The Pirate Party continues its victory streak in Germany.
The Pirates got more than 8% of the vote in the Schleswig-Holstein state election yesterday, which translates into 6 seats.
This is the third time in a row the Pirate Party broke the 5% threshold which is needed to enter parliament.
Previously the Pirates won seats in Saarland and Berlin, and if the current trend continues the party has a serious shot at entering the national parliament after the next elections.
