Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is the place to insert another bit of info I came across over the past few days.

DDR-idolising Christel Wenger, the communist on a lower place on the Left Party list in Lower Saxony, made it into the regional parliament only due to the unexpected high success.

But this inspired some opponents in another way. As the Left Party jumped in Hamburg polls, on German webboards and blogs, a list spread with the communists on the Hamburg Left Party lists.

The twist is that Hamburg voted in a new election system. People vote for party lists and can specify five candidates, thus over-ruling the party lists...

*Lunatic*, n.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
