For Kat Myrman’s Twittering Tales. A 250 character story.

    1. I heard about that in the news this lunchtime. How inept, undiplomatic and boorish can you get? Hasn’t he heard of National Socialism and where it lead the world? Cretin.

      1. Hello Jane! Yes really, butbut i think he – more his chief 😉 – will harden the EU members tate to care more for their own citizens. Poorly me own state Germany since years is too egomanic. Michael

      2. The US uses bully boy tactics everywhere, but this character just seems pig ignorant with it. I hope you’re right, that the member states will start working as a unit since each one has the impression that most legislation favours Germany. One reason maybe why so many of them have degenerated into populist run states where all problems can be blamed on the foreigners (including Germany).

      3. I also hope so! Without equality between all members of the EU the community will break down. Then much more populism and nationalism will rise up. I think the SU government will do a stresstest with the EU. Michael
