money over to countries that her heavily indebted like them but at the same time. sean michel the head of the the president of the european. council. wants that money to be handed over so quickly as possible because the because these countries have been hit so hard by the coronavirus and so we may see some some negotiation back and forth as to the size of the loans versus the size of the of the grants and we are expecting a germany to be quite generous in opening its while it when it comes to the coronavirus response which stands of course in stark contrast to tear its usual reputation for being quite frugal and demanding you know austerity programs in a southern european countries why is that the case now well yes just a few years ago in speaking of greece we saw pictures of angle americal with hitler moustache. good on them for a day through the streets of athens people were so unhappy about the austerity
