It was Queen Elizabeth II personally, who ordered German Finance Minister Schaeuble’s virtual murder of the nation of Greece in Eurozone debt-summit negotiations over July 12-13.
The Greek debt negotiations had been proceeding in June. Germany’s demands against Greece were much more moderate at that time, according to an AP wire of today carried in the New York Times. But then, those negotiations were adjourned on June 26, to await the results of the Greek referendum which was held on July 5. (In that referendum, Greeks overwhelmingly rejected the austerity demands of Germany and the Eurozone countries.)
Now during just the same period the negotiations were interrupted, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth made a rare state visit to Germany over June 23-25, and met there with Chancellor Angela Merkel, among others. It is not known at this time whether she also met with German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble. But on June 25, the last day of the Queen’s visit, Chancellor Merkel complained that Greek negotiations had “lost ground,” and Schaeuble warned that the sides were moving apart.
