As part of the Yourspace online consultation prior to the European Parliament elections the PES invites social democrat bloggers to write on their site for a week – following Eric last week, it’s my turn this week. I’ve posted already about online campaigning for 2009 and common branding for European Parliament elections. More will follow about more idological subjects over the next few days. It’s a real achievement that the PES is inviting activists to write on its website – a determined effort to network committed European social democrats together. So far none of the other European political parties has been willing to be this forward-looking.
