It will be interesting to see what the Economist will say if they ever notice the connections. My guess is heads will explode.

German news agency Deutsche Presse-Agentur and British newspaper The Independent both criticised the nomination due to the funds mismanagement issue, with French daily Ouest-France alleging that the cause of British indignation was the perception that Cioloş would be akin to a second French EU Commissioner, given his close ties to that country.[18]
