Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Just go on with the demonization. That will help.

Yes, yes it will.

Because Greece (and Spain, and Portugal, and Ireland, and Italy) need to wake the fuck up and realise that Germany is not their friend. Germany is not behaving in a friendly manner. And that means that they need to start playing hardball against Germany. Beginning with selectively defaulting on foreign institutions, setting up barriers to German imports to match the German barriers against their imports, and generally behave as self-interested nation-states rather than as members of a political union.

Germany is destroying the European Union, and you are making bullshit mouth-noises about how the Netherlands and Finland are complicit, as if that makes it OK.

The grrek and spanish and irish etc elites want to thank you for your spirited defense of their interests.

Whatever happened to the "main enemy in the own country"?

My country is not in the EMU.

Of the countries that are in the EMU, Germany is the biggest part of the problem.

We frequently criticise the neoliberal morons of other countries, but those criticisms are less visible because those neoliberal morons lack such spirited defenders as the German ones have.

And, again, Germany is the biggest contributor, bar none, to the problem.
