The photograph comes from a small blog (The author says…..‘If you do read this (and to date) it has been viewed 41 times – though whether by 41 people I don’t know…)….but its sentiment expressed in the title could very well be the BBC’s attitude towards Eurosceptics.

Forget UKIP, many economists in Germany now want an alternative to the euro freaks, too
‘A drum roll please for ‘Alternative für Deutschland’, a soon-to-be-established party in Germany whose would-be founders and supporters are terminally f***** **f with the whole euro crisis, Merkel’s measures to solve it and cross-party support in the Bundestag for those measures.’
A new Euro sceptic party, Alternative For Germany, has been formed…..it formally announces its creation tomorrow.
Coverage has been widespread across Europe, even the Indian press reported the story.
Not the BBC website.
The BBC seems to have studiously ignored this new party despite it being described a ‘nasty shock for Merkel’.
Germany’s New Anti-Euro Party
03/08/2013 | By Charles Hawley
Anti-euro political parties in Europe in recent years have so far tended to be either well to the right of center or, as evidenced by the recent vote in Italy, anything but staid. But in Germany, change may be afoot. A new party is forming this spring, intent on abandoning European efforts to prop up the common currency. And its founders are a collection of some of the country’s top economists and academics.
Any reason why the BBC says so little about Euro sceptics…even a party formed from some of Germany’s ‘top economists and academics’?
No doubt it will merit a quick appraisal tomorrow and then disappear from the web pages as rapidly as the BBC’s coverage of the German green energy policy disasters do.
The world’s biggest news organisation…beaten by a blog that has had 41, now at least 42 including me, viewers. I wonder how much he pays himself?
