Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I personally welcome the development of pan-European parties

I wonder how people here might feel about global political parties and of elected representatives to the United Nations (or some other global body)? If I understand aright, transnational parties are banned by the EU at the present time, and I wonder how long that'll continue. Does Lisbon address this? Personally, I don't see ban on international parties in the EU continuing long into the future.

The global idea has popped into my mind a few times in the last week or so. I find it potentially attractive for the way international dynamics are altered.

Colman, you may step in at any time and shoot this idea down with your trademark pith. Have at it :)
