      Wow, a whole 32.5% of the vote. Leader of a coalition. Note the 13.5% for AfD too. Not all so rosy in the motherland behind the headlines

      It's PR here, which engenders coalitions as every vote counts. I could have said you're ignorant of political systems but I'll refrain from this.

      And what has the electoral system got to do with the percentage of the vote? I think there is someone who is ignorant, but it isn't me.

      Very true, months of haggling ahead. Far right up to third place, inevitable considering the suicidal immigration policy by Merkel. More repercussions likely as the Fatherland comes to terms with this in the coming years.

      In a PR system, by the very definition, the percentage is the essence of the vote. You can Google it for more info.

      Think you're been drinking too much.

      You're on about 'Strong And Stable'. Well, it's not so strong and stable as the SPD are saying they will not go into a Grand Coalition.

      That leaves the 'minor' parties to negotiate and there are major policy disagreements between the Greens and FDP. The third placed (AfD) party is effectively 'barred' as no-one will go into coalition with them - hmm, so much for democracy and every vote counts. Only count as long as you vote the right way.

      Yep pal - it is sure looking like strong and stable. She even polls less than the Tories who, according to the left-wing 'f*ck-tards', are despised. Nice to see the Merkle is so resoundingly popular with 1/3 of the population.

      Two great results! I wasn't at the game so I'm lying on my bed multi-tasking with a glass of red wine

      By the way, I tried booking into the usual Xmas hotel and they wanted over double the price I've paid for the past 4-5 years this year. Decided to stay at Hotel Du Vin instead.

      You seem to be surprised by all of this; welcome to German coalition politics. It's the way they have engineered the system here....they don't like single parties holding all the power. They have a system and Merkel has won it again...and for a 4th time. She can only beat what is put in front of her.
