Ah yes, ReformTM, that old chestnut...

And it's not only the CDU:

Germany′s populist AfD party wants France excluded from common European currency | News | DW.COM | 24.04.2016

"We can have a common currency with the Netherlands, Austria, Finland or Baltic states. They have similar cultures of stability like ours," Joerg Meuthen, the co-leader of the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, told the daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung in an interview to be published on Monday.

The AfD leader told the paper that the political culture of France and the southern European states was different from Germany's. "They don't want austerity at all," Meuthen underlined.

The AfD's deputy leader Alexander Gauland shares Meuthen's views on the exclusion of France and the southern European countries from the eurozone.

"No one wants to throw France out. But France is certainly a political problem. And for that, I have no solution," Gauland said.

Apparently no one has told these neostormtroopers that Finns and Estonians aren't Aryan.  Learning that people can be blonde yet "impure" would make their little, acephalic heads explode.

Wait until they find out that Lithuanian and Latvian are Ural-Altaic Languages. I am sure they have never heard of linguistic replacement.

Perhaps they just want to go back to cosy old East Germany, with a Prussian outlook towards the East...
