Higgins gets with de Brún in ‘sticky stuff on the ground’

While reading on the election of German MEP Lothar Bisky as new President of the GUE/NGL group in the European Parliament, he replaces the retiring Francis Wurtz, I happened to look at the group’s MEP page. I was surprised, as I hadn’t heard about it but now realise it was mentioned in the Irish Times, but delighted to see Socialist Party MEP Joe Higgins has joined Sinn Féin in that group.

ADDS: I assume SF have recommitted to GUE/NGL despite the speculation after an approach from the EFA if Bairbre is relisted as one of their MEPs too.
