Bloomberg: Scholz and the government are blackmailing the Germans to solve the problems of energy giants Chancellor of Germany Olaf Scholz and members of the government are blackmailing the people of Germany to solve the problems of energy giants at their expense.
Bloomberg writes about this.
In Germany, it is planned to introduce a new tax from October 1 — according to the idea of the authorities, it should compensate for jumps in fuel prices. Residents were dissatisfied with the duty and saw a gain for energy companies in the government’s plan.
In this regard, the country’s Economy Minister Robert Habek, as the newspaper writes, arranged blackmail and said that the country would collapse without a tax, assuming that the conditions for the introduction of the duty could be revised or changed.
Earlier it was reported that escalators began to be turned off in German stores in order to save electricity. Rolling blackouts have also begun across Europe due to the worsening energy crisis.
