PostSubject: Somebody Tell Jimmy !   Mon Apr 29, 2013 5:13 pm

There's been a bit of political upheaval over in Iceland with this weekend's national election. In this upheaval, it appears that the brand new Pirate Party of Iceland, which started just a few months ago, was able to squeak by the 5% threshold and gain what appears to be 3 Members of Parliament. That would make it the first Pirate Party victory in a national parliamentary election. The Pirate Party has elected two MEPs to the European Parliament from Sweden, and there have been a number of victories in various German regional elections, though the German Pirate Party has also gone through some recent upheaval of its own. The Icelandic Pirate Party is lead by Birgitta Jónsdóttir, who is a former Member of Parliament in Iceland who got plenty of attention (including from the US government) for helping Wikileaks.


(For those joining us late, Jimmy the Pirate pirat was one of the more colorful characters we've ever had. I hope he sees fit to come back some day. )
