The Former Mayor of Würselen .... Martin Schultz

Postby miner » Mon May 15, 2017 12:51 am

Well, Martin Schultz must be crying in his Pils tonight after his SPD party's unexpected crushing defeat in the NordRhein Westfalen election today. He seems to now have almost zero chance of being the German Chancellor after the September General Election.

It looks like we'll have Mrs Merkel back as Chancellor. Whilst since Brexit she's become more disliked by the UK, she's a much better person to be leading Germany - and effectively in charge of the EU's side of Brexit - than the former Eurocrat Schultz could ever be.

Well done, the CDU in winning the NRW Election!

I actually didn't mind him as Eurocrats go. He didn't have the same air of arrogance that some of the others have and he always came across as more reasonable than many of the others.
