Angela Merkel 'once told David Cameron' what everyone in Europe really thinks of him.

Angela Merkel 'once told David Cameron' what everyone in Europe really thinks of him.

Last week we learned that David Cameron had apparently sent Boris Johnson a very rude text message in the build-up to the general election after disapproving of his public behaviour.

This weekend, it has emerged that the prime minister was on the receiving end of a similar rebuke from German chancellor Angela Merkel following negotiations on Britain's membership of the EU.

According to an excerpt of a new book, Cameron At 10 by Sir Anthony Seldon which is being serialised in the Mail on Sunday, the German chancellor once told Cameron: "We all hate you".

The book claims that the falling out is understood to have stemmed from Cameron's threat to leave the EU at a dinner at Number 10 in 2012 where he had pushed for reforms.

Merkel apparently told the prime minister to "take the advice of an older woman" and "be less aggressive", before she pulled out this zinger...

"You keep putting yourself up as an opponent and we all hate you and isolate you."

The idea behind the text.
Respect for the truth is almost the basis of all morality.
Nothing can come from nothing.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
