    Default Irish Pirate Party

    With the success of the Swedish Pirate Party there has been a surge in support for Pirate Parties globally. There is currently a push being made to set up an Irish Pirate Party.

    Pirate Party Ireland

    What are peoples opinions of this phenomenon?

    It's not really relevant to people in Ireland until the law cracks down on people. Remember a few years ago when some fella was elected in Donegal because people were not happy that their television reception was being taken away?

    It's a bit much when they say the Website is coming soon (ie no details/info at all presently) and also then proceed to say that for the moment ppl can submit details if they want to get involved or join the party.

    Cart before horse scenario

    Best of luck with the Party btw

    I find it ironic that the Pirate Party has a form to collect e-mails on their front/only page without linking to a privacy policy.

    I think it's a bad idea. It will cause confusion among the electorate. They'll think they're voting for Fianna Fáil.
