No country deserves the title of European leader when it's politicians unleash disrespectful attacks against elected leaders of other European nations. I admired Merkel in the past for many reasons but her recent handling of the 'Greek' crisis has left many of us shocked. Merkel has destroyed the good reputation of Germany in the space of 4 weeks. Many of us are appalled and disappointed. Title of EU leader does not belong to Germany. France acted with reason and honour!
