Me thinks there trouble about in Deutschland

November 20, 2017

Now 2 months after the election in Deutschland and there isn't a government in situ has Frau Merkel blown her popularity. The reason,well Brexit and the Right Wing Party has a toe hold in Berlin , yes the Greens are not playing by her rules to go into power . There will be some of the German nation not wanting to fill the gap in the EU's finances after Brexit,we know that they pay the most to join the club ,well with 80 odd million and the richest country maybe they are fed up bankrolling the other 26 . About Brexit it looks like with the stupid amounts of cash that Junkers is demanding,the UK will walk away . My thoughts if any UK government cows down to silly demands from the EU and pays up were the money is needed to look after our own people,will be destroyed at an election. Whatever happens in Berlin keep watching the Brussels Broadcasting Corporation or now called Brexit Broadcasting Corporation ( bashing) for the use of ,now has anyone got a better idea like a mass "stop paying license fee " to make them remember who pays their wages ???????

Me thinks there trouble about in Deutschland

She's trying to form a Government from 4 very different political parties, her own CDU, the CSU, the FDP and The Greens. It's the only  combination possible to produce a majority Bundestag. Her main opponent, the SDP, won't  countenance a coalition with her. Energy and immigration are the two biggest sticking points. The Greens want a drastic reduction in Germany's coal power production, the FDP say it will cost too many jobs. They also can't agree on how many of the family nembers of the 1.2 million refugees she allowed in recently are to be allowed to join their kin already domiciled in Germany. The truth is her own party are beginning to lose faith in her despite her popularity amongst the electorate. She's not done yet though, I suspect she may well avoid a re-election but nothing's beyond the bounds of possibility. As for Brexit, it's time for the games to stop. Our biggest danger isn't the Barnier's and Tusker's of this world, it's not even Corbyn and his cronies, it's the 20-25 Tory pro European faction who are determined to put personal feelings before the will of the electorate. Foremost amongst them is Ken Clarke, a dinosaur politician well past his sell by date now! Merkel has no greater problems than Teresa May does really, she can always opt to form a minority Government and say sod the lot of you. In all of this I ask myself how long Teresa May will accept the backstabbing and disunity within her party. Given her age and how financially comfortable her and her husband are I wonder sometimes why she doesn't just call her MPs  together  and say, 'here's the deal, back me 100% or I will resign, if you want a Labour Government led by Comrades Corbyn and McDonnell to dictate our future, to sell us short on Brexit, to plunge us back into even bigger debts, carry on with your dirty dealings, I have enough on my plate fighting Labour and the EU, if I have to fight my own MPs then it's simply not worth the bother'. 'Back me or I go'.  That's what I would do in her position, I really would!! I can't abide disloyalty, even worse is disloyalty hidden under a veneer of 'doing the right thing'!!
