It Doesn’t Matter Who Replaces Merkel. Germany Is Broken.

Thank you, Merkel.

Quote:
The stability (and even monotony) associated with German politics under Ms. Merkel appears to be coming to an end. Her looming retirement marks a deepening crisis of the German political system that threatens not just the future of the country, but of the European Union.

Explanations for this shake-up often begin and end with Ms. Merkel. Her handling of the so-called refugee crisis and her downbeat, aloof style alienated large chunks of the electorate. The gradual weakening of the centrist parties has in turn fed polarization and the fragmentation of the electorate.

Time to pack it in and see if the Hapsburgs will take you back?

RE: It Doesn’t Matter Who Replaces Merkel. Germany Is Broken.

von der Leyen's appointment as Commission President will be a stabilizing glue that keeps the EU institutions in firm control of the Union. I think her statement forgoing a more federalized EU is a olive branch to eastern europe and some southern european states who are wary of "encroaching" Brussels. I do think that the EU should remain united and strong when its become more and more apparent that strength is ever more important in the world. The UK will leave the EU is a much weaker state with a smaller voice of its own; the looming Strait of Hormuz crisis is a flagging symbol of the UK's lonely and waning status in the world. A stronger and more united EU is the only way Europe will continue to be a voice of reason in the world and a relevant and credible player in world politics. Long live Europe, may Russia and the EU one day unite against the US and China!

RE: It Doesn’t Matter Who Replaces Merkel. Germany Is Broken.

Alexei, Ursula von der Leyen is a pretty much inept politician only focussed on her own wellbeing. She really is her father's daughter in that regard. Mr. Albrecht, her father, was the CDU minister president of Lower Saxony. He was focussed so much on his own wellbeing, that he forgot two things:
a) to respect voters, and their will for autonomy*
b) that those voters, even if they are naturally inclined to conservatism, will vote for anybody else if they are ignored.

*there was a clause in Lower Saxony's constitution (demanded by the British occupation force) that a part of the country will have a referendum, a popular decision, on getting an own "Bundesland". That part was the firmest conservative, christian and market oriented part of Lower Saxony, the former Grandduchy of Oldenburg and the Free State of Frisia. With almost 90% the population chose indepedence and autonomy, but Albrecht was thinking that this might be the end of conservative control in lower saxony, so he decided to block this... [notably: this led to him loosing the election after...]

And vdLeyen is the same. She is inept, even in keeping support. She will be a weak commission president, and she will focus on keeping Merkel's support and furthering Green politics. A disaster.

Thanks for your thrust in EU and von der Leyen .

But beside that. Nothing against your Russian Patriotism .
But beside that Russia is the most Asian Country (beside Turkey)
that is in Europe, is the most Problem for an alliance not
Germany or England , but Countries like Estonia , Poland
and Romania who the last 30 Years go on Distance to Moskow
and into Nato .

@ Adder what are you tallking .
Wasn t Ernst Albrecht Minister President fort 14 Years .
Sounds not that he was disliked by 90% , more liked by 51 %

And Ursula von der Leyen seems also respected by
Presidents like Macron . Her vote says enough.

I won't quote Dieter Nuhr here, but you would deserve that.

Albrecht ignored the popular vote on the indepedence of Oldenburg and Frisia. Of course he WAS liked by the eastern part.
Structure change in Lower Saxony under his regime was combatted in the following way: industrial work places in Oldenburg and Frisia are under pressure or industries there waning (textils, ship yards), so the money the government got was directed solely into the area around Hannover and Wolfsburg. Not that his precedessors or the following MPs were any better...
