With a lot of their new voters being former SPD voters apparently. Oh well. I suppose the NDSAP were socialists too. The hint is in the title, although lefties never liked to acknowledge this.
Was there any real difference between the National Socialist Worker’s Party Germany and the Communist Party of the Soviet Union?

...and the day the BBC reports anything on the AFD, without appending the prefix 'Far Right' please let me know.

It's known as ' conditioning the battlespace'
 
Strangely enough it hasn't even been mentioned in the German media. That could be due to the fact that the Thuringen election running goat f**k is still in full swing or that the Germans wish the whole budget matter will quietly go away. It won't.
The Germans have always done very well out of the EU. Especially since the EURO, being a big exporting company it has kept the cost of their exports cheap in compared to the DM if it was still around, and enabled a big budget surplus every year. They are very reluctant to part with any more than they do already. That was previously the role assigned to the UK.

The commies killed more of their own people?

The Nazis killed more of other countries' people.
Thats debatable in Thats many of the people of the slave states of the Soviet Union killed by the commies would deny that they were ‘their own people’.

If you want a Sarajevo moment, that will be for the historians. The EU Problems:-
1. A combative Commission on red alert and desperate to kickstart the project again.
2. Germany soon to be without merkel, will be a lot less stabilising and Macron is a disaster.
3. Italy and Salvini is the Storm on the Horizon.
4. Euro and the monetary side is a ponzi scheme which only exists because the markets as yet don't want the project to fail and haven't gone after it soros style..
5. The Climate Change bandwagon has now reached the highway and its carrying nothing like enough passengers to prevent serious democratic problems, see holland.
6. Greece and the Balkans has being quiet of late, but always like to throw its twopenneth worth in.
7. Another Trump victory increases the stress.
8. Russia and its relationship with the EU is very dangerous. Because the EU has delusions that its a sovereign entity and who knows where those delusions will take them.
9. The Unknown is always the thing that ultimately sinks something so large. A US Democratic President might be cheered by the progressives, but will be nothing like the historical democrats. The world is changing very fast and the EU project is something out of its time.
When the EU finally 'internally combusts' the Irish will ask for a deal with us. We should be magnanamous. We should hold out our hand for a Union - no mention of the past, whats done is done. The new nation should be named from the current names of the two countries - shared pro-rata with us having first dibs as we are the more weatlhy.

We shall pick the first four letters.....Brit and the Irish can have the last three 'ish' There you go, now we are all British...that's what a proper united Ireland should look like.

Unfortunately, the new union flag is most likely to have to look like this:

Surprised me too, the tax business is down to that weasel scrote Jean Claude Juncker, who introduced in his time as Finanzminister. Nobody has bothered to change it since, quelle surprise.
Luxembourg is the second richest country in the world with an average GDP per capita of $79,593,91

Yep seems the Bunker man deffo had his way.
