She really is hilarious.
And those DAMNABLE Finns!!!! Fancy demanding collateral for loans to a non-functioning, reckless, feckless, non-tax-collecting, retiring-at-55 and bequeathing your pension to relatives country. The NERVE if it. I suppose they have some bizarre idea that they owe it to their voters and taxpayers to make sure their money isn’t tossed down a black hole, but really, such an UN-EUROPEAN ATTITUDE. One never knew the Finns had an attitude problem – let’s hope they resolve it soon. Besides, everyone knows this is nothing to do with them, France and Germany will take all the decisions
Demanding collateral indeed!!! Just imagine if the BANKS demanded collateral from countries they should have known could never pay it back! Where would we be THEN? Of course, they demand collateral from any pleb who wants a loan, even though WE PROVIDE THE MONEY IN THE FIRST PLACE! You couldn’t make it up.
Merkel is “very optimistic”! CRIKEY! It must be lonely for her in that place! Still, the Greek Finance Minister has issued some pledges, so that’s all right then. I do so love pledges – and EU press conferences, with Sarko wagging his finger, usually at Merkel it seems.
“We must always keep in view that we do everything we do in a controlled way.” she says!! Really? You mean, like your banks? HA HA ….
Lewis Carroll would have had a field day with this lot. Merkel would be the Mad Hatter for a start. I must start a collection of her utterances – maybe there’s a book in it for Christmas.
