies of free speech, radical reform of copyright, and the end of mass surveillance of innocent people. The launch took place right in front of the SIS building (the home of MI6) in Vauxhall where Mark Chapman, the Party's Lead Candidate is standing.

Press Hit: Pirate Party looks to make waves with Vauxhall manifesto launch

The Pirate Party wants to rock the boat in Westminster with a manifesto launch yesterday in Vauxhall.

Other branches of the party have gained ground in countries such as Iceland in recent years, standing on a platform of internet freedom and the reduction of government surveillance, and the UK party hopes to do the same.

Mark Chapman, the Vauxhall candidate who won 201 votes in the last general election, joined party leader David Elston and Vale of Glamorgan candidate to reveal the manifesto in front of the MI6 building.

They both expect that their policies will increasingly resonate with voters and impact future politics.
