The Pirates are Coming!

As reported in the Telegraph, the UK now has a Pirate Party officially registered with the electoral commission. It's a interesting addition to the political landscape, especially given the success of the Swedish Pirate Party in the European elections.

The party's website makes it clear that the UK party exists in its own right and will be making its own policy which may differ from the Swedish party, so I'll definitely be keeping an eye on the site to see how the UK party's views on freedom in the digital age compare to the Swedish approach.
