Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I realise "traitor" is a strong word, especially with the sig I use. But I think it fits the situation exactly, as well as my narrative above the fold -- say, compare when Müntefering called Oskar Lafontaine a traitor.

There is an interesting account of behind-the-scenes actions yesterday in sueddeutsche.

  • Apparently, the four attempted to woo more SPD MPs, but failed -- even party right-wing people were outraged.

  • The second and third conscientous objector had strong contact to Ypsilanti's predecessor as party leader (the guy even hired bodyguards for the event when the four stood before the media yesterday), but that man denies any contact to Walter for a long time.

  • The four did tell Ypsilanti in advance, by phone, but rejected her last-ditch appeal for a talk.
