DW has an interview with Pirate Party leader Sebastian Nerz about his expectations for the party now that it has broken through in the Berlin legislature.

Key quote:

we’re not merely trying to push political issues, we want to change the way politics are shaped in Germany

That’s a good summary of what Veronica Hoyo ((UCSD Ph.D. 2010; I was a co-chair of her dissertation committee.)) means by a radical party, as opposed to other types of outsiders.
