    Germany tax surplus

    German finance minister has of 12.3 billion euros surplus from the 2018 taxes. Now this very nice just think what could be done for the citizens who money it is.

    1. Reduce the taxes paid, at the moment Germany has one of the highest tax rate in the world.

    2 improve the infrastructure such as the internet. Romania has better internet than Germany.

    3 refurbish schools, swimming pools, hospital. Millions are required to repair them.

    4 improve the living standards of citizens who are living in total poverty. It is now normal to see Germans in the cities collecting bottles for their deposit. These people are not alcoholics, drug users rather people where the state pension is so low that they can not pay all their bills and eat.

    However this is not the case. They are going to use 11.2 billion for refugees . No wonder people are so angry about Merkels open door policy and are supporting the AFD more and more.

    Angela Merkel, what a lot that woman has to answer for and not only from a German perspective

    Not only this but I've seen some of the rallies and protests due to all the other issues being raised by the open door policy. You have my sympathies as it will be a lot harder to undo what has been done, if at all possible

    I thought she wasn't in charge any more? Plus her being an "East Germany" refugee, she might just have a bit more sympathy?

    And... I see India are planning to put three men in orbit.

    Tell me again... Why does the UK, us tax payers give them £98,000,000 in aid?

    She would be a lot more popular if she promised to use the money to DEPORT refugees / asylum seekers and to stop any more entering.

    Stupid woman - she is one of "Vote Leave's" best friends.

    She is still in charge and I think that she will stay there until she is able to take over from the Tusk position in the EU. Or maybe she is after Junkers job.

    I personally think her supporting the refugee's is an excellent idea! The more she spends on them the better. I think we should send her a few thousand of ours. We keep going on about building more houses a million are needed. So if we sent her our refugees that desperately need homes it would solve her problem and the refugees problems too. Or is that not politically correct these days?

    I have been wondering if I could apply for refugee status after a hard Brexit. I may as well have my slice of the cake as it is a lot money but only if I don't have to become a German. What do you guys think about it?

    We'd have to pretend to threaten your life should you think to return, to build your credibility ducmon.

    You know, send you hate mail, a cut off toenail painted to look like blood, a mouldy half-chewed Bratwurst, a broken Stein...
