Germany becomes Eurosceptic

There’s an interesting article today on ConservativeHome that puts forward a case that Germany has become Europe’s second eurosceptic nation, typical ConHome spin I hear you scream, but reading the German press and talking to friends in Germany it would seem not to be the case – there really is a genuine groundswell of annoyance and dismay with the European Union, a system which many Germans are now rumbling is unfairly biased it’s decisions toward latin nations for too long: a view that’s been long held by many in the UK – especially when it comes to the ludicrous con that is the CAP.

Now would be a very good time for our new coalition to stand strong with Germany: they’re our nearest neighbour in many ways: our cultures have so much in common and our position in Europe is similar economically – we’re both reliant on world trade (for Britain financially and for Germany in exports). Standing with Germany now would be a superb opportunity to force long needed reform on the EU which for so long has limped from one kludge to another.
