How magical is the magic formula?

welcome to the good German in a nutshell. In the last office hours of the Language I showed to make me clueless about the origin of the phrase "a case". A friend of the good German has sent me a statement from the Swiss Idiotikon of 1880, according to the phrase of "the case of the trains coming", if someone has a saddened expression on his face. An interesting statement, for which I heartily thank you.

Today it is a different case: the composition of the Swiss Federal Council. So far, everything was quite simple: SVP, SP, FDP, each of which has 2 seats, CVP. This is the so-called magic formula. It is since 1959, so to speak, always, and she created the Illusion that in Switzerland, everything could remain as it is. Stability forever. So it is with the success of the Greens in the past. The spell is broken. Like the Greens in the Bundesrat represent, without alienating others? As the policy sits in the case. To get out of there, it would take almost magical abilities, maybe even Harry Potter's magic wand.

But what is actually conditions so magical to the simple Translation of parliamentary Forces in the government? To do this, you must only expect a fraction. Thus, the term "formula seems to me to have" from a mathematical point of view, too high, "the magic formula" then.

The current give-and-take shows: The current distribution among the four parties has taken care of a while for the political pacification. With the peace, it's over. A new solution will come, now or later. "The magic formula" there is no need to call them then. Remember: language is our treasure, hats, and we care for you!
