Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
1) The BuBa owns 20% of the ECB's capital (~GDP in the EU27), so it is not farfetched that they have disproportionate influence on decision-making; 2) going by the public pronouncements of the people involved, the Germans have been notorious for public breaches of ECB council collegiality, undermining or delaying ECB action repeatedly in this crisis; 3) we're still pretty much living with the non-petty economic consequences of Herr Weber.
