France And Germany: EU Shit Disturbers Clinging To Unpopular Policies

Among the more irksome countries in the EU, France and Germany have to be on top of the list. Yeh, the UK is treacherous with its obscene crack on free speech and immoral behaviour towards citizens in matters of health and law and order, but they're doing it mostly to themselves. Hopefully, sanity will one day be restored to what was once a proud island that contributed much to world history.

But as it stands, we can but watch from afar in disappointment.

France and Germany on the other hand not only have visions of what the EU should be, but are willing to cause friction forcing other countries to see it their way.

Both countries are increasingly butting heads with a number of countries including Italy, Austria, Hungary and Poland.

The main source? Migration and immigration.

Where the latter group has decided they've taken in enough and have taken this as far as they can, the former say it's not enough and demand for more.

Austria has warned Merkel that it will not accept her incredulously holding on to her 'open borders' policy and will follow in the footsteps of Hungary and Italy.

France has even taken it a step further engaging in their usual duplicitous manner. For example, where the complain about Trump's tariff threats (going as far as to laughably call for a G6 without the United States), they push for protectionism in the EU. Or to sanction EU countries who don't bow to France's appeals on migration.

Not content with that, France decides it's a good idea to poke the new Italian government over its restrictionist policies over immigration raising the ire, understandably, of the Italians provoking PM Salvani to assert:

"If for the arrogant President Macron this is not a problem, we invite him to stop insulting and to show instead some concrete generosity by opening up France's many ports and letting children, men and women through at Ventimiglia," he said in a statement, referring to the northeastern Italian town at the border with France."
