Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If one means financial resources, then that's absolutely correct, but those resources may not be the ones that need sharing.

We don't have to model the next form of poltical activity on past activity. We don't need 20th century modeled political parties on a European scale. We need networks of parties, but networks that really work. This allows flexibility and coordination. The EP's political groups work on this model. It has drawbacks, but it also has strengths. We may not have seen them all yet if we're looking at them with the expectation that they can only be effective if they look like traditional political parties that we're accustomed to on a national level.
