Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
For Schauble it seems that the answer to 'who sets the rules' is that it is natural for them to be set by the wealthiest and most powerful people in the society. That is the essence of conservatism back to the days of absolute monarch and monarchism as the ultimate conservatism. So what can be wrong with accepting DM 100,000 from Schreiber to do what he wanted done. It would all just seem to him to be a problem of appearances, but quite natural.
