The Daily Telegraph and cleavage (10 mar 13)

Germany's new anti-Euro politicians

"propose German withdrawl from EMU and return to the D-Mark, or a breakaway currency with the Dutch, Austrians, Finns, and like-minded nations. The French are not among them. The borders run along the ancient line of cleavage dividing Latins from Germanic tribes." - The Telegraph

I thought it was The Guardian's hacks who couldn't spell. But they wouldn't have made such obvious errors as to claim the Finns are a Germanic tribe, and the Franks aren't.
