Arrrr ...

Great news!

The Swedish Pirate Party has gathered enough votes to be guaranteed a seat in the European Parliament... the Pirates have 7.1 percent of the votes ... This means that the Pirate Party will get at least one, but most likely two of the 18 (+2) available seats Sweden has at the European Parliament

Pirate Party leader Rick Falkvinge:
"Together, we have today changed the landscape of European politics. No matter how this night ends, we have changed it. This feels wonderful. The citizens have understood it’s time to make a difference. The older politicians have taken apart young peoples’ lifestyle, bit by bit. We do not accept the authorities’ mass-surveillance"
Just a little corruption in Sweden
