Since when have Krauts ever been fair?

Angela Merkel reckons the EU is going to be fair and even minded over Brexit.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is renewing a pledge to conduct Brexit talks “fairly and constructively,” while also stressing the importance of European Union unity and the need to protect the interests of EU citizens in Britain.

Merkel says that Germany will push to “create clarity and planning security as quickly as possible” for EU residents in Britain, including about 100,000 Germans.

She added that the EU also must “limit the damage that Britain’s withdrawal could bring for the European Union as a whole if the withdrawal and transition did not succeed.”  

Merkel said during a speech in Hamburg that it’s important that the remaining EU 27 members remain as united in the negotiations as they have been since the Brexit referendum in June.

I don’t think she is speaking truthfully. Since when have Krauts ever been fair or reasonable?

And she isn’t if you look at comments from the Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys and the EC President.

The EU’s chief Brexit negotiator is warning that the bloc will not discuss a future relationship with Britain until all 27 member states are reassured that their citizens living in the U.K. will be treated “properly and humanely.”

French negotiator Michel Barnier said such assurances are needed to build trust for a new post-Brexit relationship.

Speaking Friday at a conference on the EU “state of the union” in Florence, Barnier said protecting the rights of EU citizens was a “moral duty” as well as a political necessity,

He said: “The European Council has decided that preserving the rights of EU citizens and families will be the priority, will be my priority.”

“It will not discuss our future relationship with the U.K. until 27 member states are reassured that all citizens will be treated properly and humanely.”

 

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has drawn laughs at a conference by announcing that he’d speak in French because “slowly but surely English is losing importance in Europe.”

Juncker was speaking at the European University Institute in Florence’s annual “state of the union” conference, which comes amid Brexit negotiations and the upcoming French presidential runoff.

Juncker opened his remarks by saying that he had decided to speak in French.

His reason? “Slowly but surely English is losing importance in Europe.” Drawing applause and laughs he continued: “And then the French will have elections next Sunday and I would like them to understand what I’m saying about Europe and nations.”

Juncker and other EU officials have been engaged in a war of words with British leaders this week before Brexit negotiations.

The Frogs and the Krauts might find themselves exiting too before long, the way things are going in Europe.
