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

Well if its a very popular Linke proposal,

For a bleed of voter base it's enough if it is popular with the SPD's and the Greens' left wings and creates a rift with the more centrist government. For example, the new government wants to save too, and they want to delay the elimination of tuition fees (one of the local election themes) for one year.

Being a minority Government gives the SPD/Greens a cop-out on almost everything.

But that's a double-edged weapon: it makes you appear weak and vulnerable.
