I have rarely read such a load of drivelous, rancid, nationalistic bilge. Can you pls get something straight:
A) Germany has GIVEN BILLIONS AND BILLIONS of euros to the poorer regions of Europe over the last four or so decades.
B) Nothing OBLIGED us to do it; it was a compulsion driven by guilt from the war and a desire to bind Europe together so it would never happen again.
C) NOBODY LEFT ALIVE is now guilty for the war. They are ALL DEAD.
D) The Germans are FED UP paying out vast sums to feckless, idle, non tax-paying and usually venal governments. They have put their OWN house in order and humbly request that the rest do the same.
E) Of course the rest can do what the HELL THEY LIKE as they are sovereign countries (Ha, Ha – see Greece, Italy etc) but IF these feckless, idle people want OUR money then there are CONDITIONS.
F) They do NOT HAVE TO TAKE OUR MONEY. They can do their own thing and leave us alone. Now THAT would be a fine thing for us.
G) IF you are going to continually take our money then you accept the conditions. Otherwise get on with it yourself. Stop whinging and for God’s sake stop this “Nazi” stuff. It is INCREDIBLY MORONIC. The Germans would like NOTHING MORE than to stop having to give you money to bail you out of your own greed, idiocy and incompetence.
H) The Germans have sod all oil and other raw materials. All they have earned is through their own EDUCATION, WORK and DOING THINGS RIGHT. We are not Supermen: just humans like you. DO AS WE DO IF YOU WANT TO SUCCEED. If not, then DO YOUR OWN THING but NOT WITH OUR MONEY.
In other words, Mr journalist, your article is a load of drivel. We in Germany have NO WISH to impose ANYTHING on ANYONE, but IF you want our money then there are conditions. Do you know of ANY giver of money who does not attach some conditions, except a doting parent? Do you want us to give billions with NO conditions? Is THAT it?
This crisis has been caused by IDIOT POLITICIANS. For example, France has not set a balanced budget since NINETEEN-NINTY-FOUR. It is no wonder they are bankrupt, but it is NOT GERMANY’S FAULT.
That plebian Greeks and/or Italians can be moronic, I can understand. The real culprits are their own feckless, greedy and incompetent politicians. But the latter manage to deflect the blame elsewhere of course, and Germany is a good scapegoat. But YOU, Mr Journalist, YOU should know better than to peddle this drivel.
