Greece has threatened to hit Germany with a bill for tens of billions of pounds in outstanding reparations for Nazi war crimes during the Second World War.

    shouldn’t these Greeks be seeking to sheet home the blame to the Rothschilds Harrimans Browns Bushes etc.? Isn’t this info quite freely available?
