In these days we are reminded why it is a good idea to have reservations about the EU.
to fit more on the money than the other. And right now there are Mette Frederiksen, and thus we are all called stingy in German and French media. Because we stare down a southern european hole and hesitate to send a big check to cover it.
Germany, France and the EU commission will incorporate the giant loan and share the money out as gifts in order to mitigate corona-the crisis.
Wednesday fremturede the commission with a genopretningsfond on 5595 billion. Even on top of the 4000 billion dkk. you have already adopted as the bail-out.
and Sweden are protesting against the giant bill. And, not least, against the EU-countries, who are not good to fit on the money, rewarded for their largesse. The four proestanter called mockingly for ’sparebanden’. In such a case, should the other countries well known as ’spenderbanden’.
Mette Frederiksen has, admittedly, not exactly said it particularly loudly or distinctly - that we will not overturn the money down a big hole in the Southern europe. Mostly because she is preparing, to Germany and France, as always, get their way.
each other, to our ’no thank you’ to the euro – in fact, in defiance of a then-wide political parliamentary backing – was the wisest fiscal decision in the history of denmark.
We are not here to decades after and by the back door melted financially totally together with – and pay for – debt-ridden and bankrupt-threatened countries in Southern europe. Countries that have not managed to tax their own rich and there founded extensive debt on fantastic pensions, which has since been exposed as a generationsrov against their own grandchildren.
and Greece. The upturned håndfladers and skuldertræks region, where responsibility for the economy, apparently, always are some others. Why not say to the greeks that if they maintain that everyone has the right to a pension after 35 years in the labour market, we rely not on them? Or to the italians, that if they show more willingness to get to grips with the extensive corruption and the mafia, do they recover themselves?
As the Swedish EU minister Hans Dahlgren said Wednesday: - It is clearly in our interest that both Italy and Spain and the rest of the countries get the economy moving again. But we think, this must be based on loans, not gifts.
Denmark has over 600 billion dollars in exports and 330.000 jobs are at stake. But it must be help to self-help. It means that the other even need to do anything. It means conditions.
The most sad thing is that with this comprehensive economic plan for the EU, we manage all towards a federal republic, a federal european UNION. Which is precisely what we danes have reservations.
Call us just stingy. As long as we are not naive. We were just starting to like the european UNION, showed studies .We will see now, as they say.
