Democracy is in crisis in the United Kingdom. Whether it is online or on
the doorstep, people are telling us that they feel alienated, ignored,
that they have given up voting as it changes nothing.
It's this sense of powerlessness over the forces that shape our lives
and the space around us that is so worrying in the UK today. Creeping
privatisation means all aspects of our society are being divided up and
parcelled out. It can be impossible to find out who is responsible for
the most basic aspects of our environment, public spaces and services,
let alone get anyone to do anything about it.
The Pirate Party develops policy in a collaborative manner, allowing
anyone to have input and ultimately allowing its members to make the
decision as to what the party stands for. The policies you find on these
pages are the result of a process that allows us to refine and
continually assess our positions, a process that we would encourage you
to take part in.
