    This week's Stig quote:

    "And that he's spent all week waiting for a cheque from the Germans because he too has spent the last 2,000 years sitting on his backside doing absolutely nothing."


    I assume is referencing something in this week's news, unfortunately I have been busy and out of the country this past week so it went over my head. Can anybody tell me the reference and/or provide a link to the story?


    Thanks guys.

    I think it's a reference to Greece being bailed out again. The German tax payers take the brunt of such bail-outs. The other reference about not doing anything for 2,000 years, well, I'm not sure about that one, but it may be something to do with a remark made by an MEP. I missed the news last week, too.
