German hospitality to Britain over a generation
Tom Peck of the Independent does not neglect the trivia of Mrs Merkel's meeting with Mrs May yesterday. He relates that the two prime ministers retired to a "meal of veal and mushrooms followed by marinated wild berries and ice cream". The Chancellor clearly has a healthier life-style than her mentor, Helmut Kohl, who insisted that Mrs Thatcher sample his favourite Saumagen when he entertained the Iron Lady.
