I have, following Brusselssunshine, recently covered that EU lobbyist GPlus was suspended from the European Commission lobby register after refusing to disclose four of its clients.
Brusselssunshine has now followed up on that matter, telling that GPlus is back on the register after publishing that the clients previously hidden are:
- Europcar International
- European Private Equity & Venture Capital Association (EVCA)
One could say that through Brusselssunshine (and those following) a valuable precedent in non-coercive EU governance has been sped up, which is not much but still enough to see that EU blogging is not totally in vain.
