Merkel blames Germany for both World Wars


Very generous speech from Merkel. What would have happened to Europe if the UK had not stood up for freedom, sometimes alone, she says.


And she notably seems to blame the Germans for the First World War, as well as the second.

Angela Merkel also repeated Winston Churchill's famous quote: "To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often."

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has told MPs and peers in Westminster that "we need a strong UK with a strong voice inside the European Union." She also said Europe's politicians must be guided by the need for the EU to constantly change and reform.
