What can we read about on Polish web portals?

26.09.2021

German national elections - a draw between two major parties. Who will become the new Chancellor?

Switzerland - a referendum gives green light to one-sex marriages with adoption option. 64% voters for.

Iceland - more females than males in newly elected Parliament - a unique situation on European scale

The USA - 432 Park Avenue skyscraper in NYC is too noisy during gales which disturbs sleep and is troubled by other misfortunes like malfunctioning elevators - tenants are going to sue the developer for over 100 million.

Probably a grey mouse called Scholz.....

@Bratwurst Boy ; Probably....
Probably not, because coalition CDU/CSU, Grüne and FDP is also possible.

......okay......then probably another grey mouse called Laschet!

I'm not that exhilarated either....a "Neuanfang" that is not!

Hopefully.

The election in failed-state-Berlin was totally chaotic and maybe even fishy.....I wish all these immigrated anarchos would go home and make their chaos there (and vote red there too)!

That's third-world-like-embarassing! 🙄

not good enough for a spd/greens/left alliance.

The Left won't even take the 5% hurdle...

And the AfD consolidates itself as the Ossi-party....

What a sht-hole I must live in. AfD 32%

In some of their target areas the faschos are deeply disappointed which is obviously good. They got, I think, only 11% (which is 11% too much, but still gratifyingly upsetting for them)

And it's a shift away from Merkel's right wing party, which is excellent news.

Interesting what coalition will emerge. The Greens however are very much the kingmakers here.
Bratwurst Boy 12 | 12,860

Interesting observation.....the Greens with all that medial support got barely 14%......the AfD was shunned everywhere and got still nearly 11% and took over Saxony and Thuringia from the CDU....not that much difference!

I would put the Greens and the CDU into the same loser corner!

Surprisingly many youth voted FDP.....that nobody expected....and the Left is dying. The real dying old SED-core voter can't be replenished by some idealistic west youth....their goals are no longer the traditional class war but wokenism!

What can you tell us about them? Going to google them right away
Bratwurst Boy 12 | 12,860

The youth or the FDP??? :)

A tiny party but probably now a "kingmaker".....I'm not sure what Lindner wants, only that he wants to be part of the power as he left the coaltion talks explode 2017 already!

FDP and your opinion of why the youth voted for them! :)

So they are the deciding factor wether we will see CDU or SPD having a chancellor?
My main worry for SPD leading Germany is their potential connections within Russia and the continuation of the nord stream 2

Well...split between Greens and FDP would describe it better. But since for months the medial record only played the "green youth" and the "left youth" song it comes at a surprise that 21% of the youth voted neither left nor green...but quite conservative at their first after-Merkel election!

So they are the deciding factor wether we will see CDU or SPD having a chancellor?

FDP and the GREENS....that's why both have talks with each others first....together they have more votes than the SPD....everything is open right now! The scale could tip either way....

@Bratwurst Boy
Youth? Listening to mainstream media? When they use Tik-Tok, SC or spotify? xD
Absurd

Interesting, future of eastern Europe and which way Germany will go depends on it

For enemies of Nordstream the GREENS in the gov would be a better hope though....

energymonitor.ai/tech/networks-grids/why-the-german-greens-want-to-kill-nord-stream-2

SPD is pro Nord Stream:

"Who blocks Nord Stream 2 blocks early coal exit"

vorwaerts.de/artikel/spd-nord-stream-2-blockiert-verhindert-fruehen-kohleausstieg

Merkel's CDU was pushing the project....

Greens... Are they authoritarian in nature in Germany? Or is it a foolish question

So neither CDU or SPD :O
Very difficult dilemma for Poland
Bratwurst Boy 12 | 12,860
27 Sep 2021 #20
Not really....normal....some have more to say than others.....now that Baerbock mangled the election her "second" Habeck's star could go up. He is now widely seen as the better choice for the top postings (and is seemingly already best friends with FDP Lindner)...

Very difficult dilemma for Poland

CDU deserves a few years in the opposition, after 16 years of Merkel the party is burned out to a shell....

To put some faces to the numbers:



Together the GREEN and the FDP have the most votes....more than the CDU or the SPD....if they find an agreement they can choose whom they want to go into coalition talks with, who after successful conclusion will then become Chancellor...

The same reason you support konfa, very pro business and getting rid of government oversight and regulation. after lockdown many young people are over big governement

@amiga500
I support konfa for a lot of reasons, have yet to have the Opportunity to vote for them tho. They seem to be the ones most open to the idea of creating as many workplaces as possible without the risk of large government involvement. Which again should lead to them being functional and not a drain for the society at large.

I am in a position of seeking work, so the more work opportunities there are. The better, my impression has been that not all youth has the same approach and quickly changes it after being hired somewhere

many youth voted FDP.

A good sign.

The Greens never get that many; they don't need to. Just enough to help form a coalition to get the right-wingers from CDU out.

GREEN and the FDP

Let's hope it all goes well with them and the SPD.

Much needed both in Germany and elsewhere.

As right-wingers go, I quite liked Merkel; she was a genuine stateswoman. Change is appropriate now though.

Hopefully the greens will help form the left/centre coalition without holding back too much in growth and technology.

But 10 million more engineers and scientists from Afghanistan should do wonders for Germany and the rest of Europe. For this, Germans need Merkel 2.0.

10 million more engineers and scientists from Afghanistan

Afghanistan has exactly the same population as Poland, and since far fewer than a quarter of them are engineers and scientists, unfortunately we won't get 10 million more engineers or scientists, though those professions (assuming they're real graduate Engineers and not just factory technicians or machinists) do already qualify easily for visas and are among the most mobile in society.

Anyway, the voters there (specifically 89% of them) rejected the main anti-immigration party, as they did in the US.

Iceland - more females than males in newly elected Parliament

Oops, I have just read they had counted the votes once again and the female majority is gone. Pity - maybe next time.

Foreign news episode 2
27.09.2021

Russia is said to cut down on LNG supplies to Europe. Reserves in Western Europe are low. Prices are soaring.

UK filling stations are running on empty. Reason for shortages: lack of truck drivers.
