Not surprisingly, anti feelings are rising in Germany. There are a lot of unhappy Germans if the report on Newsnight this evening is to be taken as fact.
Addressing the European Parliament Merkel and Hollande made their plea this week, for EU members to act together in tackling the immigration crisis.
They are both putting pressure on UK, and blow me.. Merkel is coming to UK on Friday for meetings with Cameron. Now I wonder what that is about?
Reports say that 80% of the asylum seekers are not Syrian
France don't seem to be so insistent in dealing with the migrants in Calais.
So she has reinforced borders at Austria, wants EU to act together, and is likely about to pressure Cameron into agreeing with her wishes.
I reckon she is going to make a deal and let Cameron get what he wants within the EU for going along with their offloading more migrants onto us. If that happens, then call it what you wish but it seems nothing other than blackmail. On that issue alone, I would vote twice for coming out of Europe.
She already said a couple of weeks ago that if UK didn't play it's part, we would not get any change from her. It's a great example of how to do business isn't it ????? Can't stand the woman, and she's managed to get Hollande on her side now, just like the previous French President. .....and people in this country want a President ? Corrupt and easily influenced .
