Astonishing…a new political party in Germany and the BBC still ignores it one day after its official announcement….after all ‘German news magazine Focus found that 26 percent of Germans would be willing to vote for an anti-euro party’ :
‘The Alternative for Germany, or AfD. Founded by a group of businessmen, economists, politicians and journalists, this political party has a simple platform. They argue that the euro has subverted democracy and undermined the rule of law, particularly the Maastricht Treaty’s provision against bailouts.’
A party with perhaps 26% of the vote isn’t worth a look I suppose….Labour fortunately took 29% of the vote whilst the Liberals polled a meagre 23% in 2010…oh look…the Liberals had the balance of power and are in government.
Maybe 26% isn’t too bad after all…maybe worth a look eh BBC?
