Germany rejects 'goosestep' image

Germany's foreign minister has urged British people to change their out-of-date opinion of his country. Joschka Fischer believes the negative view many Britons - especially young people - have of Germany is harming relations between the two nations.
He said the media was largely to blame for continuing an image of Germany as the land of the "Prussian goosestep".

Bulletin to Herr Fischer: it was Germany's turning David Hasselhoff into a pop star that has so tarnished that great nation. I can't blame the Brits: they gave you the Rolling Stones and the Beatles and look how you've paid them back.

It could be generations before the damage is repaired. We remember!
