In about a month’s time, there’ll be a general election here in Germany. A fruitful time for Germans who want to get their opinions onto the placards of the various candidates tied to lamp-posts. Not seen one yet, but somewhere in this city, there’ll be a Hitler moustache marker-penned onto a right wing candidate’s face. I did see this, though. Two different posters for the same candidate, Wolfgang Something-or-other, ripped in such a way to make his forehead look huuuuuuuuuuge.
As for the big job, Gerhard Schröder seems to be on his way out, and it looks like there’ll be a female chancellor for the first time in German history. That woman will be Angela Merkel, leader of the CDU (the more right wing, conservative party), and someone who always reminds me of Peter Kay’s Keith Lard character.
