Between a rock and a hard place, obviously. I wish her the best in her management of the euro crisis, really, because although I disagree in the strongest possible terms with the focus on austerity, she has good intentions and is at least on the right side of things. On domestic affairs I don't wish her the best, as I believe Germany would be better off with a more explicitly pro-worker, pro-wage and pro-growth government, but that is up to Germans to decide.

Still one of the best European leaders, IMO. Unchanged.

Either FDP, Linke or Pirates. Sound weird? Wink

FDP or Linke, whoever seems to be closest to 5%. Best and only way to kill Kraft's red-green. I'm in an obstructionist mood in NRW.

If I decided to take things seriously and voted my political conscience: Pirates

Then you must vote Linke. They are closest to 5% (but I guess in the end will get less than that). The FDP should be in, Barney Lindner should follow Kubicki's example. The Pirates might actually not get that much support in NRW, because of their utopic free of charge public transport proposal. Those voters might stay with the SPD and Greens instead, with the Pirates topping out at 7%.

A truly despicable person, and one of the leaders of modern times who has done the most harm to the European people.

Thatcher, but I like both a lot.

Is it excessive to hold a politician's feet to the fire for giving his base the run around at every turn?
