Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
networks of parties, but networks that really work sounds fine to me. And I was thinking of EP groups when I wrote about EU-level alliances.

But my point was that, for most citizens, these groups are practically invisible. And not because people are looking for something they shouldn't be (ie old-fashioned type political parties). It's because there's no communication, no doubt because the democratic link, the voter link, is too indirect to push the pols to feel the need to communicate.
