  • The monika 'NOTA' was disallowed by the Electoral Commission, so the wording 'Above and Beyond' was used instead for the GE...enough said really, what's in a word? Quite a lot actually! Bluebird
  • Agreed Drowz0r. Britain was desperately in need of change after WW2, and the NHS was Nye's beautiful legacy! Yes, we're all well aware of the Tories...And no, we can't hold a ballot every PMQ! Bluebird
  • Dear Ktetch, When 'at War', the rule book goes out of the window. Rest assured that after 7/7, people wanted blood and the DeMenzies incident came about due to numerous [unfortunate] factors all aligning...When the 'Balloon goes U…
  • Very interesting Dan...I like your thinking! Bluebird
  • Dear jblanchard, Please note that when Nye Bevan 'invented' [copied from the south Wales coalmines] the NHS in 1948, there was always provision for private healthcare within the NHS. However, he'd only estimated that the NHS…
  • Dan, Please see the Nat Libs web-site: www.nationalliberal.org for more info regarding small Nation self-determination. My friends Graham Williamson and Upkar Singh Rai help run the party. Upkar is standing in the London Mayoral Election in M…
  • Dear all, Thank you for taking on my 'tea with...' comment on board. It is a good indicator of thought patterns and 'alliances', and as LuqmanY has pointed out above [towards dawud], any of us could be '5th Columnists'! My leanings are d…
  • Dear Dan, Thank you. That makes my fully-fledged Labour Panto neighbour an 'intellectual fascist' then! I suppose we should imagine that the political spectrum could even be a helix, with many interactions coming from all twisted angl…
  • Dear all, Use the term 'fascists' lightly, yes, there may be people of that ilk in UKIP or similar, but what is a fascist? I would put the hard left in the same camp, as the political full circle 'ends' meet where National Socialism {Fa…
  • Dear Dan, And, of course, the H o L's acts still as a 'ConDem' blocking device, it being full of 'new' libdem Lords especially created to carry on the 'Clegg' effect..! And so to sortition. Bluebird
  • Dear Dan, Thank you, I'm much better informed now thanks to your input! What better way to improve on Democracy than to reinvent a process from the very people that gave it to us?! As regards London, it is much more than a country's c…
  • Thank you topperfalkon. 'Sortition', though, doesn't appear in the Oxford English Dictionary, but a good descriptive word nonetheless! And, implementing which system? I'm merely summarising our Parliamentary history, it's DanFoxDavies that wishes fo…
  • Agreed, 'anarchy' suggests old-fashioned methods, whereas PP's are naturally modern and forward thinking, even if the name 'Pirate' is an association with a bygone age...
  • Dear Anthony, the word 'Anarchism' suggests violence, and I don't think that PP wishes to be labelled as such. Have you thought about the 'Class War' party, they positively love the word! Bluebird
  • Dear all, sorry about the [one year] delay in replying, but, just recently [Jan. 2016] in the High Court, London, an 'opposite-sex' couple wishing for a civil partnership recognised in Law were denied it, due to they're being opposite sex, ie. not g…
  • Dear DanFox, I love the way you write, its quality of the highest, though you've invented a new word 'Sortition', it seems? I'm guessing that you're in your early 20's and full of ideas, nothing wrong with that. Great idea about a roving Parliament,…
  • Dear Dawud, Thank you. No disguising my leaning, anymore yours on these matters. Please bleat away, and agreed, it would be interesting to see which way PP's membership would vote on a leader [red or blue] in this case. I shall give it some thought,…
  • Dawud, FYI, the Falkland Islands were already a British colony 100 years before Argentina [the nation] was conceived, so hardly 'theirs' by right, and as DanFox points out, most of the residents there wish to remain British citizens. And which secti…
  • Well said DanFoxDavies, all aboard the Pirate Party vessel. Bluebird
  • That depends on who's up for Leader, DL, NO, Treasurer etc... I can sense a whole new 'old' guard coming up to the 'Bridge'! Bluebird
  • Thank you topperfalkon, I've selected a venue to do just that, a bar between London Bridge and Cannon Street Sta. So easy for BR, tubes and buses. I'll keep the 'feelers' out on here and get something going in April if I get enough interest... Blueb…
  • Dear azrael, Yes, but 'London' Branch meet at Baker St. Sta. in the 'north', whereas 'Pool of London' would be City, east & south, so slightly different! Granted though, Ed G. and Harley F. both attend London Branch, but live i…
  • I concur Drowz0r. Bluebird
  • Dear Drowz0r, Thank you. You'd think that in a City of 8 Million souls, it would be easy to arrange a group meet, wouldn't you..? Not so, 10 months ago, barely a murmur, so here goes again...next to a major River with ships on …
  • Dear JohnB, You sound like a stalwart that we sorely need, if only you weren't so 'green'. I shouldn't worry too much about cross-over memberships, I've been adrift for years trying to find the 'one'. This 'ship' is too good to los…
  • Dear azreal, Thank you. That's a start. I'd probably look at doing a Wednesday {?} at The Golden Hind, behind Southwark Cathedral, as that's an obvious boat venue, though would look at others aswell. Best Bluebird
  • Dear Dawud, Agreed, they [PP] know little about myself also, so this little oxymoron tete - a - tete of ours could just expand itself into the Leadership / Deputy Leadership contests eventually {?}. I had thought about the DL las…
  • Dear Dawud, Leaving aside the obvious football intonation and south Wales, yes, I concur, core values first [as in its Swedish parent model], other add-ins afterwards. Don't get too Biblical with your script [there are reams alrea…
  • Dear dawud, Welcome aboard our ship, you certainly have a keen pen to say the least, and your input towards debate appears to be exquisite. However, from experience, a new person coming to a [fringe] party and 'offering' to becom…
