German tabloid Bild gets straight to the point in its Thursday edition: "No! No more millions for the greedy Greeks!" it says on its front page. The daily suggests that their readers who are against another Greek bailout print the page, take a selfie with it and send it to their staff.
The Bundestag, Germany’s parliament, is set to vote on the extension of the Greek bailout Friday. In a test ballot Thursday, Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) voted overwhelmingly for the extension.
Only 22 of the CDU’s lawmakers voted against the bailout and five abstained. Along with its sister party, the Bavarian Christian Social Union (CSU), Merkel’s CDU has a total of 311 seats in the Bundestag – a coalition strong enough to win the vote Friday and extend Greece’s bailout by four months.
