Thanks for this explanation Andrew.
BTW, we didn't hear from yours over here in Belgium. As such, a quick
check showed most of the other Pirate Parties didn't get any message
from the PPUS or PPUK regarding this topic either.
Hence at a personal level I can appreciate the PPUS and PPUK
initiative but would have liked it without the personal marketing,
ranting, blaming, fingerpointing and labeling. Not helping and not
And you've always very welcomein our mailboxes.
