Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
DCB, having been expelled from France by De Gaulle in 1968, has spent almost all of his adult life, and political career, in Germany, with die Grünen.

Minor historical note: DCB spent only a decade of his political career as a Green in Germany. For the previous 16 years, he was part of the extra-parliamentarian opposition (the '68 movement if you want). Although he first ran for election in a precursor of the Greens in 1978, he joined the party only in 1984 (four years after it was established). A decade later, in 1994, he was elected MEP (then from Germany; he moved to France for his 1999 re-election).
