I confess to finding German politics to be a little inscrutable these days. US politics of course have a certain bizarre affect this year but Germans? Upset enough to seriously roil the system? Who knew that they were directly emotional about such matters?
Merkel's father took his family to live in the GDR, leaving the safety of West Germany? Say what? Were there many who did this kind of counter-intuitive flight to the Warsaw Pact countries?
Is it the case that the German electorate is going to dump Merkel in unhappiness over her migrant policy and the bribe paid by the EU?
Perhaps some of our German committeemen will explain this to us? pl
