Greeks kick up a Reich stink over Merkel
GREEKS lost their marbles yesterday when boss Kraut Angela Merkel came to town to see for herself how the once-proud Hellenes have been reduced to beggary.
Rocks and fireworks were hurled by anti-austerity protestors, while Merkel was protected by 7,000 coppers.
Her five-hour visit was seen by Greek politicians as a much-needed boost for the country’s future in Europe.
But protestors thought the German Chancellor’s visit was taking the piss, quite frankly.
Germany, and Merkel in particular, have been blamed for imposing strict financial conditions on near-bankrupt Greece in return for EU bailouts.
The situation is now so serious that some Greeks are believed to be actively considering getting off their fat ouzo-blotched arses and doing an honest day’s toil once in a while.
