Invasion of Europe news…..
There is so much news out of a struggling-to-cope Germany that I suggest readers wishing to learn more simply search for ‘Merkel and refugees’ and take your pick of many news articles from around the world.
Here is the Financial Times on German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s plunging popularity. There is even a reference to the government commandeering private property to house the 10,000 or so refugees entering Germany EVERY DAY!
Angela Merkel has defended her decision to make Germany a haven for refugees, despite sliding public support and mounting criticism of the policy from within her ruling coalition.
Speaking as Germany marked the 25th anniversary of reunification, the chancellor on Sunday urged people to apply the same energy to the unprecedented migrant wave as was shown in bringing together West and East Germany.
“We stand before new tasks . . . the scale and scope of which we do not yet know,” Ms Merkel said in a radio interview. She insisted that if she had to review the move she took a month ago to relax asylum rules for refugees from war-ravaged Syria, the biggest source of migrants, she would take the same decision again.
Her comments come as opinion polls reveal a sharp drop in support for Ms Merkel’s leadership. A survey for ARD television last week showed that the share of Germans satisfied with her work plunged 9 percentage points in a month to 54 per cent — the lowest level since December 2001.
Meanwhile, Horst Seehofer, head of the conservative Bavarian CSU party, partner to Ms Merkel’s CDU, who has called the chancellor’s refugee policy a “mistake”, saw his support rise 11 points to 39 per cent.
The commonsense German citizen knows this rate of migration is unsustainable, and the mystery continues about why Merkel made this disastrous decision in the first place.
