The Pirate Party in Manchester. Looking forward to the Ancoats and Clayton By-election, December 2013

Since the 1st of August we have run a number of stalls, canvassed and leafleted all around Manchester and made a number of videos to let people get to know the Party and Loz a little better and we continue to do so.  We have spent the following:

¹ Some material is obtained from reserves from the party (like posters) and may relate to the party not the candidate. Some printing is carried out internally on HP4600 Colour printers, with toner and paper being paid for by the party as a matter of course, the cost of that is estimated.  In both cases these entries will be marked with a (p).  This list will be updated weekly.
² In line with guidance from the electoral commission, where work has been carried out internally by volunteers but notional expenditure is estimated on the basis of a normal commercial rate from quotes for similar work carried our for the party or on quotes offered to carry out the work, this includes things like leaflet design, video production and web design (which are normally carried out by volunteers).
³ In the interests of transparency we are listing all spending related to the party or candidates in and around Manchester from the 1st of August 2012.
If you want to get involved in things like web design, video production or leaflet design in Manchester, your local area of nationally,  get in touch with our campaigns team.  If you have any questions about the spending listed here please get in touch with us and we will endeavour to answer them.

Democracy is Broken. Discuss.
Mar 11 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Debate with Pirate Party’s Loz Kaye proposing the motion. Voter turnout keeps going down, support for main parties is in flux, the trust in politicians has never been lower. Comedians who urge young people to join a revolution and abstain from voting top the best seller list and are adored. All over the world, theocracy and dictatorships have rolled back the gains of western democratic model achieved at the end of the Cold War. As Fran O’Leary of the consultancy Lodestone says: “Around 39 per cent of people didn’t cast their vote at the last General Election. This year only 41 per cent of people said they would be certain to vote if there was an immediate election, the lowest level ever recorded by the Hansard Political Engagement Audit, and only 12 per cent of young people said they would definitely cast their vote.” We ask: Is our democracy broken? What kind of legitimacy will evolve from here?
