«Der Fall wirft ein Schlaglicht auf die umstrittene GroKo-Abstimmung in der SPD.»
«Geht bei der Mitgliederabstimmung der SPD alles mit rechten Dingen zu? Oder ist Manipulation möglich? BILD enthüllte: Sogar ein Hund („Lima“) wurde ganz offiziell SPD-Mitglied.»
“Il voto interno per i membri del SPD è davvero corretto? Oppure è possibile una manipolazione? Bild lo ha rivelato: Anche una cagnetta (“Lima”) è diventata membro ufficiale del SPD.”
«„Wir prüfen, ob wir die Mitgliedschaft annullieren können, da sie offensichtlich mit Täuschungsabsicht erstellt worden ist.“»
“Stiamo verificando per vedere se possiamo annullare l’iscrizione, perché ovviamente è stata creata con l’ intento di ingannare”
Per approfondimenti su come una cagnetta possa iscriversi alla socialdemocrazia tedesca e votare, e come la burocrazia interna del partito non sappia che pesci prendere per annullarne l’iscrizione, suggeriremmo questo articolo:

Stanno girando molte salacie sul conto della Spd. Bild non gliene rattoppa nemmeno una.
Sono in molti ad argomentare che se nell’Spd c’è posto per Herr Schulz, allora Lima si troverebbe a casa sua. Altri invece difendono la povera cagna, asserendo che i socialdemocratici se la sbraneranno more ferarum, così come hanno fatto con Herr Gabriel.
Sta di fatto che sia stato possibile che un cane si iscrivesse al partito Spd, ricevesse le schede per il voto ed infine abbia votato.
Non si vorrebbe entrare in dettagli, ma si lascia ai signori Lettori trarre le conclusioni su cosa stia succedendo in Germania nel referendum di partito se aderire o meno alla Große Koalition.
«Für 10 Euro bleibst du zwei Monate Mitglied, stimmst gegen die Große Koalition und gehst dann wieder raus»
“Per 10 euro, rimarrai membro per due mesi, voterai contro la Grande Coalizione e poi te ne uscirai”
Ma se questa è la simpatica versione democratica di Herr Kevin Kuehnert, che si compra i voti a suo di euro, Herr Schulz non scherza mica: ha fatto iscrivere all’Spd un buon numero di islamici, non cittadini tedeschi. Oltre 7,000.
Ci si domanda che senso abbia fare delle votazioni in questa e con simile gente.
Otterrà la maggioranza dei consensi la fazione
che avrà saputo fare i brogli migliori.

Al momento il risultato del referendum è impredicibile, ma i suoi effetti saranno duraturi.
Con questa manovra Herr Schulz è riuscito a spaccare in due fazioni contrapposte il suo vecchio partito.
Se è possibile formare una nuova Große Koalition, appare del tutto inverosimile che Herr Kevin Kuehnert resista alla tentazione di mandarla in minoranza a tempo opportuno, per esempio dopo le elezioni nei Länder Hesse a Baviera.

«Social Democrats are angry at a report about a dog joining the party and getting a ballot on the grand coalition. Untrue, they say — but does this case highlight a flaw in asking party members to approve the deal?
It’s a tale of the party versus the paper. On Tuesday, Germany’s Bild newspaper — never averse to attention-grabbing, if sometimes misleading headlines — led with a story that a three-year-old dog named Lima had joined the Social Democratic Party (SPD) and received a ballot asking her to vote on the SPD’s coalition agreement with Angela Merkel’s conservatives.
The party is asking its 460,000-plus members to ratify the deal before entering into another junior partnership with Merkel. Roughly 25,000 new members signed on before the deadline on February 6 to be eligible to vote on the agreement. Critics object that the procedure gives a small group of people undue influence over the next German government and is open to abuse.
Bild filled out the membership application form for Lima as a way of underscoring those points, much to the amusement of many Germans. But the SPD wasn’t laughing.
– Young Berlin activist leads opposition to coalition deal
– SPD vote’s a toss-up with ‘good arguments’ on both sides
The last barrier to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s fourth term is an activist named Kevin who was born the same year the Berlin Wall fell.
The 28-year-old head of the Social Democrats’ youth organization, Kevin Kuehnert has become the youthful face of widespread party frustration, arguing that a role in the opposition is better than yet another alliance with the so-called Queen of Europe. Battling Merkel and his own party’s leadership, he’s become a ubiquitous presence in Germany, appearing on talk shows, giving newspaper and television interviews and debating at SPD events.
“The SPD is a proud, old party and doesn’t have to orient itself based on what Mrs. Merkel wants,” Kuehnert said in an interview with public broadcaster ARD on Sunday after a rally near Frankfurt. “We’re not in a monarchy.”
Kuehnert’s direct rhetoric and boy-next-door appearance stand to make for a tight race as SPD’s 463,000 members start voting Tuesday on accepting or rejecting the coalition agreement with Merkel’s Christian Democrat-led bloc. The results of the ballot, which will be conducted by mail, will be unveiled on March 4.
“The biggest risk to the membership vote is posed by the left-leaning members who for ideological reasons oppose a grand coalition,” Manfred Guellner, head of polling group Forsa. “It’s difficult to predict the outcome.”
Bild, Germany’s most-read newspaper, helped stoke the flames of political tension on Tuesday with a front-page story about a dog named Lima that became an SPD member. “Is manipulation possible?,” the tabloid wrote. “This is an attempt to make a farce out of strong internal party democracy, which others parties could use themselves,” Ralf Stegner, SPD vice chairman, wrote on Twitter.
Tensions within the SPD surged in the months after a historic defeat in national elections in September, with the membership split over whether to rebuild in opposition or to push for Social Democratic policies from inside the government. That dilemma has become existential as support further declined from a postwar election low. One poll on Monday showed the SPD below the far-right Alternative for Germany for the first time.
Now, it’s up to the SPD members to decide on a coalition agreement that stabilizes Germany, but risks further diluting the party’s profile by serving as Merkel’s junior partner for the third time.
Andrea Nahles, the SPD’s designated chairwoman, who along with other party leaders is crisscrossing Germany to lobby in favor of a return to government, is optimistic about the vote because of gains made for workers and retirees in the coalition agreement. Even so, the party still needs to reinvent itself to win back voters, she said before a rally in Mainz. A poll from Friday showed 66 percent of members backing a so-called grand coalition of Germany’s two biggest parties.
“It’s very difficult because there’s good arguments on both sides,” said Joerg Lorenz, managing director of the party’s operations in Duisburg, a traditional SPD stronghold in Germany’s Rust Belt, adding that the level of tension is like nothing he’s seen in over 30 years of service.
Merkel’s response to the challenge from Kuehnert and others critics has been a return to the world stage, meeting with a series of dignitaries in recent days including British Prime Minister Theresa May as well as the heads of the Netherlands, Poland, Luxembourg and the World Bank.
Despite criticism over handing the SPD the powerful finance ministry in the coalition accord, Merkel is reasserting control over her political base, appointing close ally and potential successor Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer as CDU general secretary.
Kuehnert shrugs off the risks of SPD’s fall from grace, saying the best way to reverse the decline is by coming up with clear political positions in opposition or as an occasional collaborator with a CDU minority government.
“The SPD has nothing to fear by rejecting this coalition agreement,” Kuehnert, dressed in a black t-shirt, told ARD. “Now is the hour of the SPD members.”
