Schaeuble’s moment: Large part of Greek population is suffering but the Gov’t does nothing to end this suffering

I have a … moment, right now. I’m deeply touched by Schaeuble’s compassion  towards the suffering Greeks. Hear saying over hear saying, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble reportedly told his Christian Democrat buddies in Parliament:

“We know that a large part of the Greek population is suffering but the Greek government doesn’t see yet what needs to be done to end this suffering.”

I don’t know, how further austerity including V.A.T. hikes, additional cuts in pensions and wages, retirement at 70+ and massive lay-offs will end people’s suffering but Germans have always knew better.

He also said that “negotiations were going too slow” and that despite “some progress in sub-areas, there has not yet been a breakthrough.”

Woflgrang Schaeuble said that discussions revolved around Greece’s fulfillment of the current aid program [call me: Wolfgang Nonstopausteritle] and there was no need to speculate about a “Plan B”.

Schaeuble’s quotations were transported to Reuters by three German conservative politicians who were present at the meeting of CDU’s parliamentary fraction with Schaeuble, where the conservative pals held a big debate about Greece and  “several lawmakers spoke about their trips to Greece and expressed concerns about the willingness to reform there.”

*sigh*

  1. It is reminiscent of the Nazi “concern” that the Jews and other minorities did not have the interests of the German Volk in their thinking and behaviour. Doubtless, the Nazis would find much to commend in Schaeuble’s views about Greece.
