Bundestagswahl 26th of September 2021

125 posts in this topic

We have a strange situation now, Mr Scholz is the probable or designated Bundeskanzler Ms Merkel is the Geschaeftsfuehrende (caretaker) Bundeskanzlerin, so there are sort of two people in charge. Soon Mrs Merkel shall be gone, but she will have some staff including TWO drivers!

 

Feels a bit strange, I lived eleven years under Thatcher and sixteen under Merkel, most of my adult life - a male head of government!

I wouldn't begrudge Mutti a couple of drivers. I dare say she has worked as much as most of us in 32 years in those 16 she served. She has been genuinely dedicated to the well-being of this country. I'll deffo miss her but she deserves some time to herself.

I'm pretty sure Angela Merkel's drivers will also be her bodyguards - I certainly wouldn't begrudge her this security after her time in office.

Boring is good.

 

Mrs Merkel is lying low, she does not even want to be Ehrenvorsitzende, honorary chair of the CDU.

 

ACAB, Mrs Baerbock the foreign minister was pictured in a coat resembling a bathrobe. Fortunately Web.de has an article going into detail about her dress choices😉

 

Meantime two other power ministries (defence and inland) are in female hands, very good I think.

Well, Von der Leyen as Minister of Defense was a disaster: A400M, Mali, Gorch Fock, nepotism.Just a few examples. In other countries you have to leave, but she is buddies with Mutti. That saved her.
