The sooner it is realized - Germany is a nation that is peopled by self-centered, cold-hearted, tight-fisted Hermannic-Peoples...the sooner the EU could mutually agree to split on North - South divide.

Northern-Europeans to develop a union of their own - a Nordic union where the guiding principles of (i) Productivity,(ii) Efficiency and (iii) at the cheapest possible running costs to the Industrialist govern all work-life Policies top to bottom.

Southern-Europeans to develop a Mediterrenean union
based on work-life ethic where being European matters, and where the pleasures of life govern work-life to bottom.

I have always said: It starts with the French first, then the Italians and then the Spanish...when these 3 Latin countries visit Greece and Cyprus to discuss matters of mutual concern, the Nordic Peoples of Europe should make moves!

Left unchecked, the Merkel-Schaubles regime would see France downgraded to manufacturing bicycles and growing garlic...they would see Spain downgraded to canning fish and producing a variety of wines with Portugual producing the corks to bottle them. Italy would be downgraded to making pizza and macaroni, with the odd cheese thrown in to serve the Herman.

The Germans already downgraded Greece to Balkan levels of existance because this is how they see Greece...a lazy, cheating country. Cyprus they see as a criminal money-laundering Island, so they ruined a perfectly good, legitimate functioning economy there based on off-shore Banking.

Left unchecked, the Merkel-Schaubles regime would make Europe a Germanic only for Nordic Hermans, Jurgens and Gunthers and their sub derivative people-groups.

Greeks Latins and Kelts wake-up - Germannic Europe is not for us!

La germanophobie du Parti socialiste conduit la France dans le mur !

Chaque Les dirigeants socialistes multiplient les attaques verbales contre l'Allemagne.

Tandis que le président Hollande lui-même affirme une « tension amicale » avec l'Allemagne, Claude Bartolone a revendiqué hier « la tension tout court et, s'il le faut, la confrontation » avec le gouvernement allemand. Le PS va plus loin encore aujourd'hui même puisqu'il appelle, par la voix de Jean-Christophe Cambadélis,à un « affrontement démocratique » avec l'Allemagne pour combattre ce qu'il appelle « l'intransigeance égoïste de la chancelière Merkel ».

Cette germanophobie outrancière est très dangereuse pour la France.

Ce n'est pas en insultant tous les matins les Allemands que les dirigeants socialistes français vont sortir notre pays de l'ornière.

Plus que jamais, nous avons besoin de notre partenaire allemand et nous devons nous inspirer de ce qui marche en Allemagne pour réduire notre hyper-endettement public et réussir enfin à créer des richesses et des emplois.

Le Parti socialiste, lui, préfère malheureusement le contre-modèle grec au modèle allemand !

For the first of Germanic model pitted against the Hellenic one!

Like the choice is between the lean Productive Efficient Nordic way, which produces things at the cheapest possible cost for the rich Idustrialist...effectively the Low-Wage choice, pitted against the High-Wage unproductive Southern European way.

The Germanic Way or the Hellenic Way - The choice is for Europe to make.

The choice is simple: Group the Nordics together in a Nordic Union of their own, to live the Nordic Way of Life...leave the Southern-Europeans to develop a Mediterrenean Union of their own, to live their ages-old Mediterrenean Life-style.

Why put conditions on it!

Germany doesn't need anybody. It's funny how so many blame Germany yet many of them want to go there.

What are we looking for? Return to the growth? The sooner the better. Which way to follow? Germany in applying the strict rules of the austerity as they want us to do and so remove all hopes for jobseekers to get back to work in the coming year or more. Or looking toward America? How did they do to get out of their crisis? How are they going now? Better than us for sure. It is just a question, I know we don't have the same ability to inject money in our economy. But it is a better inspiration anyway. Europe is not a federation, we can still act on our own. So instead of criticizing our neighbour we should go ahead with our plan. Never mind if the motor of Europe splits, in our situation it's worth the risk.

Germannic Europe is for Nordic economies that follow 3 guiding principles which govern the work ethic and the Nordic mindset. Northern-Europeans believe they exist to work, to be productive, to be efficient and to deliver output at the cheapest possible cost to the Industrialist.

Southern-Europeans believe they exist to enjoy what
God gave them, Sun, Sea, freedom and randomness!

Making Money does not mean working in a factory pressing buttons and pushing levers for 8-10 hours everyday in order to be able to press more buttons and push more levers tomorrow! on the lowest wage tarrif!

Measuring ones worth cannot rely solely on those Germannic principles and calculations...there is much more to life than that!

Europe is bigger than Germany - but Germany is permitted to run Europe on the premis it is the paymaster!

Their is such a thing as a work-life balance, and the Germanic one is not suitable for Mediterreneans...the sooner France Italy and Spain realize that, the sooner we could kick start off, a Mediterrenean Union.

Shut up already you mentally disabled rat - you are literally clueless about every aspect of life and reality.
Try to find a parallel universum where your views won't land you in a psych ward.
