    Default German Federal Elections 2017 -24/09

    German Federal Elections due Sunday week 24/09 . Still no swing against Merkel's CDU (who in fact gained in polls over the past 6 months). SPD are just too discredited to do it by looks and headed for a very mediocre just above 20% (they did the major austerity spade-work themselves back in the 00s) The graph in the wiki tells it all . 4 parties vye for 3rd place, unfortunately Die Linke (Left party ) has been unable to emerge from the scrabble (they look lame I'd hazard due to egghead element within attacking the pragmatic chancellor candidate Wagenkneck for copying Corbyn to Melenchon on migration) . The Greens have followed SPD into the doldrums and the centre left to left combined vote stands at 10% less than before the Schroder era

    Analysis in English isnt great, public broadcaster Duetsche Welle is as good as any http://www.dw.com/en/top-stories/ger...ction/s-100649
    Liberalish Der Speigel seems less good than before (their once detailed coverage simplified) http://www.spiegel.de/international/

    In German the Berlin ND is associated with Die Linke https://www.neues-deutschland.de/
    The also Berliner paper Tagezeitung with the Greens http://www.taz.de/
    Franfurt's Rundschau has been called centre left so SPD ? http://www.fr.de/
    As elsewhere most of the press is neo-liberal if not traditional right and there are many sources
