National Congress of the social Democrats : The self-expropriation of the Berlin SPD

It is the phrase of the hour, he is capable of – and he comes from the Governing mayor: "So it doesn't go any further!", scolded Michael Müller at the weekend in his role as the Berlin SPD chief over their own government coalition. The left and the Greens, he said, "common sense" and announced that it plans to block partners ' projects, in a defiant Fußaufstampfer included.

decide The after all, Müller very well. He called on his party to the other not always chase, but to set their own topics and to keep track of. However, the SPD came the sense of loss, what are your issues, that is why she clings so to the term: perceived facts. This makes them so long, until also, the claim that Müller was the mayor, is, at best, a "perceived fact" – and then soon no more.
