New deal is a charter for the Fourth Reich

The latest EU bailout for Greece is a master stroke that will make servants of us all, says Frederick Forsyth

IT IS not being widely reported yet, but the document the European powers signed in Berlin last Thursday is in fact the founding charter of the Fourth German Reich.

The ordinary Germans at street level are only protesting because they do not yet realise that. But what has been achieved is a thousand miles beyond a second financial bailout for Greece and it affects the Irish because the land of Brian Boru is perfectly equipped to become the second colony.

This is the way it works. Over a decade, Greece, after joining the eurozone, while not exactly allowed to print its own money, went on an insane spending spree. So did Ireland.
