La caduta di Mrs Nahles non è avvenuta per una congiura di palazzo, bensì per implosione del sistema socialdemocratico.

La Spd si è ridotta ad un partito incapace di comprendere cosa stia succedendo nella realtà mondiale e tedesca, e di conseguenza è incapace di formulare un programma politico credibile. Gli iscritti al partito, tranne rare eccezioni, sono canuti vegliardi: non rappresentano in nulla l’Elettorato. Consultarli e seguirne i suggerimenti è modo infallibile per andare al disastro completo.

La sua dirigenza è sclerotica, abbarbicata ai concetti passati in applicazione dei quali la Spd si sta estinguendo.

Non solo. La sua base elettorale è formata per il 44% da ultrasessantenni, pensionati, più assueti ai problemi di cateteri e pannoloni che con quelle delle sfide industriali e politiche odierne. Solo il 21% dell’elettorato è sotto i trentaquattro anni, con una perdita in tale fascia di età di ben 21 punti percentuali.

A ciò i aggiunga una martellante propaganda per lgbt e clima.

Per i vegliardi le trasgressioni sessuali sono messe dette, ed il ‘clima’ è una chimera dati i costi imponenti.

Nulla da stupirsi che un ragazzino, con un messaggio youtube visto quindici milioni di ascoltatori, un certo Herr Rezo, abbia incitato a non votare Cdu oppure Spd, che nulla hanno fatto per il ‘clima’.

Superati a sinistra, avrebbe detto il Divo Giulio.

Ci si rassegni: la Spd non rappresenta più nulla.

In realtà, restano tutte le società che fanno capo alla Spd e che vivono di finanziamenti pubblici. Il problema è come spartirsi il malloppo.

Ci si metta l’anima in pace: l’ultima frase pianta chiodi sul coperchio della bara.

Di qui a dicembre passa un’era. Sarà ben difficile che l’Unione Europea aspetti che l’Spd smetta di avere il mal di pancia


Bbc. 2019-06-03. German SPD set for three interim leaders amid coalition crisis

Three senior members of Germany’s embattled Social Democratic Party (SPD) are set to take over on an interim basis after its leader quit.

Outgoing SPD leader Andrea Nahles has resigned over her party’s poor performance in the European elections.

Her resignation has raised concerns that Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition government could collapse.

Mrs Merkel’s party says it wants to stay in power with the SDP, its junior coalition partner.

But party leader Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer said how the SPD behaved was up to them.

Europe’s biggest blocs lose grip on power

New political climate boosts European Greens

Merkel dismisses rumours of party rift

Three caretaker leaders are set to take over until Ms Nahles’ successor is elected: Manuela Schwesig is state premier in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Malu Dreyer is premier in Rhineland-Palatinate and Thorsten Schäfer-Gümbel is party leader in the Hesse.

Germany’s DPA news agency says the temporary joint leadership has been proposed to the party’s executive board, which met in Berlin on Monday.

Ms Nahles’ long-term replacement is yet to be determined, leaving Mrs Merkel’s “grand coalition” hanging in the balance until a decision is made.

Rolf Mützenich, who currently serves as deputy chairman of the SPD, was proposed as interim head of the party’s parliamentary group, the agency added.

The Social Democrats came third, behind Mrs Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU) and the Greens, in the 26 May elections.

The poor result has caused disquiet in the party, whose left-wing members have criticised Ms Nahles for remaining in the coalition.

Ms Nahles became SPD leader in April 2018, replacing Martin Schulz who had also resigned because of poor electoral performance. She had been expected to run for the position again and her resignation took analysts by surprise.

She said farewell to her party’s leadership at its Berlin HQ on Monday, thanking them “for the years of good co-operation” in a press conference afterwards.

The coalition between the CDU and the SPD is due to last until federal elections in 2021, but correspondents say Ms Nahles’s resignation could lead to the SPD leaving, triggering a snap poll.

Mrs Merkel herself plans to step down as chancellor in 2021, having already resigned as CDU leader at the end of last year.

No obvious choice

Analysis by BBC Berlin Correspondent Damien McGuinness

Many never wanted the SPD to be in government again in the first place.

Party left-wingers blame plummeting support on years of messy compromise with Angela Merkel’s conservatives.

Now pressure is growing on the SPD to quit the coalition and bring down the government, in the hope that fresh elections would help them ditch the conservatives and build a left-wing coalition.

The problem is new elections are unlikely to help. Current polls place the SPD in third place after the Greens. There is no leader-apparent ready to take over. And the party’s message on many big issues, from climate change to migration, remains unclear.

In 2017 it took six months of wrangling to form this government. That was followed by half a year of internal bickering that exasperated voters.

The only parties that would benefit from more struggles for power within Germany’s two big parties would be the Greens and the far-right AfD.

What next for the coalition?

Mrs Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU) were also meeting to discuss the crisis as the junior partner in the coalition considered its next step.

CDU leader Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer told reporters that the party was willing to continue sharing power with the Social Democrats. “We want to do justice to the government mandate,” she said.

Several senior party figures in the Social Democrats, including Vice-Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Lower Saxony’s Prime Minister, Stephan Weil, have ruled themselves out of the leadership race.

Former SDP leader Thomas Oppermann said it could take “one, two months” to choose Ms Nahles’ replacement.

He said the political instability was “not a good overall situation” and warned his party against “waiting for further defeats”, alluding to the forthcoming elections in three East German states in September and October.

Polls suggest the SDP may suffer losses in those elections. In a Forsa survey, the SPD dropped by five percentage points to 12%, its lowest-ever score on a national level.

Ms Nahles said on Sunday she would stand down as SPD leader and as head of its parliamentary group.

“The discussions within the parliamentary faction and feedback from within the party have shown me that I no longer have the necessary support to carry out my duties,” she said in a a statement.

A new leader was due to be elected at the party’s conference in December. But party chiefs could bring that vote forward in light of Ms Nahles’ resignation.

What if the coalition falls?

If the SPD were to leave the coalition, the fall of the government would be likely to trigger fresh elections.

Olaf Scholz told Tagesspiegel newspaper he had ruled out entering another such coalition.

“Three grand coalitions in a row would not do democracy in Germany any good,” he said in the interview before Ms Nahles announced her resignation.

The latest crisis come days after Mrs Merkel dismissed reports of a rift with Mrs Kramp-Karrenbauer.

Two unidentified officials quoted in a Bloomberg article had said Mrs Merkel believed her successor was not up to the job. But the German chancellor dismissed the claims as nonsense.

Euro New. 2019-06-03. Germany’s Social Democrats seek leader after Nahles’ surprise resignation

Germany’s troubled Social Democrats (SPD) on Monday was in talks to appoint three temporary leaders following the resignation of Andrea Nahles.

SPD party chiefs proposed three caretakers to jointly lead the party while it takes time to settle on a new chief: Manuela Schwesig and Malu Dreyer, the premiers of the states of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Rhineland-Palatinate respectively, and Thorsten Schaefer-Guembel, who leads the SPD in Hesse, Reuters said, citing party sources.

Chancellor Angela Merkel said the German government would carry on its work following the shock resignation from Nahles, a junior member of Merkel’s governing coalition, on Sunday amid a slump in the party’s popularity.

“What I want to say for the government is that we will continue with our work with all seriousness and with great responsibility,” Merkel said in a statement to the press.

The centre-left party fell to third place behind Merkel’s CDU bloc and the Greens in last month’s European Parliament elections.

Nahles said she would also resign as head of the party’s parliamentary group as she did not have the support to lead it.

She took over as leader in February 2018, as the SPD reluctantly extended their “grand coalition” with Merkel’s conservatives following a poor showing in the previous year’s German national election.

Nahles had been due to face a vote on her leadership position on Tuesday after her decision to stay in the coalition was criticised by the party’s left.

“The discussions within the parliamentary faction and feedback from within the party have shown me that I no longer have the necessary support to carry out my duties,” Nahles said in a statement.

What does this mean for Merkel’s coalition?

The “grand coalition” is due to rule until 2021 but Nahles’ resignation could trigger an early exit from the SPD — forcing Merkel to call snap elections to lead a minority government or seek an alliance with the Greens and liberal Free Democrats.

Trouble within the SPD comes at a time when the Chancellor’s CDU party faces its own problems.

Germany’s Greens overtook the conservatives to become the country’s most popular party, showed an opinion poll on Saturday.

The CDU’s party leader Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer called on the SPD to make sure Germany remains with a stable and functioning government.

“I am assuming that the SPD will make its personnel decisions quickly and that the grand coalition’s ability to act will not be impaired,” she said on Sunday.

However, not everyone is for extending the rule of the “grand coalition”.

Earlier, German vice-chancellor Olaf Scholz told Tagesspiegel that he had ruled out entering another grand coalition as the SPD seeks to regroup.

“I am very sure that it would not be justifiable for us to have a fifth grand coalition,” Scholz said in an interview published before Nahles’ announcement. “Three grand coalitions in a row would not do democracy in Germany any good.”

The ruling coalition is due for a midterm review in September, which could be an opportunity for the SPD to pull the plug on its alliance with the CDU.

Merkel, who handed the leadership of her Christian Democratic Union party to Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer in December, has said she wants to stay on as chancellor until her fourth term ends when Germany holds its next national election in late 2021.
