So nice of Viv to offer to pay for it. What ?
Say what you will arkt smellicks ....she’s quite a dish..
I think the Germans are just about fed up with this crap. I can’t see the EU continuing for too much longer.
Tonight’s news Greece has 27% unemployment with 62% youth unemployment. Spain has about 50% youth unemployment.
Just goes to show, leftists and communists are the same the world over.
Too many moonbats there who won’t let their ‘grand project’ go. These European countries are like egg-sacks full of mini-Obamas.
See...Free Trade works....the first Free Trade bloc now is extending welfare benefits....
....because our Free Trade doesn’t create jobs
EU members will only see improved economy when they dump the EU and start tariffs on imports. Stop proving Einstein right....stop the EU membership
The purpose of the EU was to force member nations to redistribute their wealth.
