A back-handed compliment

From the latest issue of Deutschland: Forum on politics, culture and business:

…the Germans are generally very, very friendly, they have not invaded a neighbouring country for 60 years, and they can even make you laugh! They are very similar to the Dutch.

Of course the writer of the article is Dutch, so that last bit is mean to be a real compliment. Really.

But if I was one of the German taxpayers who had funded this magazine I think I would be tempted to ask for my money back!
