Who to vote for?

May 22nd, 2014

For me, the most important political policies relate to personal freedom and privacy, particularly following the Snowden revelations.

I don’t have the opportunity to vote for The Pirate Party (they’re only represented in the North West Region), so I’m trying to figure out who else has good policies.

The Green Party’s manifesto has a good section about protecting our privacy, pushing for a digital Bill of Rights, and even promoting open-source software!

Lib Dem’s is all about protecting children – which is code for restricting freedom. They don’t even mention privacy concerns or net-neutrality. Hardly liberal.

Labour and Conservatives make no mention of policies about the Internet.
