It must surely be about time though that the forums were held by way of conference calls or other such 21st Century technology. Hell the money they could save would go a long way to curing the ills of Europe. The World Economic Forums, WEF, may be useful but can leaders justify the cost?
Germany has been ruffling feathers again apparently demanding that Greece hands over its budget control. Of late German demands have been a cause for concern on more than one occasion. This has caused bad feeling resulting in some saying that rich Germany should now payback some of the money that was used to rebuild that country. And on it goes.Old wounds reopened.
The fact that Germany could even consider asking that Greece hand over control of its budget says a lot. Germany seems to see itself as the B all and end all of the EU right now. This in part is due to the money it stands to lose if Greece crumbles.
However Greece, in line, with Italy no longer has a democratically elected leader but rather technocrats. In some ways it is laughable. The West keeps interfering in countries such as those in the Middle East demanding they follow a democratic path whilst is is dismantling democray in the EU. Hypocrisy seems to be the name of the game.
