Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.
You look for the Song Lilli Marleen?

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

When the Euro came, some Europeans (me included) had a strange feeling for giving their more or less strong currency away for one that is shared with countries like Turkey, Portugal and Belgium.
It worked. Okay, it worked way too good, but it worked. The Euro is a hard currency at the moment. Sure things became more expensive since then but besides some moaning here and there you don't hear anything about this side of the problem.
The next step in the EU will now be to let in the next 10 candidates.
Many people already have a strange and irreal fear from Poland, on the one hand do polish workers work for less money than german workers and on the other hand they do jobs, many german workers don't want to do. Not allways, but ask our farmers who need helps in the autumn-time and you'll hear stories about stories about how hard it is to find workers for small money.
People fear that when the borders fall, gazillions of polish people will come over - and all to Germany - and steal all the jobs from the germans because they ask for less money than a German does.
Now there BBC reports that this negative forcasts are bullshit and the situation will become better really soon.
