It ain't over until the SDP membership has voted on it. But it's close now, fam.
SDP will likely be liquidated as a serious political force in German politics the way PS was in France as a result of this. Shulz knew this, but decided to put aside party interest and instead pursue a bold pro-European agenda.
If this succeeds, I think history will judge him kindly, except for the narrowminded SDP-first hecklers. Now we need an ultra-aggressive reform path for the EU. We've lost many years just dithering. The moment is ours to seize.
Europe: The two parties have apparently agreed that Europe needs "more investment," specifically in the shape of an investment budget for the eurozone. That deal was celebrated by the SPD as "an end to the austerity mandate" across the European Union, but it remains to be seen how the details pan out. The parties also promised a special focus on reducing unemployment among young people and "fair taxation of companies — especially the internet giants Google, Apple, Facebook, and Amazon in Europe."
Funny if it was 52%
Not sure, the Delegates voted 56% in favor, which was rather weak as the party leaders were all in favor. ~25.000 People(5%) joined the SPD since they said that Members can vote and it was highly promoted to join and vote against, so one could argue that the vast majority of the new members will vote against. I think it's gonna be really close like 50-53%, probably in favor.
This is quite a major thing that all the sceptics are completely glossing over. The SPD is set to reside over the finance ministry which basically means they will be in charge of Germany's euro zone policy. Considering that euro zone reform was one of the biggest pledges made by Schulz it seems he may actually achieve it. How this is nothing but a good thing beats me.
your use of "meme speak" completely destroys the credibility of your argument.
The SPD's 460,000 members will have a final say on whether to accept a coalition agreement in a postal vote due to take place in coming weeks.
So will they vote yay or nay?
What are they replacing it with?
Banned glyphosate and GMO too. Pathetic.
Surprised they got glyophosphates banned
