German lesson

• The suffering of people is all the more heinous when their politicians can't understand what they're told in Brussels.

Mrs Merkel's clarifications to RTE are rather like a teach-er sending notes home to schoolchildren's parents! How humiliating that must be.

Don't any of Fine Gael's superfluous advisers speak German?
