Angela Merkel sucks Erdogan cock as she emulates another German leader

The headline is deliberately offensive for as someone who, pro tem, lives in the EU I am utterly offended by an assault on free speech taking place in Germany right now.

Comedian Jan Böhmermann read out a poem in Germany about Turkey's fascist President Erdogan. You know the guy who closes down papers and TV stations that criticise him and treats journalists as "terrorists" if they are not "on side". Erdogan demanded Germany prosecute the guy and Angela Merkel has now agreed to this.

Turkey wants to join the EU and no doubt will while Germany is the most powerful nation in the EU and we want to be part of this club? It defies belief that this sort of thing could happen in 21st Century Europe.

One might imagine it if Germany was still lead by Time Magazine's person of the year 1938 but that the next German leader to win that prestigious title acts in this way is shocking.

If Mrs Merkel thinks that such behaviour is going to ensure that the EU Reich lasts for 1000 years with or without an anschluss with Turkey she is sadly mistaken. That was also meant to be gratuitously offensive.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Shame on PWC & Numis, Hat tip Jim Mellon and ouzo for a vindicated Lucian Miers

Jim Mellon says he loves listrening to my podcasts and has sent over a very interesting article following the pulled We Work IPO which I discuss at length. The into PureCircle (PURE) which Lucian has called brilliantly, notably here. Yesterday’s shock warning tells us so much about the disgraceful apathy of folks like Numis and PWC when evidence of aggressive accounting was there for all to see over many years. I discuss another company shown to be swmming with no trunks. It will not be the last.
