Scrapbook for November 2018

13.11.2018 – Good idea, Angela!

The Interior Minister and leader of the CSU in Germany, Horst Seehofer, announced on Monday 12 November that he would like to possibly think about maybe resigning as leader of his embattled party sometime soon perhaps. He would like to stay on as Interior Minister, though. Probably – or even perhaps most likely.

In this he is following the wise example of his boss, Chancellor Angela Merkel, who decided, with a tad more decisiveness admittedly (but only a tad), that she at some point later in this year may perhaps possibly not stand as leader of her party – but continue as Chancellor, of course. Until the twelfth of never, it seems, which is indeed a long, long time. For both of them. And us.

Remember: Nothing.Ever.Changes in German politics.
