It’s a message not being made clear enough for four pupils at a secondary school in Wales.

The Independent says that the four, all aged 13, have been suspended for making Hitler salutes at their German supply teacher.

His boss having told German MEP Martin Schulz that he would make a good Kapo in the Lagers Of Auschwitz, one of Berlusconi’s colleagues, a junior Italian minister called Stefano Stefani, has taken up the anti-German drum.

In a letter published in an Italian paper, Stefani calls Germans ‘hyper-nationalistic blondes’.

‘We know the Germans well…indoctrinated from the beginning to feel top of the class whatever the situation,’ he says.

Stefani then moves on to the question of the aforementioned Herr Schulz.

He concludes that ‘he probably grew up taking part in noisy burping contests, after drinking gigantic amounts of beer and gorging himself on potatoes’.

The result is that Gerhard Schroeder, the German chancellor, is threatening to cancel his annual holiday in Italy.

Rumours are that he plans to visit the Czech Republic instead, before moving onto Poland, Hungary, Norway, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, France…
