Candidate

I'm looking to become the Pirate Party Candidate in Waveney, Suffolk

Hello everyone, my name is Adam Clarke, I'm 19 and currently doing a level 3 IT apprenticeship following an extended 3 year stint at college studying History, Psychology, Computing and Maths AS, then jumping ship to Film Studies, Creative Writing and English Literature A Levels.

I am a socialist, left-leaner and I care desperately about our digital rights and access to information at such a pivotal time in human history. I feel slowly these new-found freedoms are being eroded and it is up to us, the people, to try and take that power into our hands and protect freedom of access and net-neutrality, as well as foster an online library of information for people of all wealths and backgrounds to access. As such, I felt that my allegiances lay best with the Pirate Party and their ideals of digital reform, liberal reform, economic stimulation through investment rather than austerity, the complete top-down reorganisation and refocus of education, the removal of nuclear systems like trident, protection of the NHS, transparency and equality within the judicial system, and equality within the welfare state.

Pirate Party UK will contest Green target seat, Sheffield Central

Thursday, 12 March, 2015 - 12:30

The Pirate Party has announced it will be standing at least one candidate in Sheffield for the General Election in May.  Andy Halsall was selected by local members on the 5th of March 2015.

This will be the first time in the Party's five and a half years of campaigning in the UK that it will be standing candidates in Sheffield. Previously the party has contested Parliamentary seats in various parts of the UK, including London, Manchester, Derby and Leicester, as well as the European Election in 2014 and Scottish Parliamentary Elections.

Prospective EU Candidate: George Walkden

I'm a lecturer and researcher in linguistics at the University of Manchester, where I've been working since receiving my PhD in 2012. Before that I studied French and German, and lived and worked briefly in Germany in the (justifiably) much-reviled pharmaceutical industry. My main policy interests are, unsurprisingly, in issues surrounding access to knowledge: the costs of higher education, the dangers of digital exclusion, language policy, and open access to academic research.


 I've been active in promoting the latter for some time now, and founded a no-fees open access e-journal in 2011. I look forward to the opportunity to stand as a candidate, and will bring my administrative, public speaking, language and research skills to the team.As regards Europe, though I am pro-referendum as a consequence of my belief in direct democracy, I think the evidence indicates that membership of the EU is beneficial to its citizens. Nevertheless, I am deeply sceptical about the level of transparency and democracy in EU institutions: for instance, the ongoing central role of the unelected European Commission is not acceptable in a 21st-century EU. 

Prospective EU Candidate: Maria Aretoulaki

I'm Maria Aretoulaki and I'd like your backing as a Euro candidate for the North West region.

I first came to Manchester back in 1991 as a postgraduate student of Computational Linguistics from Greece and an ex-Teacher of English as a Foreign Language. After a 9-year break working in Germany at Universities, Research Institutes and start-ups, I came back in 2005 to work for a big IT company near Manchester airport. 

Since 2008, I've been running successfully my own IT Consultancy, DialogCONNECTION Ltd., based in the Manchester City Centre and serving clients all over the world (US, Asia, and Europe, including the European Commission in the past 6 months). So, having lived and worked here for a total of 14 years, Manchester is my chosen home!

In that time, apart from being active in the professional world of the IT Business, I have channelled my love for electronic music by supporting the associated music scene of the North West and becoming a DJ, podcaster, and promoter myself, playing and organising gigs all over England, broadcasting online radio shows and supporting young producers in making a name for themselves.
