Pirate Party UK

We believe in democracy, transparency, rights, and a free internet

Civil Liberties

We believe in protecting civil liberties, including freedom of conscience, freedom of press, freedom of religion, freedom of expression, and freedom of assembly. These fundamental freedoms are essential to a free and open society. However, these freedoms must be exercised responsibly and with respect for the rights of others.

For example, freedom of expression is a fundamental human right that should be protected and upheld, but this right does not extend to hate speech or expressions of discrimination against others. It's important to distinguish between personal expressions of identity, such as gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, and religion, which should be respected and celebrated, and expressions of hate and discrimination, which have no place in our society.

Love and respect for others should be the guiding principles when it comes to how we express ourselves, and we will work to promote an inclusive and welcoming environment for all individuals.


We believe that everyone has inherent rights that must be respected and protected, regardless of their background or circumstances. These rights include, but are not limited to, the right to live with dignity, the right to a fair and impartial legal system, the right to equal treatment under the law, the right to privacy, and the right to access to essential services like healthcare and education. We believe that these rights are not negotiable and that they form the foundation of a just and equitable society.


We recognize the challenges faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and a-spec individuals in our society. At Pirate Party UK, we believe in equal rights and opportunities for all individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. We also acknowledge the specific challenges faced by transgender individuals, including discrimination, violence, and limited access to healthcare and legal recognition.

We are committed to advocating for LGBTQIA+ rights and ensuring that politicians understand and address these issues. Everyone deserves to live free from discrimination and to be treated with dignity and respect. Join us in our mission to create a more inclusive and equitable society for all.

Digital Freedoms

At Pirate Party UK, we are passionate about preserving your digital freedoms and privacy in the digital age. We believe that every individual has the right to:

  • Online Privacy: Your personal data should be protected from unwarranted surveillance and misuse.
  • Net Neutrality: We support a free and open internet where all data is treated equally, without discrimination by ISPs.
  • Secure Communications: You should be able to communicate online securely without fear of eavesdropping or censorship.
  • Open Source Software: We advocate for the use of open source software to promote transparency and user control.

We work tirelessly to address issues related to digital rights and fight against legislation that threatens your online freedoms. Join us in safeguarding the digital world for generations to come.

Internet Access

We believe that access to the internet is a basic right that should be available to everyone, regardless of their socioeconomic status or geographic location. Governments have a responsibility to ensure that all citizens have access to reliable, high-speed internet connections, and we will work to promote policies that increase internet access and affordability.
