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

Be A Council Candidate!

We’re looking ahead to council elections in Manchester this May already. The Labour party have made no secret that they want a one party state of Mancunia. That will be bad for our communities, bad for our city, bad for democracy.

So, we’re after people to step up and be candidates for the Pirate Party in Manchester. You don’t have to have any particular background, just to want real change in this city. Don’t leave it to the same old tired lot. It’s time to offer a different vision for housing, tech, open democracy, the environment and transport here.

If you would like to be part of that, contact us on manchester@pirateparty.org.uk . We’ll help you with the details.

So if you are cheesed off in Chorlton, hard up in Ardwick or feel you’ve been shafted in Sharston get in touch. If you don’t, who else will?

Debate with Pirate Party’s Loz Kaye proposing the motion. http://www.discuss.org.uk/discussion/democracy-is-broken/ 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?
