That tired old SPD.
With three tired old SPD guys trying to decide which one of them will have to be the one tired old SPD guy who will have to be the contender in next year’s election against the ridiculously popular Angela Merkel.
So like one of them, former Finance Minister Peer Steinbrück, threw his hat into the ring yesterday, sort of.
His angle? Eat the banks. Split their investment and retail units and have them create their own rescue fund and make them be good and nice again like they used to be in the past (I guess) als die Welt noch in Ordnung war (when the world was still in order).
Been there, done that. Yawn already. Bring out the next stooge and let’s get him over with, too.
“Banks are service providers and not betting shops.”
