O'Connor just misses the point
Sir -- I think Brendan O'Connor is missing the point when he compares the present German leader Angela Merkel with Adolf Hitler (Sunday Independent, October 31, 2010).
Germany is a country of around 80 million people and in European terms an economic giant. Many of the transfers which we in this country got from the various EU funds since EU entry have been courtesy of the German taxpayer.
If our Government had managed our affairs as well as the German government had managed theirs, we would not be in the mess we are in.
