Nasz Dziennik - Poland | 14/10/2011

In the end Germany always wins

Germany's dominance in Europe is so great that Slovakia had no choice but to agree to the extension of the euro bailout fund, writes the nationalist Catholic daily Nasz Dziennik: "Football is a simple game; 22 men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end the Germans always win', the former top-scoring striker of the English league, Gary Lineker, once quipped. The confusion that currently reigns in the Eurozone countries over the extension of the euro bailout fund shows that democracy in the Union increasingly resembles football in the times of Gary Lineker. ... In the fight with the German leadership the Slovaks didn't have a chance. To paraphrase Gary Lineker you could say that EU democracy is a system in which 27 EU states reach their decisions independently, and in the end they all dance to Germany's tune."
