Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I think it is insane that you have to pay a party money to be able to vote.  Insane.

You don't pay to vote. You pay to be a member of a party, and then yo uget to participate in that party's internal decisions.

Voting for candidates is free. You don't need to be supported by a big party to get votes. In 2002, the two candidates from the 2 big parties got 36% of all the votes.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
