Bluestreak
:
I don't know what you mean by "Ethical setup" so I asked.
[
03:02am
]
K`Tetch_
:
*sigh* - ok, actual acton comes from matching party goals with public interest. and leveraging them to maximise parrty visibility. Right now, the current focus is on eithics.

]
K`Tetch_
:
so focus on and emphaisis what makes the Pirates better in the ethical sphere when it comes to fulfilling positions and offices

:
You mean the party focus should mirror the media's focus?
[
03:04am
]
K`Tetch_
:
focuses on evidence based policy over personal ideologies
[
03:04am

:
There is a SFPP right now.
