I do not understand it

29 July, 2010 (17:28) | elections, parties | By: Aerar

(German version published on 2 May, 2010) I am not really surprised when a study of the Communication Labs Ulm and the University of Hohenheim comes to the result that the agendas of the parties for the elections in NRW are hard to understand (German). After all I thing here politicians are writing for politicians […]

Badly calculated

26 May, 2010 (18:42) | elections, federal states, parties | By: Aerar

(German version published on 25 April, 2010) “Nach der aktuellen Umfrage von tns Emnid im Auftrag des Magazins “Focus” kommt die CDU NRW bei der Sonntagsfrage zur Landtagswahl am 9. Mai auf 38 Prozent. Die SPD hingegen liegt bei 34 Prozent, Die Grünen bei 11 Prozent, die FDP bei 8 Prozent und die Linkspartei bei […]

Re critique

11 May, 2010 (19:12) | media, particulars, parties, political trade | By: Aerar

(German version published on 31 March, 2010) I have to admit that a certain FDP bashing currently (not without course) is quite modern. Therefore one needs to be careful not simply to call “Boooh” by reflex if the party’s name is mentioned and of course should not believe in everything shown on TV. So I […]

Still about 1360 days

28 April, 2010 (20:02) | particulars, parties, political trade | By: Aerar

(German version published on 4 February, 2010) At 27 Oktober 2009 the 17th period of the German Bundestag began lead by the parties of CDU/CSU and FDP under Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel. It is usual to evalutate the government’s work after the first 100 days have passed. This time should be enough for the partners […]

Too good to be bribed

13 April, 2010 (14:12) | economy, parties, political trade | By: Aerar

(German version published on 21 January, 2010) Somehow I consider my proposal to regulate donations to parties is getting more important. The taz writes in its online version: “Die Förderung der erneuerbaren Energien ist ein gesellschaftlich notwendiges, sinnvolles und richtiges Ziel”, sagt die Bundesgeschäftsführerin der Grünen zu den Vorwürfen, auch ihre Partei schrecke vor der […]

Bought, donated or funded?

12 April, 2010 (11:53) | parties, political trade, proposals | By: Aerar

(German version published on 20 January, 2010) In the end that is the question in the discussion about the donation of a hotel owner to the FDP (German). The suspicion of purchasability is weighting heavily as it is destroying democracy. And it is a problem for everyone involved and for the tax payer as well […]

Taking it easy

8 March, 2010 (19:22) | media, parties, political trade | By: Aerar

(German version published on 24 November, 2009) In the case of Nikolaus Brender (German), whos position as chief editor of the ZDF is put into question presumptive because of reasons of party related politics, shortly ago 35 leading experts of constitutional law wrote an open letter (German) in which they stated their concern against a […]

We can play it differently

3 February, 2010 (22:19) | particulars, parties | By: Aerar

(German version published on 24 Oktober, 2009) Now we know what the new Cabinet of the coming black and yellow government will look like. I will state comments of myself at the end of this post but there are overviews and comments for example also at SPON (German), Stern online (German) with a page for […]

Party opinion poll: NPD

26 September, 2009 (12:10) | elections, parties, series | By: Aerar

I tried to make a Party opinion poll and so got from many political parties an answer to four questions which could be read in my original email. Unfortunally there will be no translation of any of the answers, but nevertheless I will publish the link to the German version of the answer. In case […]

Thinking in Coalitions

17 September, 2009 (12:59) | elections, parties, political trade | By: Aerar

When looking at the current polls on the elections to the German Bundestag the decision seems not too clear yet. We shall not forget the victory of the SPD under Gerhard Schröder against Edmund Stoiber in 2002. Like then it now does not look to bright for the SPD. The recent results of Forsa (other […]
