Desperate to avoid an election SPD leadership reverses itself and talks to Merkel about propping her up as Chancellor
Days after the collapse of the coalition talks in Berlin German Chancellor Angela Merkel has found a not-so-unlikely saviour in the form of the leadership of the SPD, Germany’s biggest ‘opposition’ party and her partner in the outgoing coalition.
After the SPD’s dismal showing in the September parliamentary elections – when the SPD’s share of the vote was a paltry 20.5% – the SPD’s leadership led by the party’s leader Martin Schulz vowed that the SPD would not enter into any further coalition with Angela Merkel.
The idea was that the SDP, having been badly damaged by its all-too-close association with Merkel in two coalition governments, urgently needed to distance itself from Merkel so that it could start to reconnect with its increasingly angry and alienated working class base.
In addition SPD leader Martin Schulz said it would be wrong for the SPD to forge a new coalition with Merkel after the SPD’s previous coalition with Merkel was electorally hammered by German voters in the September election.
That was a clear and straightforward position, easily understandable by the SPD’s membership and electoral base, and one which makes total political sense.
However following the collapse of the talks between Merkel and the FDP and the Greens to form a so-called ‘Jamaica coalition’ the SPD at the insistence of President Steinmeier (previously one of the SPD’s most senior leaders) reversed itself. Following a tense eight hour discussion on Thursday it agreed to open talks with Merkel to look for ways to support her government. There is now even some talk of the SPD going into coalition with her again.
What lies behind this truly extraordinary reversal?
The SPD has come under extreme pressure from the German political establishment to save Merkel. This is because of fears that a new election would result in a further increase in support for the anti-establishment AfD.
This appears to be a prospect that Germany’s political establishment finds too horrible to contemplate, so once it became clear that negotiations to form a ‘Jamaica coalition’ were going nowhere the SPD came under intense pressure to reverse its stance so as to prevent the threatened election from taking place.
Over and above this, there is also a measure of truth in the frequent claim that the entire political ethos of postwar Germany is one which requires political parties to look for compromises. A conflict between parties which results in fresh elections may be a commonplace in many European countries. In postwar Germany it has never happened previously, and the German business community in particular was alarmed by it, and made known its wish that it be resolved quickly without new elections being called.
However the SPD was not just strong-armed by the German political establishment into reversing its position. On the contrary it is clear that this was also the urgent wish of most of its most senior leaders.
The cause of the alarm is a series of opinion polls which show that since the September election Merkel’s popularity and that of the two big establishment parties – the CDU/CSU bloc and the SPD – is continuing to crash.
Not only is Merkel’s own popularity draining away, but the opinion polls suggest that in the event of a new election the CDU’s/CSU’s support might easily fall below 30% (in the September election it was 33%) whilst the SPD’s support might fall below 20%.
This seems to have spooked many senior SPD officials and MPs, who terrified of losing their seats in the Bundestag pressed for talks with Merkel to prevent an election from taking place.
The fact that the SPD is making decisions based on such calculations shows why it is going to go on losing support.
When British Prime Minister Theresa May called an election in April this year there was also pressure on Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to block the election. The reasoning was that if the election happened Theresa May would triumph and Labour would be crushed.
Corbyn spurned these cowardly counsels and instead welcomed the election. For that however he came under strong criticism from precisely the same sort of people in Britain’s Labour Party as those in Germany’s SPD who are anxious to avoid an election in Germany now. See for example this extraordinary article by the Guardian’s Polly Toynbee, blasting Corbyn for his ‘ineptitude’ in agreeing to an election which would result in ‘catastrophe’ for his party.
In the event and against all expectations an energetic and self-confident Corbyn stormed if not to victory then to a very close second place, increasing the Labour Party’s share of the vote from 30% to 40%, and depriving Theresa May of her majority.
The events of the last week show that Germany’s SPD has no equivalent to Jeremy Corbyn.
On the contrary it has become as assimilated into Germany’s neoliberal political establishment as is Angela Merkel and her CDU/CSU. In truth it is politically speaking Germany’s neoliberal establishment along with Angela Merkel and her CDU/CSU.
Given that it is precisely that neoliberal establishment that German voters are now rejecting that all but guarantees that the SPD will continue to lose support, and by talking about propping up Merkel the SPD is simply giving its working class base further reason to desert it.
It is still not a fully foregone conclusion that the SPD’s will forge an arrangement with Merkel. The party’s grassroots – closer to German voters and more loyal to the party’s traditions than its leadership – are believed to be unhappy and will have a vote over whatever arrangement is finally agreed. In a sign of the unease the party’s youth wing has already said that it will expect the talks with Merkel to be broken off if there is no agreement by Christmas.
Assuming an agreement is however reached, it should be clear that it will be a case of trading short-term ‘stability’ for long-term crisis.
Angela Merkel is quite simply the wrong person to continue to be German Chancellor.
This has been my consistent view ever since I first expressed it back in 2014. More to the point, it is a view which is now starting to become mainstream.
Consider for example this article by Roger Boyes in the London Times, with its comments like these
Germans have become too comfortable with the rule of Angela Merkel, so cosy in their governing compact, so gemütlich that they failed to recognise they have a Merkel problem. For the past 12 years the chancellor has ducked big choices about Germany’s role in the world, about the need for change, and now the country is paying the price……
The great hope that accompanied the election of Merkel in 2005 was that she would usher Germany into the modern world in a non-threatening, non-Thatcherite way. Instead, without a guiding idea, her various coalition governments have been about crisis management: the global financial breakdown, the eurozone in disarray, Greece hurtling towards bankruptcy, an increasingly aggressive Vladimir Putin, the flood of refugees from apparently insoluble wars. She was never under-employed but along the way she lost the plot.
Since her political convictions were never laid out clearly, she felt free to steal the political clothes of her various coalition partners, the FreeDemocrats and the Social Democrats, claiming them as her own. She even dressed herself up as a Green by suddenly renouncing nuclear power after the Fukushima accident in 2011, thus keeping options openfor a future alliance with the party.
The corrosive effect of leadership without a compass has become clear over the past weeks. Neither the Free Democrats nor the Social Democrats trust her as a partner; they both bled votes after being in coalition with her. All parties are feuding furiously with each other, making a nonsense of the chancellor’s claim to be a consensus politician. Her Bavarian sister party, the Christian Social Union is alarmed by her drift leftwards and by her misjudgment in opening up Germany’s borders to a million migrants and refugees. The CSU faces a regional election next year. In public it swears loyalty to Merkel; in private it knows that the association with Merkel is likely to be toxic, driving even more voters towards the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD).
Apart from the (inevitable) reference to the “increasingly aggressive Vladimir Putin” there is not a word here with which I disagree.
More to the point, as the draining away of Merkel’s popularity shows, this is also increasingly becoming the view of Germany voters.
Propping up an increasingly unpopular Chancellor who is now obviously past her sell-by date is a certain recipe for trouble, and is not politically speaking sustainable.
As I said in my discussion of the state of Germany which I wrote just before the election, what Germany needs is not more of the same – which is all it is ever going to get from Merkel – but strong and purposeful leadership, which can start to address Germany’s mounting problems.
These are likely to become increasingly apparent within the next few years or even months, as evidence mounts that the German economy is dangerously overheating.
The German people sense this, which is why in September’s election Merkel’s coalition lost so much support.
Presenting the German people with the same coalition just weeks after that coalition lost so much support in the September election is in political and electoral terms pure folly. Martin Schultz for once was saying it right when he said just a week ago that it would be totally the wrong thing to do
The mere fact that this folly is even being discussed is a sign of something else. For the first time since the establishment of the Bundesrepublik Germany’s political class is running scared of Germany’s voters. Instead of calling an election – the standard way to resolve a political crisis in a parliamentary democracy – Germany’s political class is instead engaging in a shabby stitch-up because it is frightened of how Germany’s voters might vote in an election.
That of course is not something which is unknown in other countries. In Germany however it is something new. That means that in German political terms an important line has been crossed.
Running scared in that way will of course cede the position of being the only true opposition parties in the Bundestag to the AfD and to the leftist Die Linke. Inevitably that will also cede the political initiative to them, ensuring that their support will continue to increase. It speaks volumes about the state of German politics and about the weakness of Germany’s traditional ‘establishment’ parties that the only party in the Bundestag which had the courage and understanding of the situation to call on Merkel to resign once the ‘Jamaica coalition’ talks collapsed was the AfD.
If a stitch-up is put together to allow Merkel to remain Chancellor, it will start to fray very quickly.
Merkel’s authority is gone, and so very quickly will what is left of her popularity, especially if predictions of a looming crisis in the economy come true.
Meanwhile the SPD will continue to lose support as it props up the unpopular government of a discredited and unwanted Chancellor.
Sooner or later the whole thing will fall apart, but in a much messier and more dangerous way than would be the case if an election were called now.
This however is the dismal scenario Germany’s political class is presenting to the German people.
The facts are mostly true, but the conclusion of this article is not neutral or even a bit realistic, if you know german politicans. It is just an article against Merkel, nothing more, nothing less.
florian…ihr seits noch immer besetzt.du bist der sklave der usa,england und zionisten.dumm,dümmer deutschland.
Ja und die “einsame Community” die in diesen Internetforen rumhängt und von der großen und bösen Weltverschwörung der Zionisten und blablabla redet, kennt als einzige die Wahrheit! Tschuldigung, aber wann ist man kein “Sklave”? Von irgendwas ist man immer abhängig. Auch Putin, Assad und Co. aber das ist ja sicher egal, den die sind ja keine Zionisten! Wenn einer was böses will sind es die Zionisten, weil wenn die böse sind muss der Rest ja gut sein, immerhin ist die Welt schwarz, weiß. Also versteh mich nicht falsch, aber so sehr wie sich die Leute hier dieses Zionisten deep state Zeugs ausmalen wäre ein Forum welches eben jene Zionisten anprangert auch von den Zionisten entdeckt bzw. gelenkt. Sind wir also alle nur Verschwörer in einer Verschwörungstheorie?

Agreed. Just some propaganda articles that Southfront is republishing from other shitty sources. Anti-Merkel drivel, hoping to present her as “on the way out”.
I don’t like her but everyone with a couple of brain cells can tell she will most likely remain in control.
Germany is an occupied country, and the German’s will do exactly as they are told by the U$.
Solomon, that strange order you’re smelling is………..you.
i see, germany is still fighting for nordstream2. against brussel and washington. germany does not accept american pressure to elevate the military budget, does not accept american statement to iranian atom deal. etc., etc. you puffs empty phrases only.
Solomon, I see you’re having a spasm of lucidity, and engaging in civil discourse. Germany is still, by the treaty ending WW 2, an occupied country. Hopefully, German will have the courage to stand against the Empire, but I’ve seen no evidence of that to date. Germany may back up what they say about Iran, Nordstream 2, etc, but only time will tell.
Another thing you should consider is that mine is longer, thicker, and harder than yours.
Solomon Krupacek “Will you admit the Talmud, Torah and Kabala are all wrong and in sin, a great sin against god, when they say that god did not create Jews and non Jews as equals in the eyes of god and that Goyims are equal to Jews in the eyes of god and Jews are not superior genetically, spiritually, not chosen and not better then Goyims in any way in gods eyes? and that all men are brothers in the eyes of god?? What is anti Jewish or anti Semitic about these statements???? Please explain it to us all?’”
Solomon seldom replies. His mission is to agitate people like you, and I, and cause us to think more deeply (something like that).
When you see Zio trolls like this guy just drop this quote on them, it exposes and discredits them immediately. Just imagine what the superior chosen master Jewish race thinks of your Cherokee heritage.

I’ve been reading the numerous comments that you’ve posted, and I’ve come to the conclusion that you, and I have a very similar world view. Obviously, we express our opinions differently, and I’m not as obsessed with “slavery” as you appear to be. However, I do agree that we have all become slaves of Jewish economics, and that our people have suffered horribly as a result. As a retired infantry officer, and a multi tour Vietnam veteran I deeply sympathize with the plight of all veterans who are victims of the Jewish for profit military machine.
The only real problem I have with your position is that you constantly allude to the Confederate States of America as a Jewish construct. My heritage, my knowledge of the War of Secession, and that period in history does not allow me to accept your views on this particular subject. I do agree that the war was precipitated by Jewish interests in an effort to rape the South to cover their losses in the Panic of 1858. I also agree that the Jews profited handsomely off of the war even though their profits seriously suffered when Lincoln refused to borrow money from the Jewish banking cartel to finance the war. An act that cost Lincoln his life.
Both the Anglo side of my family, and the native American (Cherokee) side of my family owned slaves, and fought for the Confederacy. By around 1850 my Anglo ancestors realized that slaves were obsolete agricultural equipment, and they were trying to rid themselves of the expense. I have the family letters related to this subject. I also have the family letters related to the disappearance of certain Carpet Baggers who attempted to seize our property for “back taxes”. It seems that our newly freed men of color didn’t want to lose their home, and disposed of these creatures; never to be seen again. It was a complex time, John, and while the Jew most certainly instigated the war I don’t, and will never view the Confederacy as an extension of Jewish economic hegemony.
The Confederate States of America: None ever rose with more noble a purpose nor fell more free of shame.
I constantly allude to the racist supremacist Jewish global slave confederate empire as a Jewish construct because this is what it was. Not for the average southerner in the 1800s, who had no idea like much of America today. Lincoln was southerner who had to leave because his farm could not compete with the subsidy of slave labor for Jewish plantations. It was Jews who ran and owned the south its entire economy government etc. Unfortunately for your relatives they were used and died for racist supremacist Jews who hated them as well as all Goyims Racist Jews think of them, you and me as stupid Goyim subhuman animal beasts. Most goyim especially those in what use to be the West now are the conquered states of the racist supremacist Jewish global slave confederate empire are completely brainwashed by the racist Jewish owned media. You seem to just not understand it and until you do you will never be free and will most probably be wiped out by racist Jews. If you are interested I can give you all the proof you need which you can verify, for yourself. Racist supremacist Jews hate historical facts and ban them. Don’t forget Lincoln is the most hated figure in human history after Jesus by racist supremacist Jews. Any white person who defends the confederacy is a stupid, useful, animal, beast, stooge, patsy for taking the wrap for the Jewish run slave trade as racist supremacist Jews say, because the South economically and politically, the slave trade, banks financial system, courts, military, etc. the government, was totally run by racist supremacist Jews as the entire USSA now is. today.https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/12392db1db04b55b084d87cd907e2e19a7e25e74adf7ff532c7a676d87de65da.png Jews were so influential in those colonies that slave auctions scheduled to take place on Jewish holidays often were postponed, according to Marc Lee Raphael, a professor of Judaic studies at the College of William & Mary. http://www.jta.org/2013/12/26/news-opinion/world/dutch-rabbi-confronts-jews-with-ancestors-complicity-in-slavery Judah Philip Benjamin who served as the Attorney General, Secretary of War, and Secretary of State for the Confederacy.

John, we agree on many subjects, and disagree on others; that’s life. However, we do seem to share a common enemy. You’re a radical, John, and somewhat irritating, but if we go to the trenches I would be honored to have you stand with me.
Well in times of oppression and universal lies telling the truth is a radical act. It sounds like we are on the same side against Jewish racism, supremacism and oppression of the Goyim. It is not always easy to understand most of what we grew up to believe in a racist Jewish owned and controlled society is just lies. It’s not your fault you were taught lies as a child, I was too but I overcame them which is the start of the journey to freedom when racist, supremacist Jews can’t tell you who you are. As for areas you think we disagree, well I am not perfect I can make mistakes, I am not a member of the master, chosen, superior Jewish race, who claim to be man gods who can do no wrong, so show me some evidence and maybe I will agree with you.
John, everything you say could well be true, but even if true I would have to accept it. I’m 71 years old, a dedicated son of the old South, and I have no interest in changing. Besides, we both know that one man’s lie is another man’s truth, and more often than not truth is just a matter perspective. Stay strong, John, we need me like you.

Part 2 In 1937, another book appeared in Germany called Jewish-Run Concentration Camps in the Soviet Union, which revealed that Communist Jews were the commandants of 11 out of the 12 main Gulags. 11 of the 12 Gulag extermination camp commanders were Jews.

Officials have denied the connection for years.
Part 4 The unclassified US Army memo, obtained by the online magazine Wired.com, unequivocally states that a burn pit at one of the biggest US military bases in Afghanistan threatens the base’s troops and staff with “long-term adverse health conditions.” The burn pit at Bagram Airfield produces large quantities of dust and burnt waste, which are most likely to impact veterans’ health for the rest of their lives, the memo continues. Breathing in the air at the base, veterans risk acquiring any of the following: “reduced lung function or exacerbated chronic bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, atherosclerosis, or other cardiopulmonary diseases.” The assessment is built on an eight-year study of weekly air samples taken at the base. The memo says air concentration of Particulate Matter 10 and Particulate Matter 2.5 (10 and 2.5 being the diameter of matter in micrometers) were twice and three times the maximum permitted standards, respectively.
Part 5 To soldiers, burning anything from broken furniture to human waste in the best of US practice, the hazard comes under a more common name: dust. The air is heavy with it and its “running mate” – the heavy, acrid smell of grilled trash. The memo is dated April 2011, when the affected population on the base scaled up to “40,000 Service Members and contractors.” Since 2003, when the research was launched, Bagram Airfield has been a point of transit for hundreds of thousands of troops. Millions more have served at other Afghan bases and in Iraq, near similar burn pits. “It’s good to see someone in the military is acknowledging there are going to be long-term problems with burn pits, but it’s disturbing that this memo is more than a year old and it doesn’t seem like the military has done anything about it,” Tom Tarantino, deputy policy director of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America advocacy group, told Wired.com.
Part 6 But Pentagon seems to think Bagram’s dust is just on soldiers’ shoes. In 2004, a fact sheet issued by Pentagon’s deployment health library declared that the high particulate matter in the air of the base “should not cause any long-term health effects.” In 2010, their epidemiological study found that upon returning home, Bagram veterans would be as healthy “as, those who had never deployed.” Still, thousands of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans have suffered chest pains, asthma and migraines they associate with service. Some try to sue their military contractors for exposing them to unhealthy conditions, but as official research failed to prove their charges, damages were scarcely paid. Now, with the leaked Bagram Airfield memo, at least some may hope for compensation.

A CDU-CSU-SPD Coalition gives AFD the first rank as opposition leader , it will be a slow but cruel destruction of both parties , CDU/CSU and SPD in the future. What is leftover from the SPD-voter , bluecollar-workers etc will go to AFD and some oldschoolcommies will go to “Die Linke”. We have a repetition of 1931.
new elections were better. afd is splitted, would not get more then 10%, fdp would fall out. the result would be better for germany.
Seems the decision to give glyphosate a 5 year extension is set to poison the renewed relationship between CDU/CSU and SPD from the start. Would be so ironic if Angela’s stance on glyphosate may well prove terminal to her reign. Finally something good from that poison it even may eliminate such politicians.
