Germany's EU Commissioner Oettinger 'Deficit Sinners' Flags Should Fly at Half-Mast'

With the debt crisis in Greece spiralling out of control, German EU Energy Commissioner Günther Oettinger suggested some radical solutions on Friday. Not only should EU officials take over tax collection for the 'obviously ineffective' Greeks, but 'deficit sinner' countries should be made to fly their flags at half mast.
Greece should be forced to fly its EU flags at half-mast in shame, Oettinger said.
