Angela Merkel‘s chief of staff is in hot water after he directed a profanity-ridden rant at a fellow conservative on the eve prior to last week’s vote on the euro back-stop fund, reports Der Spiegel.Ronald Pofalla lost his temper with prominent CDU parliamentarian Wolfgang Bosbach when the latter said he was opposed to expansion of the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF), according to reports in Bild am Sonntag.
Pofalla apparently approached Bosbach and said:
“I can’t look at your fat face anymore. All you say is s***.”
When Bosbach responded, telling Pofalla to “have a look at the Constitution. For me, this is a question of conscience,” Pofalla reportedly said:
“Spare me that shit!”
Yet more worrying signs of disunity for Merkel’s government? Sure looks like it.
