Das Bild asks the obvious, but embarrasing Question

It just asked whether the Germans would like to have their precious D-Mark back? The answer is not one that will surprise you.
A poll conducted by the Allensbach Institute and published in daily Bild showed almost half of Germans want to return to the deutschemark
Then we have Ambrose in the Telegraph,
I was struck by a piece in the Frankfurter Allgemeine proposing a new “hard currency” made up of Germany, Austria, Benelux, Finland, the Czech Republic, and Poland, but without France. The piece entitled The Alternative says deflation policies may push Greece to the brink of “civil war” and concludes that Europe would better off if it abandoned the attempt to hold together two incompatible halves. “It can be done,” the piece says.

So hows about this?

A new hard currency covering much of Northern Europe, called the DM, and with a single economic Govt based in Berlin.

Are you thinking of the Reichsmark, perhaps?

Further, there's an "ss" in "embarrassing"


So the fourth reich is about to reveal itself,no bullets needed just debt,we may see germania rise after all.

Ambrose Evans-Pritchard on the Telegraph website 18th May states "US Senate has voted 94:0 to block use of taxpayers’ money for IMF rescues that make no economic sense or bail-outs for countries like Greece ..."

Let us hope that signals the end for the Euro.

Wasn't that plan tried in 1940?
