LABOUR’S COVER-UP: Gordon Brown’s Government ‘Urged’ Police Not To Investigate Muslim Grooming Gangs
Politicalite, November 13, 2018
GORDON Brown’s Labour Government allegedly urged Police Forces across the UK ‘not to investigate’ grooming gangs.
The Former North West Chief Prosecutor alleged that the Home Office ordered police to ignore grooming gang claims in 2008.
Nazir Afzal, told the BBC that in 2008 the Home Office sent a circular email to all police forces calling on them to not investigate the sexual exploitation of young girls in towns and cities across the UK.
Speaking on the Radio 4’s PM programme, Mr Afzal the former North West Prosecutor who reversed a Crown Prosecution Service decision and successfully prosecuted the notorious Rochdale rape gang, said: “You may not know this, but back in 2008 the Home office sent a circular to all police forces in the country saying ‘as far as these young girls who are being exploited in towns and cities, we believe they have made an informed choice about their sexual behaviour and therefore it is not for you police officers to get involved in.’”
UKIP’s Spokesman for Families and Children Alan Craig hit out and said: “If Mr Afzal is right then it indicates that the Home Office knew about rape gangs’ sexual crimes against underage girls across the country and wilfully instructed the police not to investigate the claims.
“This brings a whole new dimension to the case – it was thought that both local police and local councils had failed their duty of care, but if true, Mr Afzal’s claims would show that instructions to the police to ignore the claims came from the very top, at the heart of government in Whitehall.”
UKIP Leader Gerard Batten said: “I demand that the government investigate the claim made by Mr Afzal that the Home Office sent an email circular to all police forces calling on them to cease investigating claims related to the industrialised mass sexual exploitation of young girls across the country.
“If true, Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary at the time should be investigated for grossly failing her duty of care to countless young women across the length and breadth of the UK.”
Labour Leadership Contest: Bring On The Clowns
After their crushing defeat by Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party, instead of taking time to regroup and, as has been advised by serveral major figures on the centre left who stood down at the election because of the policies of far left leader Jeremy Corbyn, that they must reconnect with working class voters,the party factions are at each other’s throats already while the clowns bid for the leadership.
Bradford Abuser Gang Victim Claims Bradford, Rotherham, Rochdale Gangs ‘Linked’
One of the victims of a Bradford grooming gang has told the media that most of the girls at the children’s home where she was placed by local authority social workers were being sexually exploited by gangs of immigrant males. She called for a nationwide inquiry, alleging that numerous grooming and abuse gangs across the country — including the most notorious cases in Rochdale and Rotherham — are linked…

Dutch professor: “Western countries have never managed to integrate Muslims”
Dutch professor of sociology Ruud Koopmans has carried out a 20-year research project embracing several large scale studies on integration and assimilation, and at the end of it all he concludes that Muslims are more difficult to integrate than other migrant groups.

French writer and political philosopher Renaud Camus, who found fame (or notoriety perhaps,) as the first academic to propose the theory of the “Great Replacement (link goes to French language video),” aired his thoughts to news reporters about the wave of riots and civil unrest that has rocked France over the past two months, giving his opinion that the recent “Yellow Vest” protests are a grassroots reaction against the Davos elite who view working people as worthless “human Nutella.” (i.e. cheap, low grade products.)
Mr Camus warned there might be more substance to the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vests) movement, which organised the protests and, according to polls, is supported by 77 per cent of French people , than just dissatisfaction over a rise in fuel taxes, saying it was really about a “lack of respect by governments for the prople, being treated by managerial politics like an object, a simple product.
“A product, a producer, and a consumer all at once, a thing, a number, not a human being,” Camus said, echoing his view that the elite do noy see the masses as people, individuals with ambitions, concerns and their own intelligent view of the world. This attitude, he claims, is how elitists justify to themselves the destruction of communities as entire industries have been relocated to low labour cost economies, leaving behind what is usually described as ‘the gig economy,’ but which some have described as the ‘waiters and bartenders economy,’ because of the low quality and often part time work available to people rendered redundant as work has migrated east and south, while low skilled, poorly educated multitudes have migrated north and west.
Excoriating the globalist elites, whom Camus refers to as the “Davocracy,” an allusion to the annual World Economic Forum meetings in the Swiss town of Davos, where the rich and powerful arrive in their private jets to meet, enjoy fine foods, rare wines and high class prostitutes and make decisions like the one that is leading to the replacement of educated, intelligent Europeans who ask difficult questions with uneducated, illiterate third world immigrants who can easily be bought with free stuff, Camus claimed the global elites were advocates of the “Great Replacement” saying they supported “the change of people and civilisation for the sake of the industry of man, the economic system which produces the Undifferentiated Human Matter, the human Nutella, spreadable at will.”
Harsh words from Camus, but they contain more than a grain of truth one suspects.
The theory of the Great Replacement, which Camus states. not only refers to mass migration but to the easy and efficient interchangeability of goods as well as peoples (aka the throwaway society,) has been referred to by several prominent French figures including the Mayor of Béziers Robert Ménard, the Archbishop of Strasbourg Luc Ravel, and conservative politician Nicolas Dupont-Aignan.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has also made numerous references to a replacement of European people through migration, and has been widely attacked for his views by Cultural Marxist leaders leaders such as Barack Obama, Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron.
More recently, the French department of Mayotte, an island off the coast of Africa, highlighted the “replacement” of their indigenous peoples due to wave upon wave of illegal migrants in recent years. The first European outpost to be totally swamped by illegal immigrants might have been the Italian island of Lampedusa, had the nationalist coalition of Lega and Five Star not dealth a crushing defeat to the neo – liberal consensus parties of the Italian establishment in last years election.
It is happening in mainland France, Germany, Britain, Sweden, Netherlands, Belgium, and Spain. Only Italy, Hungary, Austria and Poland have so far shown and will to resist.
The developed world’s political and business elite, who roll up every year to attend the annual World Economic Forum (WEF) jamboree in Davos, Switzerland, are actually beginning to admit their push for globalisation and open bordershich with the help of leaders like Angela Merkel, Barack Obama, François Holland and hs successor Emmanuel Macron, have contributed to the worldwide populist backlash and the rejection of the mass integration and multiculturalism project, the aim of which was to create a global monoculture.
Harvard professor and former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund Kenneth Rogoff told Bloomberg that following WEF 2016 he “started to grow concerned” then-candidate Donald J. Trump would be elected president of the U.S.A. because the consensus among attendees of the elite gathering Mr. Trump could not possibly win.
“A joke I’ve told 1,000 people in the months since attending that years World Economic Forum is that the conventional wisdom of Davos is always wrong,” wisecracked the former IMF chief who is scheduled to attend Davos again this year along with some 3,000 other members of the political, business, media, and academic elite, most of whom are the same people that so confidently agreed Trump could not win the 2016 Presidential election.
“No matter how improbable, the event most likely to happen is the opposite of whatever the Davos consensus is,” he added.
Davos also failed to predict the rise of populism in Europe, Italy’s rejection of constitutional change that led to the resignation of Prime Minister Mattheo Renzi, or the UK voting to leave the European Union (EU) which Forbes described as the “populist revolt against Davos Man”.
“Davos Man” was coined by political scientist Samuel P. Huntington who described “these transnationals” as “[having] little need for national loyalty, view national boundaries as obstacles that thankfully are vanishing, and see national governments as residues from the past whose only useful function is to facilitate the elite’s global operations”.
One of the eight Oxford University academics set to attend the meeting, Ngaire Woods, dean of the Blavatnik School of Government, said, “There has to be some humility. For 30 years the elite have said, ‘We’re managing globalization, and we’re making it work for everyone’.”
“They cannot just keep repeating that,” added the frequent Davos visitor.
However, WEF founder Klaus Shwab has alleged that globalisation was an “easy scapegoat” for world angst, and argued that populism wasn’t the answer, saying, “We cannot just have populist solutions”.
With populism high on the agenda at Davos, one of the sessions will include a panel of psychologists offering thoughts on “cultivating appropriate emotions in a time of nationalist populism”.
Managing Director of the IMF Christine Lagarde, who was found guilty by French courts in December 2017 of criminal negligence in a case concerning the misappropriation of funds, said she wanted to “rehabilitate the appearance of globalism”. She said she wanted a “move toward globalization that has a different face, and which is not excluding people along the way”.
Lagarde will be chairing a session at Davos entitled: “Squeezed and Angry: How to Fix the Middle Class Crisis” along with hedge fund billionaire Ray Dalio. Days before the EU referendum vote, the French lawyer belittled Brexit voters by implying they were small-minded, called for a “united Europe”, and launched a report claiming a ‘Leave’ vote would lead to half a million job losses.
Also anticipated to attend the exclusive conclave is billionaire open borders activist and founder of the Open Society Foundations George Soros, who admitted involvement in engineering Europe’s Migrant Crisis, called national borders “an obstacle”, and has financial ties to the W. K. Kellogg Foundation.
Other notable attendees include a dozen members of the European Commission including Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström, who responded,“I do not take my mandate from the European people” when asked a question by a poverty campaigner regarding the unpopular (and now abandoned,) Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) deal between America and the EU, which was opposed by millions of Europeans.
The World Economic Forum (or the junior Bilderberg Group as some call it) held their annual jolly conference at the exclusive Alpine resort of Davos-Klosters where it will cost you €20 (about$22) for a cup of coffee because the locals have to keep chavs out somehow. Two thousand five hundred politicians, celebrities, and business leaders from all over the world gather every year for this “Bilderberg style” meeting. The delegates include 53 people who own as much wealth as the poorest half of the world’s population and representatives of over 1,000 of the multinational corporate businesses all of which are on record as supporting global government and open borders.
One of the most significant discussions held at this year’s Davos powerfest concerned the growing disconnect between middle and working class citizens and the power elites. Everywhere in the world one looks, citizens no longer trust their governments or the legal, medical and academic professions, the science & technology community, finance and the mainstream media:
“If this growing disconnect between governments and citizens is not fixed rapidly, there can be no legitimate, accountable and trusted global cooperation, problem solving or governance.” – WEF Everybody’s Business Report.
And so what have they done? In collaboration with Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon and other internet giants our governments and business elites have embraced the idea of using censorship to suppress ideas and opinions which challenge the official narrative. A UK government promotion, The Integrity Initiative has been exposed as working to ensure any item expressing support for the Assad regime in Syria, or criticising military interventions aimed at effecting ‘regime change’ are made invisible by blocking them in internet searches, ‘shadow – banning’ the content posted by certain organisations and individuals and rather than promoting the truth, which in the case of Syria is that bad as the Assad regime may be, what would replace them, as ISIS have shown, would be even worse, actively suppressing accurate reporting in the public domain and replacing it with politically convenient misinformation.
In their minds of course, we the punters are far too stupid to see through such a ruse and will accept what we are being told and allow the globalisation project to continue unchecked.
“Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty”, according to The German Chancellor, who told an enthusiatic audience of party members audience in Berlin that nation states must not listen to the concerns of their citizens when it comes to questions of immigration, borders, or even sovereignty.
Hausfrau – Volksfuhrer Merkel – something familiar about that salute?

If you are thinking this was something said by Adolf Hitler at a Nazi party rally in the 1930s, you would be wrong, the words were spoken by German Chancellor Angela Merkel at an event organised by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Berlin. Merkel has announced she won’t seek re-election in 2021 and it seems she now feels sade to come out of the closet and show her true colours in order to push the globalist agenda to its disturbing conclusion of creating a totalitarian world government before she stands down.
“In an orderly fashion of course,” Merkel joked, attempting to lighten the mood. But Merkel has always had a tin ear for comedy and she soon launched into a dark speech in support of authoritarianism and the dominance of an academic elite, condemning those in her own party who believe the German government should have listened to public opinion and refused to sign the controversial UN migration pact which seeks to make migration a human right and create a borderless world:
“There were [politicians] who believed that they could decide when these agreements are no longer valid because they are representing The People”.
“[But] the people are just individuals who are living in a country, they are not a group who define themselves as the [German] people,” she stressed, showing the self righteousness of any Nazi leader or senior officer in Kaiser Bill’s WW1 regime.
Merkel has previously accused critics of the UN Global Compact for Safe and Orderly Migration of not being patriotic, saying “That is not patriotism, because patriotism is when you include others in German interests and accept win-win situations”.
Her words, while ignoring the problems wrought on German society by the consequences of her “open doors” immigration policy, echo recent comments by the deeply unpopular French President Emmanuel Macron who stated in a Remembrance Day speech that “patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism [because] nationalism is treason.”
The French president’s words went down like the proverbial lead zeppelin with the French population, which is more volatile than the German people, and not only caused his approval rating to plunge even further, but also exacerbated the yellow vests protests which have brought civil unrest to France. French cities have experienced problems similar to those of Germany since the mass immigration crisis began in 2015.
Macron, former Goldman Sachs executive who was given a quadruple charisma by – pass before being shoehorned into the presidency, is now proving so utterly devoid of leadership qualities and is totally incapable of dealing with growing protests in France. In spite of that he has not lost his typically French penchant for delusional self – aggrandising and recently told the Bundestag that France and Germany should be at the center of the emerging New World Order.
“The Franco-German couple [has]the obligation not to let the world slip into chaos and to guide it on the road to peace”.
“Europe must be stronger… and win more sovereignty,” he went on to demand, just like Merkel, that EU member states surrender national sovereignty to Brussels over “foreign affairs, migration, and development” as well as giving “an increasing part of our budgets and even fiscal resources”.
Merkel meanwhile, has pronounced Donald Trump a lame duck president and despite her own position as a lame duck chancellor leading a minority government, has pronounced herself the new de facto leader of the free world.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and France’s Emmanuel Macron, together they planned to turn Europe into a multicultural utopia, both triggered civil unrest in their homelands.
The United Nation’s Global Compact for migration has sent shock waves through most of the nations in the developed world. Since being discussed and adopted by leaders and opinion makers from around the world at the Marrakech conference in Morocco this month, it has had a very divisive effect around the world and attracted hostility from both the public and their respective governments as wannabe global government The United Nations Organisation seeks to make migration a human right and a vahicle for the replacement of educated westerners in their own native countries with the illiterate masses of the third world.
A clear trend that has emerged since the migration crisis began in Europe after the unelected bureaucrats of the EU imposed an ‘open doors’ immigration policy, ordering members stated to admit anyone who arrived at border control points even if they did not have basic identification documents. Eastern Europe plus Italy, Austria and the Baltic States are resisting this latest push towards Globalism while more prospers Northern and Western European countries alining with the globalist overlords of the corporate – financial cartel.
So which countries are in and who is out? Well the most prominent and influential refusenik is Presodent Trump of the USA, President Putin of Russia and Chairman Xi of China did not even bother to comment on the proposal, their nations will continue to be highly selective about who they admit. And most of the other large poulation nations, India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Nigeria, Brazil, Bangladesh, Philippines and Ethiopia being some examples, are such unconscienable shitholes nobody in their right mind would want to move there to ‘seek a better life.’
Portugal and Spain, both with left-leaning socialist governments, already stated that will sign the pact when the time comes. However both have very unstable minority governments and the withdrawal of support from the ruling coalition by a minor party could change the picture.
In France, the unpopular French president Macron already called the deal ‘a good text’, hinting that he will sign the deal. Macron has more pressing problems right now of course, with the ‘Yellow Vests’ protests causing widespread civil unrest and one of the main causes of discontent among the working and middle class being mass immigration and related social problems.
Across the channel, astoundingly given her problems with Brexit, UK prime minister Theresa May confirmed she would sign the document, as for Ireland, the Irelands prime minister, the pouf Varadkar, recently celebrated that “since 2011 about 120,000 people have become Irish citizens, strengthening our economy, running our public services and enriching our society” clearing any doubt he will keep letting people in through the back door.
As for the Benelux countries, Belgium’s prime minister confirmed he will sign the deal, after much confusion and a heated debate around the pact, the nationalist N-VA party leaving the government puts the ruling coalition under pressure, making Charles Michel the head of a minority government. For several years, since a bust up between the French speaking Waloons in the south and the Dutch speaking Phlegms in the north, the country has teetered on the edge of becoming two separate states.
The Netherlands and Luxembourg are also expected to sign the deal though with strong oposition from rising nationalist parties. Germany’s government under Merkel already backed the controversial document, not much surprises from the same leader who opened Europe’s doors to millions of migrants in 2015, but Merkel too heads a fragile coalition as anti – immigration nationalist party AfD (Alternatif fur Deutschland) continue to gain strength. In her current position Merkel cannot pass controversial legislation and dare not risk an election as the AfD could become the largest party in the German assembly.
The Nordic countries, led by the testicularly deficient Swedes, are expected to join the pact, despite the social problems already experienced by Sweden due to uncontrolled immigration, Norway could surprise pundits, while Denmark has refused, with Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen stating “The government would never dream of signing something that weakens our ability to implement the strict immigration policies we have in Denmark.” However, Mr Rasmussen will be attending the conference after Denmark’s immigration minister said she wouldn’t attend the gathering, showing a big divide across the Danish government as well.
All 3 Baltic countries rejected the deal, as well as the Visegrad group comprising Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary, following Austria’s example. The populist Italian prime minister Matteo Salvini shunned the deal too while Switzerland had a late withdrawal from the pact after lawmakers insisted they have the final say on the matter.
In the Balkan region, however, Bulgaria already said it would be out of the pact, Slovenia, Croatia and Montenegro already showed themselves interested in joining the deal, Bosnia and Albania already signed the document while Serbia Macedonia, Romania and Greece remain ambiguous at this point.
All in all it looks like being a narrow victory for common sense against the dark forces of globbalism and their efforts to create a world government.

The United Nations special conference to endorse the controversial pact on global migration, which seeks to make migration a human right, opened in Morocco today. In spite of a number of high profile refusals to sign up to the pact, including the U.S.A. where President Donald Trump denounced the pact in very strong terms, the wannabe global government that is the United Nations Organisation is pressuring smaller nations to accept uncontolled immigration from third world nations as a universal principle. Australia, Austria, the Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Hungary, Latvia, Poland and Slovakia have also walked away. And though we have heard no comment either way from them, you can bet your life savings that Russia, China and Japan will not be falling over themselves to support this crackpot idea. A clue as to how toxic this proposal truly is lies in the refusal of Australia: when a country with a political elite as effete and emasculated as Australia’s politically correct poofters finds it too much to swallow, it is bound to be good for global corporations and high raking bureaucrats and terrible for ordinary people.
The 32-page Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration was finalised at the UN in July after 18 months of talks. It will be formally adopted at the start of the two-day conference in Marrakesh led by German Chancellor and arch globalist Angela Merkel and supported by France’s Emmanuel Macron, whose globalist friendly policies have triggered massive civil unrest in French cities and inspired a protest movement which threatens the French government. Macron himself will not attend as he must prioritise dealing with the “yellow vest” protests at home, but is sending his secretary of state for foreign affairs to back the pact. That will go down like the proverbial lead zeppelin with the protestors.
U.S. President Donald Trump was the first to declare his rejection of the pact, describing it as it the surrender of national sovereignty to a supra national body of unelected bureaucvrats. He said, “Migration should not be governed by an international body unaccountable to our own citizens. Ultimately, the only long-term solution to the migration crisis is to help people build more hopeful futures in their home countries. Make their countries great again.”
Mr. Trump’s pronouncements triggered so many snowflakes it may have been responsible for the freak winter storms experienced in parts of the united states early this year. It also agitated both the mainstream media and globalist politicians.
Representatives of Spain, Greece, Denmark and Portugal will attend and back the vote,
Belgium’s liberal premier Charles Michel won the support of parliament to back the accord, but he was left leading a minority government on Sunday after the Flemish nationalist party quit his coalition over the pact.
The Flemish nationalist party, New Flemish Alliance (N-VA) sensationally quit the shaky coalition after a weekend of crisis talks, prompting Michel to announce he would travel to Marrakesh to sign the controversial compact representing a minority government.
Stepping down as interior minister on Sunday, the N-VA’s Jan Jambon told local media “I think that, formally speaking, we are stepping down. We said that if the coalition goes to Marrakesh, it will be without us.”
It is safe to assume the pact will not be ratified by the Belgian government, if it is presented to the National Assembly and defeated the government is likely to collapse, leading to further gains for nationalists in the ensuing election.
Belgium is among a group of seven nations which the UN describes in that mealy mouthed language of diplomacy, as “engaged in further internal deliberations” over the accord, with Bulgaria, Estonia, Italy, Israel, Slovenia and Switzerland also falling into this category.
The UN special representative for migration, Louise Arbour, on Friday scolded those nations which have decided not to sign the compact. She said: “There are many different issues at stake: economic, to maximise the positive effects of migration on economies of host countries, on countries of origin, on the migrants themselves, on communities which receive them.
Surprisingly (OK, I’m being sarcastic) she did not mention the threat to free speech and press freedom.
But perhaps a bigger clue as to its toe-curling, achingly right-on, surrender-monkey awfulness is offered by the countries which are planning on signing up to it. These include Leo Varadkar’s Ireland and Justin “President Bieber” Trudeau’s Canada: arguably the two Western nations you’d least want to be living in right now because they are currently in the hands of politically correct bedwetters bent on destroying every last vestige of their national identity and replacing it with some kind of squishy, globalist melting pot where people of all colours and creeds hold hands under a rainbow.
Another country which is planning on signing it is the United Kingdom. Which is bizarre to the point of incomprehensibility when you discover what this UN Global Compact on Migration entails.
Essentially it’s a globalist masterplan for making migration easier. Much, much easier. But it will also require signatories to enact measures curtailing the right to free speech by criminalising criticism of migration or migrant communities.
One of the things that has the global government fans really scared is the wave of nationalism surging round the globe as a reaction to UN sponsored mass migration from third world to first world nations. The elites, living on their country estates or in their gated communities love the idea of mass migration, the people who must live alongside the lawless, uneducated elements of migrant communities are not so keen. And New Media gives voices speaking for those people a platform, which in turn drums up support for nationalist political movements. The UN’s solution (totally predictable if you know anything about the authoritarian Modus Operandi of the United Nations, is to make it illegal to talk about this problem.
Read the relevant section of the UN Global Compact on Migration by clicking the link or look at the snippets below to get the flavour of the thing:
OBJECTIVE 17: Eliminate all forms of discrimination and promote evidence-based public discourse to shape perceptions of migration
33. We commit to eliminate all forms of discrimination, condemn and counter expressions, acts and manifestations of racism, racial discrimination, violence, xenophobia and related intolerance against all migrants in conformity with international human rights law. We further commit to promote an open and evidence-based public discourse on migration and migrants in partnership
with all parts of society, that generates a more realistic, humane and constructive perception in this regard. We also commit to protect freedom of expression in accordance with international law, recognizing that an open and free debate contributes to a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of migration.
To realize this commitment, we will draw from the following actions:
a) Enact, implement or maintain legislation that penalizes hate crimes and aggravated hate crimes targeting migrants, and train law enforcement and other public officials to identify, prevent and respond to such crimes and other acts of violence that target migrants, as well as to provide medical, legal and psychosocial assistance for victims.
The excuse offered by defenders of this outrageous document and global totalitarian government in general is that it is not legally binding. Unfortunaely that’s the excuse globalists always use to give a veneer of respectability to their Cultural Marxist global initiatives. The same happened with the UN’s Agenda 21 in the early years of the century and before you knew what was happening Barack Obama was declaring that if you collected te rainwater that fell on your roof you were actually guilty of sealing the government’s water. At the 1992 Rio Earth Summit leaders of nations and organisations signed up to it because they were led to believe it was not a binding agrement but a statement of intent. But it very quickly became clear that watermelon politicians (green on the outside, red on the inside (h/t J Delingpole,) green lobbyists, and left-leaning pressure groups were using it to force t, and scare stories about imminent climate catastrophe to boost support for policies that benefitted certain agenda, to the detriment of people living on moderate incomes.
Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, ambused by reporters as she was leaving a meeting of the Christian Democratic Union in Berlin early Monday said of the deal she claims to have made with coalition partners CSU, “We share a common goal in migration policy. We want to order, control and limit migration to Germany.”
When did this become Germany’s goal and who exactly has agreed to it? And what about those refugee camps (or disembarkation points as Merkel prefers to call them,) in Africa, with no African having agreed to host them?
The New York Times reports Merkel, to Survive, Agrees to Border Camps for Migrants.
Chancellor Angela Merkel, who staked her legacy on welcoming hundreds of thousands of migrants into Germany, agreed on Monday to build border camps for asylum seekers and to tighten the border with Austria in a political deal to save her government.
Although the move to appease the conservatives exposed her growing political weakness, Ms. Merkel will limp on as chancellor. For how long is unclear. The nationalism and anti-migrant sentiment that has challenged multilateralism elsewhere in Europe is taking root — fast — in mainstream German politics.
“Her political capital is depleted,” said Thomas Kleine-Brockhoff, director of the Berlin office of the German Marshall Fund. “We are well into the final chapter of the Merkel era.”
Anti – immigration, Eurosceptic AfD party are the only winners, all Merkel can do is take the CSU and SDP down with her.
Eurointelligence (a paywalled site) made some pertinent comments.
It is pointless to discuss who is the relative winner of this standoff. Both will lose because they have demonstrated that they cannot work together anymore. What it also shows is that attempts to solve the refugee problem, still the number one political issue in Germany, are secondary to the rivalries between CDU and CSU and inside the CSU. The beneficiary of this mess is the AfD. And there are state elections in Bavaria in October.
The deal buys a truce that will last until October. We agree with Berthold Kohler’s assessment in FAZ when he writes that Seehofer shares a large portion of the blame but not all of it. The CSU will increasingly blame Merkel – especially if they do badly at the elections. And the rest of the country has learned that the only way the two parties papered over the crisis is through the Kafkaesque legal fiction which they agreed last night.
But things are not quite as straightforward as spin doctors would have us believe, CDU and CSU may have agreed to this deal but what about the other coalition partner, the SDP?
Germany’s conservatives have finally found common ground on migration policy, but skepticism is rife. The proposed measures have also raised concerns over the future of the open-border Schengen Area.
Now the ball is in the center-left court of the Social Democrats (SPD) — the other player in the grand coalition. Without a green light from the SPD, new measures can’t be implemented. SPD party leader Andrea Nahles said there was “still a lot that needs to be discussed.”
In forming the long-awaited new German government earlier this year, the SPD made its opposition to closed migrant centers at borders clear — a stance which was reiterated by several SPD delegates on Tuesday.
“Transit centers are in no way covered by the coalition agreement,” Aziz Bozkurt, the SPD’s expert on migration, told German newspaper Die Welt, adding that the camps were “above the SPD’s pain threshold.”
“The SPD issued a clear rejection of closed camps,” Kevin Kühnert, head of the SPD’s youth wing, Jusos, told the dpa news agency.
So the SDP cannot possibly countenance this deal? What kind of spanners can they throw into the works?
The repercussions of the planned border controls could be felt well beyond the borders of Bavaria. Now the future of open-border travel across the 26 member states of the Schengen Zone could be threatened by stricter controls on the Bavarian-Austrian border.
Responding to the German conservatives’ deal, Vienna said it was prepared to take unspecified measures to “protect” Austria’s southern borders with Italy and Slovenia if its neighbor turns back migrants.
not only does the SPD have a say in this matter, so does Austria.
Merkel repeatedly makes deals that are not hers to make. In fact, this crisis stems from precisely that fact. “We can do this,” she likes to say.
Well, no you can’t Angie, and didn’t.
It will be amusing to see what logic SPD uses to agree to send migrants back to Austria and to refugee camps in Africa when no African nation is willing to even consider the idea.
New German Coalition in Peril as Potential Partners Clash over 200,000 Annual Migrant Limit
Reports that German Chancellor Angela Merkel has agreed a proposal from coalition partner and leader of the Christian Social Union (CSU) Horst Seehofer to limit the number of asylum seekers in Germany to 200,000 per year to secure a ruling coalition may be somewhat premature. Other coalition partners are not as positive on the policy.

German Elections: Anti – EU party AfD 3rd In Polls
Elections take place in Germany this Sunday, September 24, for the federal assembly (Bundestag) and the presidency (Chancellor). While Angela Merkel looks set to win a fourth term as Chancellor and the most likely outcome of the election is another “Grand Coalition” between Christian Democrats and Social Democrats that coalition will be a much-weakened if late polls are to be believed.
