A Europe where only Germany may issue ultimatums
A speech to a packed European Parliament was peppered with 'musts', 'wills' and warnings of the dire consequences of what would be the consequences if the German way of seeing things and ensuring they were then thus done did not prevail, see one report here.
Thereafter in London, following some time with the reasoning challenged British Prime Minister, Merkel then rather let her triumphalism run away with her as she issued a dire warning to the people of our country that no "ultimatums" would be acceptable from Britain, adding they would not be happy alone in the world. Read a brief BBC report on that statement from here.
