The downfall of schulz, merkel and the spd – a commentary
It was almost forgotten that we have been without a government since september 2017. Certainly no one missed it and lo and behold: the country worked anyway. Now, after four months and two run-ups, the formation of the government should be completed. It must be acknowledged without envy that some less progressive countries are getting their act together faster. The cdu/csu, spd, grune and fdp were much quicker to reach agreement on the increase in the diats in december 2017. But bygones be bygones.
