32. Good analysis
According to the Germans that I know, Merkel is doing quite a good job, and not far-right, though some of them would have preferred her opponent. At any rate, there is a big difference between her and people like the Kaczynskis. The latter come across as complete nutcases and I am glad to hear that many Poles are fed up with them.

However, I have to take some rueful issue with the remark:

'he (Schroeder) kept Germany out of the Iraq invasion. Considering that over 80% of the Germans were against that, no party to the left of the "Republikaner" or the NPD would have done differently.'

Alas, over 70% of the Brits were against it, and Tony still got us in!
