It seems that the news on Slovak MEP Vladimir Meciar joining the Independence Group/Democracy Group (formerly EDD) - see previous post – is a tad premature.
The alarm was raised by a TEAM member who saw Bonde on Slovak TV boasting of his new recruit, but our Blog has drawn quick denials. His participation had not been discussed, nor agreed upon. The contacts were Bonde's own initiative and Meciar is not a member of the group, despite Bonde's comment on Slovak TV.
What I find difficult to believe is that the famous Jens-Peter Bonde should actually have got something wrong. Surely not!!
