A finance minister from Germany with a public debt/GDP ratio of 65% has just criticised the UK government with a debt/GDP ratio of 43% for...wait for it - borrowing too much.
The Tories think this tells us something.
It does - Germans can talk shit just as much as the Tories do.
I know most of the top Tories spend large amounts of time abroad dodging UK taxes and running the UK economy into the mud betting on foreign exchanges and short selling their hedge funds, but this must be a first - when did the Tories last agree with the Germans on anything? Oh except for supporting Hitler in the run up to the war (No Lord Rothermere of the Daily Mail group, we lefties will never let you forget your 'hurrah for the Blackshirts' headlines and appeasing Hitler propaganda).
