They actually got one seat. Were there such a party in my country I’d get off my ass and actually go vote.

Just because you don’t get the politics you want is no proof that democracy isn’t working. It just means that most people don’t agree with you. In a democratic country, at least you can vote for PP.
PP is a laddish and immature party. They exist because our goverment underestimated young mens need for integrity on the net. However, it’s good that they got young men to vote for something else than Sverigedemokraterna, which is a horribly populist and anti-intelligent party. Without PP, SD would probably have got over 4% of the votes. At least PP got some intelligent points about personal rights, and it’s great that they bring those to Brussels.

Sadly the German Pirate Party just got about 0,8% overall here in Germany, so they won´t get one of the German Seats in the EU =(

The low turnout appeared to benefit an assortment of center-right and extreme-right parties across Europe – including a whopping 17 percent of the vote in the Netherlands for the “anti-Islamic Freedom Party” of Geert Wilders, and the first two seats for the “anti-immigrant British National Party”, “some of whose members deny the Holocaust. ”
YAY, HITLER IS BACK! :D and you just voted for him! :D / this should be new headline on news papers in whole EU/ :D

Pirate Party got 7.1% in Sweden. Lund, a university town, had 8.9% for them.
For the Swedes reading this, FI got more votes than V in Lund…

The parties with the most money and power are the ones who win, that’s always been like that, look at the US, there are a lot of parties, but who wins every election? is either democrat or republican… in my country it’s either PRD or Arnulfista, in Mexico it’s either PRI or PAN (in fact, PRI was elected for more than 50 years before Fox), democracy or monarchy are good or bad depending on the people behind the systems…

“The Party Whip” is a good example that democracy is dead. Every vote should be free, even if it’s inside or outside of the parliament.

“Democracy is dead because I personally voted twice against and we still joined the EU”.
That means that is IS working, the majority just didn’t agree with you. Thankfully I might add.

Just because you have Asperger’s doesn’t make you a retard. Albert Einstein and Bill Gates both had/have Asperger’s, and they seemed to make out pretty well. The same goes for Tourette’s and Faces.
