Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I am constantly surprised at the german political leadership clinging so faithfully to Bush White House propaganda. Just as the French, they showed great independence in the run up to the Iraq debacle, but somewhere along the line they musta realised how much fun it is to just lie and lie and lie and get ridiculously invasive legislation through by scaring the public silly.

Something wrong with the economy ? Look, over there !!! Terrorists !!! be afraid, be very afaid, the muslims are coming.

I would like to think the german public are too cynical, but I see no signs of that asserting itself.

keep to the Fen Causeway
