The Tory Pirate - Politics & Policy: Pirate Party Platform Spotlight (Part 4):Supporting Local Representation

A common complaint that the electorate has year-after-year is that MPs do not represent them. As party discipline hastightened into a stranglehold it has, in effect, made it impossible for MPs to represent their constituents’ views inParliament.

“The party will avoid the use of whipped votes in Parliament. Instead opting to seek caucus consensus through debate and discussion.”

No person matches their party’s policy platform exactly. Because of this leeway must be given (Read more…)

The Tory Pirate - Politics & Policy: Pirate Party Platform Spotlight (Part 3): Fairness For Independents

Every election people across Canada seek to be elected as independents. Independents face a number of hurdles notshared by their party-nominated cousins.

The Pirate Party feels that solving thepoverty issue is both achievable and less expensive than relying on a failed welfare system. (Read more…)

Welcome to the Pirate Party Platform Spotlight where I explain a selected planksfrom the party’s 2015 election platform (since I highly doubt the media will). Ok, letsget this over with.

What’s with the attitude? Well, the Pirate Party of Canada is hopelessly typecast. Ifpeople are aware of the Pirate Party they already know it opposes intellectual propertylaw but absolutely nothing else about it. So covering this aspect of the party’s platformboth potentially feeds the public’s erroneous perception of the party as being ‘singleissue’ and completely necessary if its economic outlook is to be (Read more…) . . . → Read More: The Tory Pirate – Politics & Policy: Pirate Party Platform Spotlight (Part 1): Intellectual Property Reform

Drive-by Planet: Rise of the Pirates: a new way of doing politics

*This is a re-post – the earlier post was put on hold due to a possible duplication issue.

The old way of doing politics is increasingly leaving a lot of people disenchanted and disengaged. Low election turnouts and the apathy of voters often comes down to the conviction that it makes little difference who you elect because the mainstream parties play the same old game by the same old rules.
