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

DoDo nails this issue, particularly #4, the following Paragraph, and the political analysis.

to date, not even the Greens (not especially the Greens) have made the case that it's the industry exemption that has screwed the pooch. Behind the public comments, the effect is well known, as Trittin told me himself.

i remain unable to comprehend this, as it's clear that a significant sector of the German electorate would understand, and vote accordingly. Instead, everything is taking place in negotiations behind the scenes, as befits an oligarchy.

To be precise: the limitation of the energy-intensive industry exemption to a narrower circle is treated as something everyone agrees upon, but only as if it were a technical side issue, rather than a homing in on the core problem.
