The Political ash Wednesday in Demmin mattered far more to the mandatory dates of the season, the found the there of posted correspondents commonly referred to as criminal command. In the small town in Mecklenburg, Angela Merkel, the year proved to be the year that you will put on performances as a strong speaker, even to the carnival finale no value. In the previous year by the country-CDU-Packed audience heard here at the tennis hall for a lecture, this time about the merits of the freshly negotiated the coalition agreement with the SPD. And listened to it a well-known sentence at the end: "I am convinced that We can do this."
That would be the last sentence of the CDU-Chairman Angela Merkel, at this point, knew at the time, neither speaker nor listener. That he could linger a year later, even more, knew no one at all. Because of the Demminer ash Wednesday will take place again, only without the keynote speaker will be Angela Merkel. Their successor in the Chancellor's home. Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer is not only a proven Karnevalistin. The CDU leader has added to the "Create"-set to the predecessor, known to be a PostScript: As the "Ultima Ratio" in a future refugee crisis, they closed the border closures.
Since then, the Merkel is happy-a critical part of the Union, as’s the New to the Old circuit with a culture of welcome had been – finally! Too loud, the joy is not. Conversely friends is listening to Merkel, no significant Protest, rather you reap twitch on Demand one shoulder. Both has its reason. At a closer look the supposed turning point in asylum policy proves to be less rapid than initially appears.
Because Kramp-Karrenbauer has not only said the famous "daily themes,"set after the CDU/CSU"Workshop" for the Migration, but there are still some more. The distance between the Chancellor and CDU Chairman then significantly shrink.
it starts with The result of the workshop conversation. In the final paper of the border set can be found in the core of The speech is of the "other(n) policy(n) decisions", including "in the last consequence, if necessary, also with regard to inspections and refusals at the German borders." But even there, it is recalled that both the German law, as well as the framework in Europe have developed since 2015"," and "by" those other decisions would be possible.
The real distance between the New and the Old is in the words
In the television interview Kramp-Karrenbauer was concrete. Border closures, Yes, but: "We have also since last summer, in the Other a different Situation. The Chancellor has negotiated in Europe, that you can talk on the basis of agreements with neighboring States.“
The plays to Merkel's recent dispute with Horst Seehofer. The Federal Minister of the interior wanted to let the refugees that are registered in other EU-countries, at the border, the Chancellor insisted that the Federal police may, without Further notice. The compromise was: rejection is possible in such States that agree contractually in agreement with the procedure.
Kramp-Karrenbauer at that time was not involved as the CDU Secretary-General on this compromise. She has also campaigned massively for a co-ordinated European solution. External border countries such as Italy should not be simply left alone. It is about "such a thing as a fate question, which will decide whether Europe can stay in for a strong future together". Seehofer's alone, wrote the Saar countries even to the CDU-members that "threatens to divide Europe and weaken it".
Seehofer growled right back, he could not as a limited "province Prince" put down. But the woman from the German-French border in the Saar supported Merkel's resistance to it alone out of Conviction. Also in the Union workshop agreed that the "intelligent border surveillance to rejections" to "focal points" in accordance with European law can be conceived, it has clarified several times since then to conversation partners.
findings To the public clearly said in the CDU, there is no reason; who wants to read and in libraries, checking in, could do so unhindered. Maybe also the tactical Consideration plays a part there, that it is the party friends in the state elections in the East in the autumn could come, without If and But the possibility of the closure of the Border.
The test doesn't threaten anyway. To the extent that notes a from the Merkel-bearing, it was cheap, if Kramp cart Builder "Ultima Ratio" of the year 2019 against Merkel "We cannot close the borders" by 2015 – a hypothetical measure against a chaotic reality.More about

The real distance between the New and the Old is in the words. "Closing borders" would be a Merkel on the lips. But Merkel it is not a fall, in the apron-costume in the carnival act. "A lot of waffling, and nothing has been decided", certificated by the ACC as a "cleaning lady Gretel" of the Saarland in Berlin. This was, however, expressly to the Ruling.
