The UK and EU - Taking A View From Stockholm

Loz Kaye's picture

Sometimes it's good to take a step to see things more clearly. I started writing this in Stockholm after being invited to the official election campaign launch for Sweden's Pirate Party. It was their success in '09 that kickstarted so much interest in the Pirate Party movement.

So it was good to take a moment to remember that.

But also it was worth taking a step away from the already poisonous atmosphere in the run up to the European elections in Britain. Other British party leaders chose to kick their campaigns off bickering with their enemies. We chose to kick it off talking with our friends out in Europe about what we have achieved.

And the Pirate Party has delivered way more for the British people than UKIP has for instance. And that's even without any British MEPs. Think what we could achieve with a candidate like Maria Aretoulaki in Brussels.

PiratPartiet was founded in 2006 and its early successes and political aims inspired the rise of Pirate Parties with similar goals in Europe and around the world, as well as the formation of an international Pirate movement.
