Sam Coates, David Charter and Michael Savage The Times - 03 June 2014 “Europe tells Britain to increase taxes” * David Cameron was told to tear up his economic policy by Brussels yesterday, hours after being warned by Angela Merkel that Britain faced being ignored over who should become president of the European Commission. The prime minister faced a double reminder of the difficulties in store on the eve of a critical G7 summit and urgent talks with the German Chancellor. There is growing alarm that Mrs Merkel, who is thought to be one of the UK’s strongest allies, could now allow a sceptic of Britain’s planned renegotiation with Europe to take the top job in Brussels. She told a press conference yesterday that she was pressing for Jean-Claude Juncker, the former Luxembourg prime minister and arch federalist, to head the European Commission, in the face of staunch opposition from Mr Cameron. Her comments came as the commission urged the British government to raise taxes, provide more affordable c ...
David Cameron is on a collision course with Angela Merkel after the German Chancellor backed a Continuity candidate as the next president of the European commission. Mrs Merkel announced she wants Jean-Claude Juncker to get the key post despite the Prime Minister making clear he views the former Luxembourg leader as a symbol of Europe's past. Now on one hand I see this as the beginning of David Cameron's battle against Europe to negotiate a new deal prior to the UK's ''promised'' EU referendum. And on the other one I wish the President of the European Commision Jean-Claude Juncker, all the best in his new job.

The two-faced Germans are letting Putin wreak havoc By SIMON HEFFER PUBLISHED: 01:40 GMT, 8 March 2014 | UPDATED: 01:40 GMT, 8 March 2014 79 shares 176 View comments As Europe’s leading power, a global economic titan, and a nation that has sought since 1945 to set an example of peace and democracy, Germany ought to be at the forefront of demands for sanctions to be imposed on Russia after its outrageous behaviour in Ukraine. But it has signally failed to discharge its moral duty towards Europe. The main reason is self-interest because the German economy is massively dependent on Russia. Not only is Russia one of the main markets for its exports, but its industry and homes rely so heavily on the country’s gas and oil. What’s more, Germany’s chancellor, Angela Merkel (who grew up in a Soviet-controlled area east of Berlin) and her Kremlin counterpart Vladimir Putin (who once worked for the KGB in Dresden) have a pretty strong relationship. Too close for comfort: Angela Merkel with Vladimir Putin, on ...

Germany's Angela Merkel urges 'strong' UK in EU In an historic address to both Houses of Parliament, she said Britain and Germany shared the goal of a "strong and competitive" European Union. "United and determined", they could act as a beacon to the rest of the world. But she stopped short of committing to specific reforms saying it had to be a "step-by-step" process. David Cameron is pulling out all the stops during Mrs Merkel's one-day visit because he sees the German leader as crucial to his aims in Europe. Beginning her address in English, before delivering the main part of her speech in German, she said: "Some expect my speech to pave the way for a fundamental reform of the European architecture which will satisfy all kinds of alleged or actual British wishes. I am afraid they are in for a disappointment. "Others are expecting the exact opposite and they are hoping that I will deliver the clear and simple message here in London that the rest of Europe is not prepared to pay almost any price to keep ...
German Chancellor Angela Merkel is to address both Houses of Parliament and have tea with The Queen during a symbolic one-day visit to the UK. Mrs Merkel will follow in the footsteps of other leaders, such as Nelson Mandela, Mikhail Gorbachev and Ronald Reagan, in addressing MPs and peers. She will later hold talks with the three main party leaders, David Cameron, Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband. Her support is seen as crucial to the success of Mr Cameron's European aims. The prime minister has said that if the Conservatives win the 2015 election, he will seek to renegotiate the terms of the UK's membership of the European Union and put the outcome to an in-out referendum of the British people in 2017. The Guardian reported on Wednesday that Berlin was prepared to offer "limited opt-outs" to the UK over its future compliance with existing EU directives and to make sure some other regulations were more flexibly enforced.

Angela Merkel has been confirmed as German Chancellor for a third term, at the head of a grand coalition, by a vote in the Bundestag. The coalition between her centre-right CDU/CSU bloc and the Social Democrats has a huge majority, with 504 of the 631 seats in the lower house. Mrs Merkel was confirmed by 462 votes, with nine abstentions. Germany's tough stance on fiscal discipline is unlikely to change under the new coalition. The SPD's membership voted on Sunday to back the coalition after painstaking negotiations. The new government dominates parliament - 504 seats out of a total of 631. This means that the important arguments will be held between ministers within the government - rather than on the floor of the Bundestag. If Social Democrats, for example, want a softening of the financial discipline of the last few years, they would quickly bump against the ever-present Finance Minister, Wolfgang Schaeuble, who remains in his post. The Social Democrats took a swipe at him in the election campaign, accu ...

Fresh reports in German media based on leaked US intelligence documents are prompting damaging new questions about the extent of US surveillance. Der Spiegel suggests the US has been spying on German Chancellor Angela Merkel's mobile phone since 2002. Another report says Mr Obama was told in 2010 about the surveillance and failed to stop it. The spy row has led to the worst diplomatic crisis betweeen the two countries in living memory. Leaked documents say a US listening unit was based in its Berlin embassy - and similar operations were replicated in 80 locations around the world. The German interior minister has been quoted as saying such an operation, if confirmed, would be illegal. On Friday, Germany and France said they wanted the US to sign a no-spy deal by the end of the year. As well as the bugging of Mrs Merkel's phone, there are claims the NSA has monitored millions of telephone calls made by German and French citizens. 'Obama's green light' Der Spiegel claims to have seen secret documents from t ...

Spying row: Merkel urges US to restore trust at EU summit 24 October 2013 Last updated at 18:34 Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel has said it is "really not on" for friends to spy on each other, referring to alleged US snooping on her phone calls. On arrival at an EU summit in Brussels Mrs Merkel said "we need trust between allies and partners, and such trust needs to be restored". She said she had given that message to US President Barack Obama when they spoke on Wednesday. Other EU leaders also voiced concern about the scale of US surveillance. The spying row threatens to overshadow EU talks on the economy and migration. Mrs Merkel has demanded a "complete explanation" of the claims, which came out in the German media. She grew up in former communist East Germany, where secret police surveillance was pervasive. Her delegation in Brussels confirmed she had met briefly to discuss the issue with France's President Francois Hollande, who has expressed alarm at reports that millions of French calls have bee ...
EARLY BIRD NEWS UPDATE @ 7AM WITH ORANGE UGANDA DON’T BLAME M7: Anti-Corruption Coalition Uganda says President Yoweri Museveni should not be fully blamed for the increasing cases of corruption in the country.

In a report released Monday, Human Rights Watch said despite promises throughout his 27 year-long reign to fight corruption, Museveni's government's patronage politics and lack of political will continue to undermine the fight against corruption in Uganda.

Merkel and Putin view exhibition of disputed art: Germany's Angela Merkel and Russia's Vladimir Putin have visited an exhibition featuring art looted from Germany by the USSR in World War II. Reports said Mrs Merkel had intended to use the visit to the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg to ask for the items to be returned. But she toned down her remarks saying that Russia and Germany would continue talks about the issue. Mr Putin said the war art issue was "very sensitive". He said it was "hardly worth starting an argument now" and added that the two sides should seek "ways to resolve it". Mr Putin denied there had been any suggestion of cancelling the visit. "We had not cancelled anything, we just wanted to see if we would have enough time," he told reporters at a news conference with the German leader. Mrs Merkel, who was in St Petersburg to address the annual St Petersburg International Economic Forum, said it was an important step that the works were now on public display for the first time.

Germany-Turkey diplomatic row erupts over EU bid: Germany has summoned the Turkish ambassador in a row over Turkey's bid for membership of the European Union. Turkey's EU Minister, Egemen Bagis, has accused German Chancellor Angela Merkel of using the Turkey issue in her campaign for re-election. Berlin earlier blocked a plan to resume EU-Turkey negotiations next week. On Monday, Mrs Merkel sharply criticised Turkey's crackdown on recent anti-government protests, saying the police action was "much too harsh". Mr Bagis hit back on Thursday, saying that if Mrs Merkel was looking for "internal political material" ahead of Germany's September elections "this should not be Turkey". 'Unacceptable' On Friday, German foreign ministry spokesman Andreas Peschke said it had summoned Turkish ambassador in Berlin, Huseyin Avni Karslioglu. Mr Bagis's comments about Chancellor Merkel had been "unacceptable", Mr Peschke added. He stressed that Turkey's negotiations with the EU were being held up for "technical reasons", ...

In an interview, Mrs Merkel said the high levels of youth unemployment in Europe represent a "huge crisis", comparing the eurozone's difficulties with post-Communist eastern Germany. Speaking to the BBC, she said that when unemployment soared after the fall of the Berlin Wall, "many young people ... only had jobs because they moved to the south." Mrs Merkel said: "I think it's unfair that it is the young people especially who have to pay the bill for something they didn't do. "But there's no way around it. We have to manufacture products or offer services in Europe that we can sell." Her comments are the latest indication of Germany's concern that the prolonged economic crisis in southern Europe is putting the European project under strain. Germany is seeking to attract more migrants from crisis-hit countries to meet its own shortage of skilled workers. In the interview, the German Chancellor emphasised the need for economic reforms that would make Europe more competitive rather than insisting on limits t ...
"Three barriers block Germany taking on that leadership—all understandable ones. The first and hardest to surmount is historical. Even the word for leader, Führer, conjures up terrible memories. Having twice plunged Europe into war, many Germans believe their country's duty is to be a bigger version of Switzerland: economically prosperous, politically modest. The second reason for Germany's reluctance to lead is the belief that the ultimate cause of the euro-zone crisis is the laziness of southern Europeans, and that if only they were as productive as Germans none of this would have happened. The solution, on this view, is for the rest of Europe to become as hard-working and fiscally prudent as Germany. Mrs Merkel's third reason for failing to lead is tactical. Germany, goes the argument, will get more done if it guides from the rear. With hostility growing around Europe, too much Teutonic assertiveness will be counter-productive. Moreover, moral hazard is a problem. If Germany seems ready to open its ...
Germany wants a more powerful Europe to have the last word on national budgets. But other countries are giving this short shrift. This new tension was evident when Italian prime minister Enrico Letta made his first official visit to Berlin last week. With furious voters at his back, Mr Letta insisted: “I’m not here to justify domestic choices… We know German citizens have no intention of telling us what we have to do.” In this showdown over austerity, it is Germany that has blinked first. Berlin, which has overseen Europe’s austerity policy since the start of the debt crisis, is now indicating that it is relaxed about eurozone countries failing to hit their deficit-cutting targets. In the case of France – Germany’s key partner in Europe – Mrs Merkel is now offering an alternative prescription: economic reforms that will reduce labour costs in the long term. The move is a necessary recognition of the deep unpopularity of insisting on spending cuts at a time of acute pain; the average unempl ...
Mrs Merkel is said to be furious with her aides over the gaffe that was uncovered by local reporters. More than 600 items looted by the Nazis that are still used by the government.
Mrs Merkel caught with Stolen Loot, will she be Charged with receiving Stolen Property I wonder?
France and Germany mark treaty Mr Hollande and Mrs Merkel posed in front of the Brandenburg Gate France and Germany are marking the 50th anniversary of a treaty that helped to reconcile the two former foes. The German and French leaders have been holding talks in Berlin and there will also be a joint session of the two countries' parliaments. The Elysee Treaty was signed by Charles de Gaulle of France and Germany's Konrad Adenauer on 22 January 1963. Despite ups and downs in the relationship, Berlin and Paris have been key shapers of the European Union. De Gaulle described Europe as "a coach and horses, with Germany the horse and France the coachman", and the co-operation between the two nations has been the foundation stone of the European project, the BBC's Europe editor Gavin Hewitt says. Reception German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande met figures from the arts world at the French embassy in Berlin on Tuesday. Wim Wenders, the German film director, recalled his links to ...
In a move that will be grasped by British Eurosceptics, Mrs Merkel told Germany that she will repress Europe's biggest financial markets and fight to strengthen the EU's grip on banking.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has pledged her country's continuing support to Greece, during her first visit to Athens since the eurozone crisis erupted nearly three years ago. Mrs Merkel was met by Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras on arrival in Athens. European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said on Tuesday that tough austerity measures across the eurozone were necessary if the currency bloc wanted to contain the debt crisis.
Mrs Merkel has decided she must avoid the potentially dire consequences of a Greek exit ahead of next year's elections in Germany.
Mrs Merkel tells a joke about George Bush, who went hunting with friends. Funny joke about George Bush. Angela Merkel speaks in English. Funny

Angela Merkel, Germany’s chancellor, has had a bad run of late. A consensus has taken hold among Germans that her Italian, Spanish and French counterparts outmanoeuvred her at the European Union summit, on June 28th and 29th. Despite this Mrs Merkel remains more popular among voters than any potential rival or her party as a whole
"European officials argue that just getting Mrs Merkel to agree in principle to discuss things like the mutualisation of debt would be a big achievement, as would getting the French to talk about surrendering the powers of the Fifth Republic. Yet talking is one thing, agreeing quite another—and there is still no sign of accord among leaders."
Wow. If supplanting Mrs Thatcher in being the most iron lady was her goal, Mrs Merkel certainly already succeeded.
So, it seems that Greece is to stay in the Euro.I bet Mrs Merkel is pleased, she is now one step closer to TOTAL EUROPEAN DOMINATION!

BTW, Hollande is VERY nice: Don't expect Le Pen to make "proposals" with 300 nukes at her disposal, Mrs Merkel.
Mario Monti looking quietly.presidential at Camp David. It makes me a little bit proud to see him always seated in position of prominence, with the leaders of France, Germany and the UK . I suppose it does help that Mrs Merkel doesn't have to worry about being groped by the Italian PM...for a change.

Alexis Tsipras' answer to Angela Merkel: "Mrs Merkel is used to addressing political leaders in Greece as if there's a protectorate here"
Raising the spectre of a Greek exit, the German Chancellor said “solidarity for the euro” was threatened by the ongoing political crisis in Athens. Stock markets around the world fell sharply with fears mounting that a euro break-up could lead to renewed financial turmoil. The FTSE-100 index of Britain’s major companies fell by two per cent to 5465, with bank shares hit particularly hard.The cost of Spanish government borrowing also hit a record high since the single currency was introduced because of concerns that the crisis will spread.Today, François Hollande, the new French president, will be sworn in and, in an indication of the concern gripping Europe, will almost immediately travel to Berlin to hold talks with Mrs Merkel that will be dominated by Greece’s plight.
THE respite in the euro crisis lasted a few short months. Now, despite a €130 billion ($169 billion) second bail-out for Greece, a fiscal compact agreed on by the euro-zone leaders in December, and €1 trillion of cheap long-term loans from the European Central Bank, the night terrors are back. How dispiriting that Europe is still so ill-prepared for the ordeal to come. Time is short. In France voters have given their new president, François Hollande, a mandate to alter the “austere” course set by his ousted predecessor, Nicolas Sarkozy, and Angela Merkel, Germany’s chancellor, and to focus on growth. Mrs Merkel says she will not change the fiscal compact, but Mr Hollande needs something to show voters in legislative polls next month. More threatening is the second election looming in Greece, where parties are struggling to form a government. If a majority of Greeks again vote to reject the spending cuts and reforms that go with their country’s bail-out, then euro-zone governments—in particu ...
Everytime they mention Mrs Merkel I get an image of Mrs Merton,
What's the difference between Mrs Merkel and Mrs Merton. Let's have a heated debate.
Quote of the day: "Nobody should get carried away by a hope that the euro zone is embarking on a radical new course. Calling for growth is like advocating world peace: everybody agrees that it is a good thing, but nobody agrees how to do it. Mr Draghi’s ideas, as far as they can be divined, are to promote structural reforms to make labour markets more flexible and encourage entrepreneurship. Mrs Merkel echoes this, saying promoting growth need not cost billions. Liberals add that a key to higher growth is to remove barriers to the EU’s single market, particularly in services. Yet Mr Hollande is against such ideas. His programme for France, which has one of the biggest public sectors in the world, is mainly about more spending and more taxes. In the EU he wants common European project bonds to finance infrastructure, a capital injection for the European Investment Bank (EIB) and a redirection of EU regional funds towards jobs. Much of this can be done so long as Mr Hollande does not try to reopen the a ...
"The Pot calling the kettle black." First of all I agree with German Chancellor Angela Mrs Merkels gesture of threatening to boycott Euro 2012 in Ukraine in condemnation of politically motivated imprisonment of Yulia Tymoshenko by the pro Moscow Yanukovych puppet regime in Ukraine However, I would like to ask Mrs Merkel whilst on the topic of things, or more to the point people, who are Ukrainian, to answer for the German Governments duplicitous and totally hypocritical stance when it comes to protesting about the imprisonment of Yulia Tymnoshenko on the one hand, whilst having until recently imprisoned and persecuted a completely (and already proven) innocent man for crimes instigated by her own country's recent Nazi history whilst simultaneously failing to pursue other former Nazis probably still at large in her own country, one of whom had even held a Government post in post war West Germany. I say that without even mentioning the amnesty from further investigation given to German citizens ...
