I found https://www.partijgedrag.nl/ using a Google search, didn't look at it much yet.
Of the parties that can be checked because they've had a seat in the government it is one of the best parties to vote on if privacy, surveillance etc. are important for you. It remains to be seen if the Pirate Party will do better if it ever ends up with seats in the government.
I'm serious about privacy and IT stuff, but I am also serious about education and peace. Calling your party the animal party, 50+ party, pirate party, etc. just forces you to ignore anyone who doesn't identify as an animal lover, as 50+ or as a pirate (or internet freedom fighter).
You cannot seriously scream "piratenpartij is nonsense because it is single issue" when the pirate party has 60 page party programme that touches upon all aspects of society [https://piratenpartij.nl/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/PPNL-Ver...]
whilst the expected largest party has only a single sheet of paper that just says "Get rid of all Muslims in Europe + Close all borders" [https://www.pvv.nl/images/Conceptverkiezingsprogrammma.pdf]
I would be a lot less worried about piratenpartij getting a seat in parliament than PVV getting 50% if you're worried about single-issue parties.
It's not because they have no (or a bad) programme, I said what I said because they are "the pirate party".
Regarding the PVV, the "party vor vreedom" (literally translated, for the non-Dutch people here), yeah they're literally George Orwell's 1984 doublespeak. A party for freedom that restricts our freedom every step of the way, and focuses on muslims the whole time. They should have been called the anti-foreigner party, or perhaps rename to Autochtonen Eerst (as a reference to America First). But anyway that was not the topic.
Also, the PP actually has standpoints on all major issues. In many ways they're a more libertarian version of Green Left.
But maybe it would be nice to be able to elect different parties in different areas of policy, like the water board.
Indeed, they do! That's why it's such a shame they're called PvdD because I don't have any particular affiliation with animals. I'm fine with them being treated well, but if that is so leading that they had to name their party like that, I am not sure it's a party I should vote for.
Oh is that why they chose that name? Because I completely agree with that sentiment, but I thought the point of starting the party was to improve conditions for animals as opposed to only humans.
I'm really just a bystander but it seems to me that she's already made the party significantly better organized since she started. Notably some people who preferred drama over results have resigned from board since she started. There hasn't been any drama since.
Is a little ironic.

I mean, not US level crazy, but the country I used as an example of how it should be done is gone.
I have to recommend CGP Grey's rules for rulers, along with the death & dynasties followup.
They are going to give their critical opinion about the bill now, before it can pass.
And maybe, given enough time, be part of a movement that reverses this bill.
(ECHR has much the same role of power limitation in Europe as constitutional law. Germany has additional protections because of its history.)
It's not clear to me what they actually are given power to do. Are they given free rein to collect anything they can get their hands on? Anything that crosses the national border? Are they allowed to spy on for example a whole city to find the communications of a suspect?
Pretty soon we'll need endpoints on the ISS.
