german bureaucracy costs

24 Jun

Google is considering pulling gmail out of Germany following new rules on identification.

TechCruch has the story. If the Germans are pushing ahead with these draconian registration protocols, surely it’s a precursor to a move by the EU? The EU was created to open up Europe, making its people more free; yet as its bureaucracy grows, the less free we become.

    Hm, true, Munich in fact IS a nice city, I just don’t like the Bavarians so much (I hope one of my best friends isn’t reading, he’s Bavarian LOL). Well, the thing is everyone in Germany (except the Bavarians of course) says that Bavaria doesn’t belong to Germany. Hmmmmmm, I wonder why…..
