We are candidates for the Pirate Party in the European Parliamentary Elections - Ask us anything!
Thank you for all your questions and I hope we managed answer most of them - Maria, George and Jack will drop back in and answer some of the remaining ones as and when (and you know how to get hold of them directly if you want to), they are off to deal with the last two days of campaigning now!
I'd just like to say it's been fun, really busy, some great questions and please remember, that if you are in the EU go and vote for someone you believe in on polling day!
So, ask us anything!
(And then go and vote for us on the 22nd. Obviously).
OK, so our candidates have been going at this for about 5 hours now, thanks for all the questions so far, I'm just adding a note to say that Maria has to go to a pane event on immigration to make the parties case and will get back to your questions later (and probably tomorrow). Jack and George should be around for a while longer.
I'll also try to make sure any questions not aimed at a candidate get an answer from me, or someone else from the party too!
(and you can verify their twitter accounts from the party site, or get in touch!).

(Deja-vu? Yes, this was initially posted here but we ran into some problems with the account it was posted from that we can't easily resolve so it's been removed and recreated here! - Do go and look at what has already been answered, but if we can keep the discussion here that would be great! - /u/ajehals (I do campaigns stuff for the Pirate Party..)
