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

Migeru, could you, our anyone else using the term, elaborate on this idea of "connections"?

I know what connections are, but I am curious as to what people mean on ET when they say, "we don't have connections" or as you just said maybe people "with connections" will join ET.

I am coming from the perspective that if connections are needed, and one doesn't have connections, then one needs to go and make connections.

So I am wondering what people on ET percieve that these people "with connections" will offer ET?

Second, where is Ritter these days? I haven't seen him in a long, long time.

See Migeru's link to his farewell message (in which he called ET spectators of politics).

Being a full-time paid operative of a political party it's too easy to say what he said.

Do you have power? Do you know anyone who has power? At the level when you can make things happen because you know people who can make things happen? Then you have connections.

As for going out and making connection, I should write a diary about how cliquish the English are.

The need to have "connections", and "you are who you know", and mutual back-scratching, were so contrary to my parents' (especially my father's) ethos that I can't say I have any either. And if I have them, I don't know about it, or if I knew I wouldn't want to use them.
