PPI Incompetence shines through again.
- From todays meeting
"PP-US: we are certain that we did not got any confimation from USPP
after the conference regarding their PPI Membership. They are more than
welcome to submit an application for Membership for the next conference,
They are certain. They're so certain, they've not asked us for any kind
of information on it. Not a single 'well, how and when did you submit
it?' - kinda hard to be certain. For all they know, it was accidentally
misfiled as spam and deleted.
What we have again is the current PPI board trying to gloss over their
failings in basic activities. after a 30 second check of their inbox,
they're *certain* - probably the same certain, that Gregory was that
we'd have the statutes before the conference (he's got a great track record)
Let's also remind ourselves of our esteemed leader's goals for 2010 if
"The goal is to strengthen and build support for the international
pirate movement - including giving kick-start to new pirate parties, and
preparing a big international pirate conference. On the personal and
more local side - to ensure that the Pirate Party of Hesse participates
in the "foreigners elections" in November."
Building support for hte international pirate movement. Anyone feel
Kick start to new parties - can't say much there.
Preparing a big international conference - Well, his goal for 2010 here
is completely busted. Not only is the next one now NOT in 2010, but he
wants someone else to organise it.
The Hesse election bit - well, this one pretty much violates the
statutes he himself wrote.
(1) Pirate Parties International is managed by the Board, the executive
organ. Its Members shall consider the interests of the Pirate
Movement as a whole and shall neither consider themselves, nor be
considered, as representing any particular Member or non-member
Organization or Region.
When he can't even run for the job in accordance with the rules for the
job he wrote, it's a clear sign of incompetence.
Jerry, our other co-president made the following campaign pledge
"Establish Pirate Party in Luxembourg, provide the PPI with a legal
basis (statutes), increase international cooperation between pirate
parties (with the help of PPI)"
3 items. The first ALSO falls foul of the statutes, mentioned in the
second (the statutes which also have a significant lacking, as I'll
mention again, there is no means to remove a board member for sheer
incompetence - oversight, or deliberate, you judge), and the 3rd item he
has also failed miserably at.
10 days ago, I wrote an email, saying that the board needed to either
get their backsides in gear and DO THEIR JOBS, or resign. There is just
under 2 weeks left. So far, nothing has changed. It's still 'looking for
someone else to do xyz' and 30-second certainties.
One of the reasons the Pirate Party started, is because people were
tired of politicians saying, and promising something, then not doing it
or stabbing us in the back. Right now, that's EXACTLY the kind of people
we have running the PPI. PPI as a concept is too important to leave to
these incompetents, bumbling around like a political Inspector Clouseau.
Right now, their pride, and their arrogance is hurting us all. If you
can't handle the position (and you, collectively, have shown you can't)
then step down, and let someone who can do so. No-one would think any
less of you because of it. However, when you make a shoddy product, are
called on it, and keep on making a shoddy product, then people DO think
less of you.
