Default The Swedish Pirate Party wins a seat at the EU.

No pun this time, it's true. With 7.1% of the vote, the Piratpartiet (Pirate Party) won a seat in the Swedish elections.

seeing as the BNP has also won seats I can only hope that just one or two seats is so small that nobody will listen.

The BNP actually won a seat in my area which has led to widespread anger among people . It wont give them any power in europe but it will give them a foothold to get their voices heard in britain though
