Sorry, by "headline" I actually meant the sub-headline:

Prime Minister Gordon Brown dismissed criticism of his economic rescue plan for the UK today as a matter of "internal German politics".

Depending on paper and journalist, this is either presented as a strong dismissal indicating worsening relations - or as an astute if pointed observation from abroad.
