HC Strache: “Money for Greece is purest lunacy”

Greece is in its deepest financial crisis. European politicans discuss about giving some money to the broke member of the European Union. Especially Germany should pay a lot, but also Austria is designated as contributor. Freedom parties leader HC Strache is not happy about that.

In his latest press release he labeled the increase of up to two billions for Austrias Greece help as the “purest lunacy”, and criticised that “nothing is too expensive” for Austrias financial minister Pröll (Peoples party).

Strache declared that his Freedom party is categorical against the plans to spend such fantastic sums to help Greece. The politican promised that he is going to do everything he can to prevent this payments. “Austria is in a crisis as well and needs the money for itself”, explained Strache, and declared that Greece should be thrown out of the European monetary union.

    If this article was originally written in English, I would highly advise getting some help with English composition. The author of this article clearly should not be writting news material. But don’t try learning English from a Brit, ’cause they don’t speak it properly anyway. I don’t mean to insult you, but if you are a writer for this site, and you intend to use my language, please give it some more practice first.
    Thanks bro,

    I am English and I understood the article well enough to know that it was written by someone who doesn’t have English as a first language, but that it was readable and the crux of the story is there. As a non-German speaking friend of Austria, I am interested in the news there so I appreciate this site.

    As for your own English; “writting” is not a word. You have far too many comma’s that are unnecessary or in the wrong place. Generally speaking, starting a sentence with “but” is considered poor form although in these new slack days where the language is used incorrectly, it’s acceptable.

    I would highly recommend (as opposed to highly advise) that next time you don’t write off the nation that brought the language to the world as “we don’t speak proper Guv” and instead thank the admin of the site for bringing the news of Austria to the English-speaking world.
