Merkel to win in Germany?

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by Auld-Yin, May 10, 2017.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have now changed tack slightly and hope that she does get in.
    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.

  2. There's been a lot of murders by our new guests recently. The other day, a helper from the DRK (German Red Cross), was stabbed to death whilst giving advice and help to a Syrian. Last week, it was reported that a Afghan killed a five year old girl and seriously injured her mother.....Naturally, this has hardly made an news.

    In Duisburg, the Roma are totally feral. A 14 year old cat was caught and stoned to death, after they had "played" with it. Too many incidents to list and it's not going away.

  3. Harry,

    The parlimentary term in Germany is 4 years.

    Still as you say hopefully her open-door immigration policy will come back to bite her hard on the arrse.

  5. I can't see that being popular with the new Germans, all these doctors, scientists and engineers might get uppity

    Do the refugees get a vote before they are granted citizenship?
     
  7. Lack of citizenship made them behave so far, so what's voting got to do with it

    I was asking whether you believed they had a vote without citizenship. It's a simple binary question.
     
  9. And the relevance is ?

    You tell me. It was your point.
     
  11. 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.

  13. 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.

    Unemployment - Youth unemployment rate - OECD Data

    What a price to pay to keep the Euro together.
    Something has got to give somewhere, just where?
     
  14. 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.

  15. 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.
