Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Connected: there was another round of Celebrity Deathmatch between Merkel and Schröder. Schröder opined that Merkel allows herself to be led by her ex-living-under-communism emotions in her policy towards Russia, which is misguided. CDU leaders opined Schröder is just envious at the access Merkel has...

I say a pox on both houses. Methinks Schröder rightly analysed a bad policy towards Russia, albeit his cynical 'realpolitik' wasn't all that deeply thought-through either. But the motivation he analyses is, I think, entirely wrong, and a thinly veiled macho mysogynist attack ('emotional unstable women'). The CDU reply doesn't need commentary.
