Angela Merkel’s chancellorship has been an enormous disaster for Germany. She has ruined relations with the US and Brexit occurred under her watch, she caused nationalist movements to surge in Europe because she allowed the EU to be overrun with violent jihadis and thugs, and the German economy has been weak for years. She has cracked down hard on “hate speech” (usually criticism of German policy), and refuses honor her NATO treaty obligations.
Readers may recall a story from last year indicating that she apparently is even embarrassed by her country’s flag.
Now, her political career may finally be coming to an end after the AfD battered her party in the last set of elections and continued backlash from Germany’s citizens grows over Muslim immigration. I can only hope it’s true:
Speaking on BBC World at One, the German politician claimed clashes between Angela Merkel and German interior minister Horst Seehofer could result in a “new political situation” in Germany by the end of next week.
The Christian Democratic Union (CDU) politician said it was still unclear in Berlin what the essence of the disagreement between the Chancellor and Mr Seehofer was and that other members of the coalition had been left “in the blue”.
Mr Whittaker said: “We are in a serious situation because the question of the migration crisis evolved into a power question.
Asked what the German Chancellor and her interior minister are clashing over, he replied: “We don’t know really. There is a master plan to solve the migration crisis, which consists of 63 ideas of Horst Seehofer.
“We don’t know that concept yet, so we are a bit in the blue.
“This must have to do with the coming election in Bavaria because it is vital for the Conservatives to win an overall majority because that’s why they have a national importance.
