PS well.. well… the people support the anti-austerity, anti-bailout government policy, but the Europe of Merkel insists that being Pro Euro should be against the European people’s will . I suppose, this is German democracy in old DDR-style.

  1. The problem is that the similar percentage of Germans support Merkel and the hard line. And it is a strange fun to jump from news about Greece in German (and 80 % or more opinions below articles in style : we must be hard with Greece, we must remove them from euro, why should we pay for them, the poor German must pay again for the Greeks) to for example Keeptalkinggreece (we must stick to our attitude).
    Euro did not unify Europe, I am afraid. Now Germans say that the Greeks blackmail Germans and Greeks – exactly the reverse.
    Is the confrontation inevitable ?
    By the way, I only repeat the German opinions, these are not my opinions. It looks like nobody is happy with euro…
