    That is classic but the episode got banned by the BBC recently although I believe it was because of the Major's rantings using the 'n' word and nothing to do with offending the Germans!

    Does this mean that I will be banned from the forum? 😭

    Arnold Schwarzenegger has got big problems with his name as Schwarze is black in German and the last part of his name is the "n" word in German.

    Ms Huhtasaari the Finnish MEP stood up in an EU meeting and demanded Sweden got it's money back.

    She is talking about currency. She applauded the UK for saving £80 billion in our situation and says Sweden will lose 40% of it's income through the Euro currency.

    The rest of the countries are all bewildered at the failure to get people to agree on a Corvid recovery strategy.

    Germany needs the EU more than ever due to covid 19 as it's economy is export orientated. It could suffer a major recession if it's markets do not or cannot buy its products. I suspect that it will try and flood Europe with its products such as cars at a reduced price.

    It is being shown that shops have only increased their sales by 13% in May against the sales in April. This is not enough to cover the losses of the lock down.
