Merkel to win in Germany?

Then she will have the next 5 years in office to realise what she has done to her country, and wonder where the dosh is going to come from to pay for all the gast non-arbeiters.
Not to forget dealing with the inevitable internal strife as well.
Crack on Mutti.
Merkel will get in, and will continue to lead.

Germany seems to...
a) have got used to the hair shirt their Nazi past bequeathed them, and,
b) have decided that a damned good ongoing thrashing from a severe Dominatrix is just what Herr Doctor ordered.

She has an agenda obviously nurtured throughout her life, and now is in a position where it is being carried out.

Mistakes??!! Indeed there will be broken eggs, when making an omelette these are part and parcel of the process.

A rape or two here and there, a little extra cost, nothing compared to what the Russians did at the end of the war. The Muslims and Nazis got on in the past why not again.

Merkel has got her electorate pretty much where she wants them, the Germans like a dominant leader and in her they have that.

Will her policies work...history will tell, and she isn’t worried what her children will be left with...she hasn’t got any.
 
Should be a very interesting year, judging by what has happened so far in the rest of Europe (and here).
Calais is rumbling onwards and upwards again, Macron has already had 3 ministers resign, the Italians have just bailed out 2 x banks and youth unemployment has never been higher in the EU.

What a price to pay to keep the Euro together.
Something has got to give somewhere, just where?

Not quite true. Spain youth unemployment has dropped from 46% just 2 years ago to 39% in April this year.
France has dropped from 24.9% in the middle of last year to 21.7% in April this year. Italy has gone down from 39.7% in October last year to 34% in April this year, Germany from 7.1% to in October to 6.8% in April this year, UK is pretty static but has risen from 11.9% to 12.3% this year to April.
Even youth unemployment in Greece has fallen this year although it had a pretty high base to start with.
So, as said, not quite true.

Not my figures, those of the OECD though.
Even so, one in 5 in France, one in 3 in Italy and Spain slightly better (ish) is still far too high a price to pay to keep the Euro project going and, surprise surprise, less than 1 in ten kids in Germany are unemployed.
Not to mention keeping the Credit Agricole Bank in France and certain others in Germany from going tits up over their involvement in financial matters pertaining to Greece.
There is going to be a very vocal and angry generation out there, and from what is obviously apparent on alleged media today, the message appears to be that who shouts the loudest gets the most attention.
Prepare for some very loud shouting from some quarters in the next couple of years.

Got a link for that as Statista tells us something else (and obviously harry used a different source).

Here's the Statista link, their figures are different.

Germany's percentage, is easily manipulated and is done regularly. Put the unemployed onto courses run by private companies etc and voila, the rate goes down, as they are not unemployed, but rather, under training.
 
Trading Economics




Obviously there are more Ministry of Guesswork units around than first realised.
One thing that strikes me is the way that the Trading Economics graph for Germany shows no changes when other sources say something else, makes you wonder how much of their figures are "projections".

But "youth unemployment" is also a bit of a side issue, you get lots of nice figures but it doesn't tell the whole story.

Look at this one, the long-term unemployed in the EU

Unemployment - Long-term unemployment rate - OECD Data

As per examples, Spain may have an umemployment rate of around 18% but when over half of those have been on the rock and roll for at least a year then there is a fundamental problem.
 
Slight thread resurrection:

As of today Merkel has admitted that she's unable to form a government.

Looks like it may be back to the polls for Germany.

Be interesting to see how that turns out

Going by what everyone has been saying on TV, going to the polls is about the last option, but cannot be dismissed.
 
If anybody does not feel that Merkel’s recent decisions over immigration into Germany has been a major factor in her decline in popularity, then they are disregarding why, just as an example, Britain voted to leave the EU.

Unrestricted inflow of those unfamiliar or foreign who may, or have, and are destabilising public order in any way, are considered a threat by the majority of native inhabitants of any area, range, country or territory.

Basic human/animal nature and survival instincts.

Political correctness, cultural inclusiveness, and multiculturalism are recent developments, their merits aside.

We are the products of millennia in human genetic development specifically aimed at survival, and it it not easily overturned by recent ideals.

Just a thought on her, and our present situation.
