    The Eurozone

    Default Muppets

    Daily Wail:

    On Monday this week the same magazine said that Mrs Merkel is actively plotting for an EU without Britain in it and thinks David Cameron and the British are the Statler and Waldorf of Europe, it was claimed yesterday.
    The German chancellor apparently likens the Prime Minister to the grumpy Muppets who constantly grumble from the sidelines.
    Der Spiegel:

    That, of course, assumes that Britain, which is not a member of the euro zone and which often opposes steps towards closer European integration, will play along. If it doesn't, it won't be possible to change the EU treaties. Euro zone governments would have to come up with a separate treaty as they recently did with the fiscal pact. It wouldn't be an optimal solution, but it wouldn't be acceptable.

    The British should not underestimate Schäuble's determination to solve the euro crisis. Chancellor Angela Merkel backs the proposals even though Schäuble admits: "The chancellor is still a little more cautious than me." He added with a smile: "That's also why she is a little more successful than me."

    Chancellor Angela Merkel has compared British PM David Cameron and the British with Muppet Show's grumpy hecklers Statler and Waldorf.

    Sources in Berlin were quoted as saying by the German magazine Der Spiegel that Merkel saw Cameron and his compatriots as "Statlers and Waldorfs of Europe", who constantly complain from the sidelines.

    The report claims that the German chancellor was "already tired of British complaints about the direction in which the European Union is going".
    Which one are you:

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    One thing I give it to the English is how sleek liars they are. Judging mostly from dealing with agents but still.
