what suprise. A German who wrote about German (In)Politicians.
Another round of impertinence. Now I don’t know what fuel prices are in other countries, I just know them from France and Germany, and especially
for Germany ;-). Ok now let’s see price is around 1,40 €/l.. However that’s just half the truth if you now that more than 75 % are taxes. Well you have at least a few taxes
on it. At first it’s a fuel tax and after that all an VAT extra (another 19%). So prices would be around 60-70 ct/l. Now who cries the loudest about “high” fuel price? You have one guess free.
That’s what one can expect from politicians, FUD, and nothing more. If there is no enemy around, they construct one. If there is political nonsense around, well they will find someone else to blame and if that doesn’t help they will pile another layer of bureaucracy upon this political nonsense, and they will try to explain that with rationality.
