Pirate Party Goes to Brussels


The Swedish Pirate Party has won one seat in the EU parliament, with 7% of the vote in Sweden (in elections for the EU parliament held on the weekend).  By way of comparison, the Green party won 10% of the vote.  Source SMH.  Politicians ignore this at their peril.

    More worryingly the UK far-right BNP won two seats, getting 10% of the vote in one place.. :-(
