According to Falk on Twitter, the German MEP Markus Faber (EPP), number one on the 2009 EP list of the Bavarian Christian democrats (CSU; which run separately from the Merkel's CDU), has told on German radio that the German government should do politics for Germany and not represent the interests of Poland.
I don't know in which context this has been said (maybe in this one), but I would like to remind that Alexander Stubb just recently has asked for more community orientation among EU member states and Ferber's position does not sound too much in line with the ideas of the Finnish foreign minister.
In a unified European Union, Germany should well defend the interests of Poland, because Polish interests should be German interests as long as they serve the citizens of the EU. Mutual understanding and support are the basis of a Union, and therefore Germany is asked to listen as much to Poland as Poland is asked to listen Germany.
But it doesn't sound as if Mr Ferber is very much oriented towards a joint European Union!
