Well Angela Merkel was seen shaking uncontrollably in pubic for the third time in just more than three weeks… and spokesmen are still reassuring everybody that there is no cause for alarm.
I’m alarmed. There is clearly something going on and the secrecy is just inviting speculation. Either this is a non-threatening medical condition in which case she needs to come clean or something more serious is up in which case she needs to resign.
If the EU worked as it was once supposed to, then this would be an internal German matter and I wouldn’t care. But the way the EU works at present Germany is the motor of the economy and a lot of other social and political decisions and so there are no internal German matters when it comes to the German government.
