Germany isn't like Greece. Whoever, or whatever, told you that was lying. What Germany does have is a consistently stronger economy than us, a higher GDP, a better productivity rate, and might I add from personal experience, a better work rate. Strangely enough, they can combine all thses things with a very great deal of social responsibility woven in to the fabric of their society. Sounds like a wonderful thing to aspire to to me.
I find it strange that when Germany was run by a genocidal maniac the right in this country were all for them, but now they've sorted their act out they don't seem interested.
I don't recall saying they were
I said the Germans are dictating or trying to dictate to the likes of Greece how they run their country by fiscal threat against the people of Greece's will! I think all the demos there back this up and what democratic rights do the Greek people have in the face of the mighty German led EU? None, thats my point, so much for a democratic Europe
! Spain next? Will the Germans finally size control of Majorca as part of a dictated bail out? Europe should have stuck to the market theme nowt else.
As for a stronger GDP etc you should not nor should they forget who set them up for this, mainly us and uncle Sam, don't forget either that money was pumped into Germany all the way through the cold war because it was literally "the front Line" so much so that the US service personel we were with had a "life expectancy" of 8 mins, just enough time to make sure all their planes got in the air in the event of a full scale East/West conflict. Sure there was strict control over them after starting two world wars, you would expect that but to think it was some great German miricle is pushing it a bit.
** Forgot to add this was pre the fall of the Berlin wall
Just remind me when the last time was, that our country elected a Government with more people voting for it than against it?
Are you recommending some sort of PR voting system, to redress this flaw in our undemocratic electoral process?
