Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I had to check op-eds in conservative media. No deeper conclusions yet:
  • FAZ: one excuse is the resurgence of Stuttgart 21 criticism (after the latest cost increase), another the CDU failure to mobilise own voters (although total turnout actually grew...): no drawing of consequences (instead some ridiculing of the Greens).
  • Die Welt: their columnist focuses on the conservative failure in cities, with only two CDU mayors in the 20 biggest German cities (Dresden and Wuppertal), and blames the lack of proper candidates on the part of the Baden-Württenberg CDU. But when analysing the Greens' success, it's not about topics but the personality of Baden-Württenberg's Green PM Kretschmann.
