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…

    Merkel, like most Germans should be used to beer!

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

        Babbling from the bar says:

        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.

      The Golem says:

      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.

    He could have at least done a better job than he did…

    Andrew says:

    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,

      Pundit Too says:

      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.

    Timmytour says:

    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!

    Must have been a Greek waiter, a lot have have had to move to Germany to find work.

    Nor can I remember priapic Prescott taking HIS dunking very well either.

    Cooled his ardour though.

    “It was just a freak accident. Nothing like that has ever happened to me before,” explained the waiter, Giorgos Papadopoulos, 32.

    Deliberate! I personally would not waste a good pint on that scrounging mong.

    Anon Observer says:

    Is this another Greek Takeaway !!!!

    Does anyone know what happened to the waiter afterwards ????

    Nicolas Sarkozy says:

    Did somebody spill beer in your lap, Frau Merkel, or are you just glad to see me?

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

Alexrod says:

It’s money innit.
