Brings a whole new perspective on “ Be careful what you wish for”!

Merkel’s legacy being rapidly re-appraised

The newspaper reports that was not quite four months ago that Angela Merkel packed up the giant wooden chess queen that stood in a corner of her office and removed the silver-framed portrait of the Russian empress Catherine the Great from her desk as she left the German chancellery for the last time.

Her reputation seemed guaranteed – with over 16 years of almost relentless crisis-fighting, she had more or less kept the European show on the road single-handedly and preserved her own country’s prosperity and stability. Asked to assess her time in office as a whole, 80% of Germans at the time said it had been good.

Merkel’s “grave miscalculations”

Just weeks later, President Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has laid bare the cost of that prosperity and the hollowness of that stability. The German press now runs daily articles dissecting what one prominent commentator has called “Merkel’s toxic legacy”. She now stands accused of leaving Ukraine, Europe and Germany itself at the mercy of the Kremlin through a series of grave miscalculations, from diplomatic indulgence towards Moscow and chronic underspending on the military to an energy strategy built on cheap Russian hydrocarbons.

“Mrs Chancellor,” as Mateusz Morawiecki, the Polish prime minister, said on Monday, “it was precisely Germany’s policies over the past ten, 15 years that meant Russia today has a strength founded on its monopoly over raw materials.”

A day earlier President Zelensky of Ukraine had invited Merkel to visit the scenes of Russian atrocities in Bucha and witness for herself what “the policy of concessions to Russia has led to in the past 14 years”.

Merkel, 67, who is now working on her memoirs, has largely kept to herself since the start of the war, surfacing only with two terse written statements in which she condemned the onslaught on Ukraine but said she stood by her decision to obstruct the country’s path to Nato membership in 2008.

The Times observes that the fixation on her individual decisions often seems like a form of displacement activity that distracts from the central point: the mess in which her country finds itself today is down to three decades of collective mistakes on the part of virtually the entire German establishment.

As Wolfgang Schäuble, Merkel’s long-serving finance minister recently put it: “I too thought we had to co-operate with Russia. Today I know — I was wrong. We were all wrong.” The Guadian notes that since then, all eyes have been on Gerhard Schröder, the unrepentant ex-chancellor who in his final weeks in power shook hands with Vladimir Putin to ratify the Nord Stream pipeline underneath the Baltic Sea. Just weeks later, Schröder slipped effortlessly through the revolving door to become chairman of Nord Stream.
Crimea sanctions in 2014, did they work?
at 10:50 26 Feb 2022

I think it’s a reasonable assumption that Putins annexation of the Crimea in 2014 was a pre cursor to recent events, giving another front / forward base to attack from.
My thoughts on this having done a little research are, simply the sanctions imposed have done little but accentuate the problem in as much as, confirming Putins assessment that whatever is imposed will be weak & short lived & therefore well worth the risk!
On another note, a quick look at “flight radar” confirms commercial aircraft flights from Moscow in & out of Sharm El Sheik, Cancun etc so the long & short of it is not enough is being done globally to hurt the Russian populous & subsequently the government.
Bonnie & Nors disappointment showing
at 20:50 12 Feb 2022

I’d never have thought I’d say it but, Jackson did well today! Chased, harassed, harried, & his overall game was pretty good.
But, I was disappointed, particularly with Nors, he certainly didn’t chase loose balls, touch was poor, ok, so didn’t have long to show, but in my eyes, wouldn’t start next time either, kind of, peived at being 2nd fiddle to Jackson maybe? Hope not, but on too Bonne, did he show enough quality to get in front of Jackson for the next start? Again I don’t think so, a paradox for sure, who’s the next starter? Jackson did himself no harm today, a bit more confidence & we might just have ourselves a (nearly) new player. I’m guessing, but maybe an arm round the shoulders done Jackson some good, either way, good for the squad.
Smart tv streaming of ifollow
at 11:10 29 Jan 2022

I’ve usually streamed from my iPad to the Apple TV box & watched, the last few months it has not worked & so much frustration, (I’m abroad) last game Tuesday night I had prior to start of stream used my LG tv’s inbuilt internet ability & signed in to “ifollow” put in password etc & waited for the stream to start.
To my surprise it was a seamless experience a really good picture etc & no buffering, so worth a try to anyone reading this who watches on a small screen but has a smart tv & hasn’t tried this method.
Good luck, COYB.
No ifollow video………
at 15:09 15 Jan 2022

Just Brenners audio, this service is really crap is it!
I follow question before Saturday
at 10:10 11 Jan 2022

As I’m not in the UK I can watch ifollow all games (except live broadcast) I have an annual account & all paid up.
Reason for the thread is, of late, last 4-5 games, I can get picture & sound on my iPad ok, but I’m now not able to stream to my tv as I had always done previously via Apple TV box & WiFi, I even tried it using pass through dongle & HDMI cable at the last game, tv mirrors ipad but just a black screen, audio plays from sound bar & that’s it, any ideas?
Morsy, “Get the enthusiasm back”comment
at 09:04 7 Dec 2021

I’ve been thinking about this comment & don’t think it’s been spoken about on here enough, just exactly how & why apparently the enthusiasm has gone?
Pressure on PC from the top, & in turn filtered down.
I always thought PC’s enthusiasm shone through, ok, so I’m not at training etc, but that’s my perception right or wrong?
Watching from Madeira today
at 10:21 23 Oct 2021

I wondered whilst reading this morning about fans abroad, if anyone is on our lovely island & might be watching or want to watch today’s game.
So many fans are abroad & I love to see, where & how they watch, I’ll be tuned in for sure, regards to you all, & in Suffolk at FPR. COYB.
