    I think it's like a Blockwahl.
  3. A person who is expected to watch for un-party like behaviour from people in their block. A very low ranking Nazi functionary.

    Thank you for that. Quite the same as those here reporting non-politically correct speech.

  5. I also live in Germany (in deepest, darkest, Niederbayern) and I agree completely with your comment.
    With my German friends who, to a man, are resolutely opposed to the uncontrolled influx of migrants, are adopting a "better the Devil you know" attitude" re Fr Merkel.

  6. Also seen on German TV, extra 3 to be specific, which is a comedy and satire programme. They were doing some serious p1ss taking out of the SPD, amongst other things were 2 photos of senior SPD politicians. In the first one Schulz and some of his entourage were sitting in a coach all looking like they were on the way to their own funerals. In the second one the unlucky candidate and former Ministerpräsident of Schleswig Holstein was standing next to Ralf Stegner, the SPD boss in Schleswig. This is how he always looks, even when he's smiling. At this rate Angie will win even if she's dead.[​IMG]
  7. Angela is the hair shirt they wear. There remains a collective conscience that demands penance. Unfortunately her penance affects us all as Islam demand preeminence as the 'only' religion.

    Their recognition of their birth rate problem has blinded them to the eager wombs they are allowing in. Islam is quite happy to breed its way to success.

  8. Well the news coming in now is that Armin Laschet (CDU) has won the election in NRW and Hannelore Kraft is history. A couple of months ago Martin Schulz declared the election in NRW to he a landmark and indicator of things to come in the Federal elections in September. So the SPD has lost 3 Land elections in a row in the space of a few months. Martin maybe you should have stayed in Brussels, things don't look good for you. Bad news follows.
  9. NRW has voted to swap the SPD for the CDU.

    Fr Merkel is said to be fairly happy.
  10. Ayyip Erdogan said that the Turks in Germany should all have 5 children, thereby ultimately breeding their way to domination. However the Turkish women here may well have other ideas and try to emulate western women, ie career first, children later and then only one or two.

  11. The Greens have changed into a conservative party with a eco-conscience...that is generaly elected by more well of. So CDU and Greens should get on like a house on fire...

  13. The SPD in North Rhine-Westphalia made an excellent effort at appearing as clueless as humanly possible - this is one of their posters for the election, the caption reads (rough translation): NRWe Grafters. Strong: Lowest unemployment rate since 1993.

  14. SPD have had the worst result in NRW ever.

    Kraft has fallen on her sword and Mr Schulz is in big trouble.
    The CDU are doing fairly well for a party led by Erich Hoenecker in a dress, or was she supposed to be Adolph and Cruella D'Ville's love child?
  15. As is our very own Theresa Mau
