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

PS. I'm not sure Merkel has all that much clout left... let me rephrase, Merkel is very much weakened here, and her recent attempts at "finding compromise" have already shown she's lost power, since they didn't work. For example, her attempts at helping the auto industry avoid the worst payback from the diesel scandals, and resultant coming Fahrverbot (diesel autos not allowed) in frankfurt and other major cities, shows her previous ability to force compromise has waned at best. (I won't go into the details of her attempted compromises here.)

Not to mention, her attempt to keep the government together is on very shaky footing.
