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

Humboldt university has fired him as well. Everybody knew he was a Stasi trainee, even a full time employee for a short time before the wall came down. So why have him employed in the first place? Secondly, why nominate him for a deputy minister post?

From a professional pov he had a lot of informative things to say about gentrification. But it was foreseeable that his nomination wouldn't fly politically. Which leads me to believe that "R2G" (current parlance for Red-Red-Green) is dead on arrival in the general election because they're amateurs.

Schengen is toast!

As far as I can see the allegations are a nothing burger. The SPD folding here means they aren't ready to face a stiff breeze. You can look at Sanders and Corbyn if you have any doubt about what you'd have to face if you get close to succeeding with a left wing program.

Suceeding? Nobdoy has gotten that far yet. Corbyn and Sanders show what happens if you even dare articulate a left-wing program in public.
