      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
      Blimey only 32% of the vote ?? that's hardly a ringing endorsement is it. That means more than half didn't want her

      The first time that Nazis have won seats in Germany since WWII with 13.5% share of the votes. I'm not sure that Germany is quite the strong and stable paradise as is being painted by some. Anyway, I thought the OP was a proud socialist. Merkel's a Christian Conservative who went into politics because of her disgust at how socialism had ruined her country.

      You’re either being sarcastic about the result there, or have not read anything from commentators.

      This result is anything but Strong & Stable.

      Over 1 in 8 have voted for an anti-immigration party.
      The second place party SPD are (at this point in time) refusing to go into coalition.
      This means that there will need to be a coalition with FDP (pro business) and the Greens and there are huge policy differences between these parties.

      If the SPD change their minds and go into a coalition, then the AfD become the official opposition.

      You might wish to think about the facts before espousing crap about strong and stable

      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.
      Shame they don't view Europe like that though.

      You appear naive about how governments work in PR systems. Do some research

      Who uses a "cheap" Turkish / Syrian cleaner? I have never given any thought to it but if they were legitimately in the U.K. then why not, as long as they were honest and were great at their job. I am not a narrow minded nationalist Pay well though, it's better than being a cheapskate.
