image for France And Germany Learn A Tough European Lesson, Says Controversial Academic
It cost him in the end, too.

After centuries of trying to dominate Europe, the continent's two major powers are learning a tough lesson.

France and Germany are clearly leading the struggle to sort out the Eurozone's financial woes and everyone seemed to be toeing the Franco-German line.

Until Greece decided they didn't want to any more.

The Greek government's decision to hold a referendum on the
"austerity package" drawn up by the Eurozone countries has really thrown the cat amongst the pigeons.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy are said to be furious with Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou over the issue.

"Serves 'em bloody well right," says controversial academic and historian Ken Lucid. "They've had it coming to them for donkey's years.

"They've both spent the last three or four centuries trying to be top dog in Europe, cowing all the other countries in submission. They couldn't do it by force of arms so now they've ganged up and are trying it on financially."

The recently-installed Herodotus Chair of History at the prestigious Hounslow University, was speaking from his headquarters at The Tabard Inn, Chiswick.

"Look - it costs, right? They never learned properly, because they never really took proper control - we saw to that.

"But now they dominate the continent, they find it hurts in the pocket and they don't like it.

"So, it's sorry, Pierre and Fritz - if you want to have Europe in the bag, you're gonna have to pay!"
