Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The problem is that you apparently see things purely in terms of a propaganda war; while I see the debate of ideas as being useful in itself.

It's a simple fact that increased oil prices in recent years have impacted the standard of living of the vast majority of Europeans (Norwegians excepted).

Denying this fact on the basis that other factors have caused greater impacts on standards of living, would be rather unsound. On reflection, I don't think this is what you are doing. Rather, I think you are trying to censor all mention of any other causes than Europe's self-inflicted financial crisis.

I don't find this useful.
