Germany is Committing ‘Economic Suicide,’ Says Czech Finance Minister

Britské listy (Czech Republic)

“By giving refugees 670 euros per month and free accommodation,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel is committing economic suicide,” said Andrej Babis, Czech Finance Secretary and Deputy Prime Minister. According to Babis, the only solution of the refugee crisis is hermetically to seal the external borders of the European Union. “When your bath tub is leaking, you must block the hole,” said Babis on television [Sept. 27, 2015]. In his view, the refugee quotas cannot work because no refugees want asylum in the Czech Republic. They all want to go to Germany.
