Separate asking does not mean separating in the parliament. But you can 
not act without asking the Pirates anyway.... I don´t know coalitions 
without members having made a voting about a coalition paper. Do you?

So - asking about joining a group after(!) an election would be 
obligatory anyway (or not?). Going to different groups and find out what 
the options for us would be and ask the members. If then swedish Pirates 
would choose another way then spanish or german -- we would have to find 
a way. But to make a decision *before* an election and *before* having 
anything in hand makes not really sense.
