Merkel gives Papandreou and Sarkozy a lesson in austerity. This photo was taken during a meeting in Berlin between Angela Merkel, Georgios Papandreou and Nicolas Sarkozy (seen from behind) a day before the EU leaders agreed a new bailout package for Greece. This is so embarrassing. However, I'm afraid that many people in Germany and The Netherlands won't understand why.
