Pirate Party asks residents to crowd-source policies with candidate standing in Vauxhall ward for the General Election

Thursday, 5 March, 2015 - 09:15

The Pirate Party is taking open democracy to another level by asking residents to help crowd-source policies that will make up the party manifesto for the 2015 General Election. Mark Chapman is standing for the Pirates in the Vauxhall ward.

Chapman told Brixton Buzz:

“We are proud to be the only Party that crowd-sources its manifesto – letting anyone suggest ideas and comment on suggestions that others have made. It brings in an element of grass-roots democracy that is lacking elsewhere and enables everyone to take part.”

The Pirate Party is a relatively new organisation in British politics. Despite the rather silly name, the core beliefs of the party are civil rights, direct democracy and participation in government.
