The Pirate Party is seen by many as a party that stands for the Internet and yet the website isn't a fantastic representation of this (understandably with stretched resources). Of all the political parties it should be the Pirate Party that has a leading digital presence with a strategy that straddles desktop, tablet, mobile and understands how to utilise the web to best serve British citizens.
Here is an brief outline of the work of Obama's digital team
during the presidential elections. I know nothing of politics, and I understand the budget of the Pirate Party doesn't compare to Obama's, but I believe with the power of the web it would be possible to match this success and more with the British public looking for something else that's not Tory, Labour, Lib Dem or UKIP.
Hopefully someone will be able to answer the following questions for me...
- Is there a technical roadmap set out for the party?
- If so, is this publicly available?
- Who is looking after the digital side?
- What does the current digital team look like (numbers/roles/leadership)?
