Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Definitely. Recently there is a red red green coalition in Berlin. And Berlin seems definitely to be the place where political hope goes to die. The Left gave Andrej Holm, a noted activist for renter rights a State Secretariate. (Is that what it's called? Staatssekretär?) He also was in the Stasi academy when he was 18. So the usual happens, the national office that manages the Stasi files releases his because they are relevant for lower level functionaries if leftwing as opposed to for example CDU chancellors. We then have the usual song and dance until the SPD mayor decides to fire him. Useless as ever.
