Germany places ‘official monitors’ in Eurozone countries

Angela Merkel attacks Paris for allowing its economy to misfire and installs German finance official to ‘aid progress’

 

As the new Socialist president and the German leader’s relationship flounders, Mrs Merkel’s criticism of François Hollande has grown ever stronger.

In a last ditch attempt to save the Euro, Germany has sent out a crack team of financial experts, one to each Eurozone member state, which shall report directly back to the German leadership.

They will hold no official power within the country’s government, but will expect co-operation in providing the relevant economic information, projections and forecasts, alongside privileged data related to their progress on austerity.

According to one German newspaper: ‘Germany will fight politically and use all its economic expertise within neighbouring countries to keep the strong ties that the Euro brings.’

Critics of the move believe Germany is exercising supranational jurisdiction beyond the terms of the treaties and agreements in place, forcing other European governments to operate as Germany wishes against their will.

Some more extreme examples compare the current administration with the Nazi regime. The Germans vehemently disagree. As one official put it:

‘This time around, all the governments agree that the German way is best for them.’

 

Greeks take country back

Greek government falls to protesters wanting ‘fresh start’

After months of escalating skirmishes between freedom fighters and security forces, the announcement of a new ‘bailout’ for Greece, alongside the ominous cloud of further oppressive sanctions from the EU regime, pushed hundreds of thousands of Greek citizens to join the movement and march on the Hellenic Parliament.

This time the police barrier guarding the building stood aside and the people took back their country.

Greece’s monetary situation had caused great consternation among its people. While most believed the country’s finances were poorly managed, the majority also were confident that being part of the failed Eurozone was causing unnecessary pain to citizens, such as loss of jobs and ever-increasing taxes among others.

Erosion of financial sovereignty for the sake of French and German banks had finally pushed the silent majority to breaking point as they felt their government could no longer credibly claim to represent its people.

Speaking at a hastily convened press conference earlier this afternoon, Greek ‘interim leader’ Dino Konstantinos assured international allies of his attention to keep Greece running as usual. He said:

“Today the Greek people announce their freedom. We have lived under German control twice now and have been devastated both times as a result.

“The oppressive EU regime has caused great hardship for our people and the previous government was not listening. From today we unilaterally withdraw from the Eurozone and prepare our country for free and fair elections. We hope our traditional allies on the continent will not abandon us.”

The British government immediately came out in support of the new Greek interim government, stating that it hoped it would bring a new period of prosperity for the Greek nation and closure for the Eurozone’s crisis.

France and Germany are yet to comment.
