Csu wants tough election campaign with feeling

Csu wants tough election campaign with feeling

He wants to supplement rational election campaign arguments with emotionality, CSU leader horst seehofer said tuesday at the CSU winter meeting in wildbad kreuth. The union must not be a variant of the SPD and the greens, but an alternative. Talks with the CDU about the election campaign strategy have yet to be held. "It would be bad to announce the results of negotiations before they are held," said the CSU leader.

2009, the strategy of ronald pofalla, then CDU secretary general and now head of the chancellor’s office, was based on "asymmetric demobilization" – the SPD voters were to be made less fearful of a black-yellow coalition and thus less motivated to vote. The CSU already had doubts about the "schlaagen election campaign" at that time and subsequently felt confirmed by the unexpectedly poor results of the union – CDU/CSU had only achieved 33.8 percent at that time.

In the meantime, seehofer has abandoned his plans for his own CSU election platform. He does not want a joint election program with the CDU to fail because of the demand for a toll on cars, which was rejected by chancellor angela merkel (CDU). If necessary, however, the CSU will formulate its own points in parallel, seehofer said. "There are points where you can’t come to an understanding despite all the friendship," said the bavarian minister-president. Then it was not unusual in the past that the CSU decided on some own points on an extra sheet of paper. "This is how we will do it."

Outdoor pool causes some frustration

Outdoor pool causes some frustration

For nine years, the chairman of the SPD parliamentary group in the bavarian state parliament, markus rinderspacher, has been involved in the "red cyclists" summer campaign on the road in the free state. The penultimate stop on the tour and the last stop in bavaria was a stop at the outdoor pool in autenhausen. A "showcase project with a crunch", as carsten hollein, SPD district chairman and city councilor in seblach, remarked. For as much as the participants of the cycling group had enjoyed refreshing themselves: due to various problems (first because of the swimming pool master’s illness, and most recently because of the quality of the water), the idyllic pool – as reported several times – has to remain closed this season. Even though "chief technician dominik fick of the forderverein the classification of the measured values as "carcinogenic criticized as excessive, because the strict limits otherwise applied to indoor baths, in which vapors – unlike in open-air facilities – could not be drawn off. "So we’re ready to go, just in case someone says we can", although martina kilian explained with a view to the facility, which is kept in top condition by the forderverein, the second chairwoman’s gaze has long been directed forward, to the transformation of the facility into a natural swimming pool. With the technology from the 1970s, better values will no longer be achieved, she admitted.

Kilian outlined the planned conversion work and explained why the "autilus" project is so important suddenly on the verge of collapse again. And this despite the fact that the seblach city council has already approved funds and planned measures have fallen victim to the red pencil. Only one bidder responded to the europe-wide general invitation to tender, and his offer was 92,000 euros higher than the calculated costs. On 13. In september, representatives of the forderverein now want to discuss with the city of seblach and the planners how things can be continued. In order to reduce the deficit, trades are to be put out to tender individually and more work than currently calculated is to be carried out by the club members themselves. The renovation of the swimming pool, which is being funded by the city and the eler, and the modernization of the kiosk and sanitary facilities, which is being supported by leader funds, cannot be separated, emphasized kilian. District administrator michael busch (SPD) offered the help of the district administration in the tendering process, while bad rodach’s mayor tobias ehrlicher (SPD) advised that the work might be postponed until spring in the hope of obtaining better prices. "We are all in the starting holes and will not give up despite all the obstacles", kilian made clear. Before the pool actually has to be closed, the association prefers to wait another year, she added. After all, the open-air swimming pool is the meeting place par excellence for the locals. "The longer it takes, the more frustrated the volunteers become", gave hollein cause for concern.

According to rinderspacher, he has visited almost 30 baths in the last few years. He called for a revision of the requirements criteria by the relevant government agencies. Unfortunately, the current only love the demand of indoor pools to.

Candidate portrait: why claudia john wants to become bamberger oberburg mayor

candidate portrait: why claudia john wants to become bamberger oberburg mayor

When claudia john stands in her living room and stretches out her arms, she can grasp bamberger history with her hands. The renovated but still worm-eaten wooden beams date back to the original time of the small house not far from the muhlworth. A 3.20 meter wide and four story high piece of bamberger architectural history. Since 1460, all owners have been known to be luckless. A tower master was among them, a shoemaker, and since the summer before last, the freshly renovated house has belonged to the couple randy and claudia john. The latter is a sideline OB candidate.

Claudia john, 30 years old, grew up in bamberg and pettstadt, knows the inner workings of maxplatz town hall only from hearsay so far. Nevertheless, her name will have to be remembered. That’s not so much because she’s running for mayor. John is also a list leader of the free voters, and as such she reckons she has a good chance of becoming a member of the bamberg city council.

Who is this young lady who has the confidence to lead a department with about 1000 employees and to lead a city with almost 80,000 people into the future?? What drives her, what kind of life does she lead when she is not hanging up posters, handing out flyers and, as is often the case these days, explaining the goals of her own party at information booths? ?

Brexit analysis: british government in need of explanation

Brexit analysis: british government in need of explanation

The british government has been put in a spot of bother by an analysis of the impact of the brexit on the economy that has been released to the public. According to the government’s analysis, britain has nothing to gain economically from leaving the EU.

This was reported by the news site buzzfeed on monday evening, citing a draft of the document. Accordingly, almost all sectors of the economy in the united kingdom have suffered, regardless of how the negotiations with the european union go. Remaining in the european single market was only going to limit the damage. Officially, the government in london insists that the brexit will open up considerable opportunities for the country.

The fact that brexit minister david davis denied at a hearing before the parliament’s brexit committee at the end of last year that such an analysis existed at all also caused trouble. "This is a complete shambles," labor MP and brexit committee chair hilary benn said on tuesday, questioning davis’ abilities as brexit chief negotiator. Scotland’s leader nicola sturgeon called the unveiling a "turning point in the brexit negotiations".

Lewandowski dispute: salihamidzic rebukes “clueless” hamann

Lewandowski dispute: salihamidzic rebukes 'clueless' hamann

"I don’t think robert lewandowski is a problem for bayern munchen, but didi hamann is a problem for sky," said sports director hasan salihamidzic after munich’s 3:1 win over FC schalke 04 in the bundesliga, referring to the former bayern professional and current sky expert. "The people at sky should think about didi hamann," salihamidzic recommended to the TV station.

Hamann replied via the broadcaster’s app: "if you want to discuss this in a serious and serious way, you can and should do so. But what I don’t understand is when it goes into the personal area – I didn’t understand that. This is something where I have to maintain professionalism and respectability as FC bayern."

Salihamidzic had spoken both at the sky microphone and later in the mixed zone of a "campaign" that hamann (45) was leading against the munich attacker. "I have to single out robert lewandowski in our good team because he is simply a leader. He runs in front, he is our top scorer, he is one of the best stormers in the world. When someone criticizes him like didi hamann, you just can’t let it stand," salihamidzic (42) said.
