WATCH: Waiter Drops Tray of Beer on Merkel

Given the soaking she got, Angela Merkel remained incredibly calm after a waiter dropped a tray of beers on her head:

Guido can not picture Sarkozy taking it that well…

      It looks like it’s not her first time getting “splashed”.

        Wouldn’t have happened if they used proper beer glasses. Or steins even. Anyway, something with a handle rather than stems. Stems are for wine, handles are for beer.

          If it happened to Dave, he’d probably not even notice. I expect being doused in beer was positively obligatory in the Bullingdon club.

      sarc, What more proof do you need that she is a reptilian. She clearly did not even feel all that beer touching her fake skin which hides her rough reptilian skin… /sarc

      Gifts? We ran out of them years ago. They are all in Switzerland or the Far East.

    Nothing a German likes better than a nice golden shower.

    Hardly a shower – just bounced off her back. Great scoop for the Daily Star.

      Well the recent climate scandal involving Wire fraud, ID fraud, electronic impersonation, faked documents filled with lies, due to the criminal activity of Dr Peter Gleick of the Pacific Institute, proves that not only is Peter Gleick himself a self-confessed crook, but climate alarmists in general (from the “scientists” themselves, through their closed minded acolytes in the media and politics), also are willing to resort to accepting and engaging in lies, smears, fakery and deception as proof of their argument against climate reality and scientific debate.

      I am much happier to be on the side of the climate debate which relies on honesty, truth, empirical measured evidence, the integrity of utilising and sticking strictly to the whole of the “scientific method” as a way of establishing genuine, repeatable, falsifiable, scientific proof.

      Climate alarmists, warmists, man-made climate change activists and advocates now cannot argue their case whilst being on the correct side of that divide.

      As has been beautifully stated elsewhere,

      “After you have convinced people that you fervently believe your cause to be more important than telling the truth, you’ve lost the power to convince them of anything else.

      I doubt they give shit about the climate – it’s all about control.

    Beer shampoo is very good for the hair and may even help restore growth, a little tip there for the prematuring baldies, who read this blog. HAHA, HEHE, YOU`RE A BALDEE!!!

    Very cool reaction from Angela I think…

    Given that she is the only responsible politician left in Europe, that helps…

    The Germans always get moist at the thought of invading Poland.

      Perhaps Dave will shortly be asked to provide a contingent of troops for a joint EU invasion force for Spain to install a puppet government. Madrid is making all the right
      (i.e.wrong) noises at the moment.

    You’ve got to admire their training, they only lash out with the riding crop when there are no hostile witnesses about.

    Our last Prime Minister would have torn the waiter’s balls off and stuffed them into his mouth (the waiter’s, not his own) – and then got really angry,

      Can you imagine Lard 3 houses Prescott’s reaction to this incident?
      Difficult to believe that the Germans used an amateur waiter at an important beerfest. Must be a socialist plant.

    Despite what the Greeks say the Germans are not a stingy people. Sure it’s sometimes hard to get anything out of them but…..

    …the beers are on Merkel everyone!

    Cooled his ardour though.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
