By excluding a large portion of its own voters, European occupation governments are falling to pieces and shattering voters in all directions in search of a politically correct solution that will allow them the moral high ground and also that will save their nations. However by excluding the conservative right and stereotyping them as far right, they are ignoring the only solution open to them. Germany, France, Netherlands and even the UK could have strong stable governments overnight if they dropped the politically correct charade of “holier than than thou” politics.
Merkel could suggest a cooling-off period for the four parties – her CDU and their Bavarian allies the CSU, the Greens and the FDP – that have been struggling to form a coalition for more than a month, before inviting them back for a new round of talks.
Yet their differences over immigration, climate and Europe seem irreconcilable. The greatest rift was between the FDP and the Greens, according to the CDU’s Jens Spahn, who told ZDF TV that negotiations between the CDU-CSU and FDP “would have been finished in two weeks”.
“We are facing a situation which [we] did not face in the Federal Republic of Germany for almost 70 years,” Steinmeier said.
Steinmeier said that he will be holding talks with the leaders of all parties involved in the discussions, along with German institutions. He also stressed that all parties have a responsibility to try to form a government in the near future.The Free Democratic Party (FDP) walked out of marathon talks shortly before midnight on Sunday, with its leader, Christian Lindner, saying there was “no common basis of trust” between the FDP, German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s center-right CDU party, and the Greens. He said it was “better not to govern than to govern badly.”
The walkout effectively led to the breakdown of the coalition talks and a potential attempt to form a majority government.
Explaining the motives behind its walkout, the FDP pointed to what it sees as a lack of compromise from other parties on key issues including tax cuts, curbing red tape and education policy, according to the party’s negotiator, Joachim Stamp.
The current major partner of Merkel’s CDU, the Social Democratic Party (SPD), had earlier signaled it would not engage in another grand coalition. On Monday, SPD leader Martin Schuls reiterated the decison.
Schulz also said that German voters, whom he referred to as “the sovereign,” should be given the chance to “reassess what is going on” following the failed talks. He added that his party is not afraid of new elections, should they take place.
