    Oddly enough we came out thinking that Greens are the only ones with a pro-active strategy on Digital Futures, in-depth understanding of technological shifts and also of European real-politik...not a conclusion I expected to come out with! Great session, thx Ed and the team!

      I thought that the event showed the power of incumbency with the two MEPS showing that the job is amongst the most technical political jobs (outside executive politics) there is. Sarah Ludman (LD) showed her expertise over the Telco Directive and it's subsequent politics and Claude Moraes (Lab) showing his expertise, courage and commitment on privacy and surveillance.
