    So, most of the reporting in the UK on the German coalition talks have been lacking in one important fact, that the current talks are only the exploratory talks so the Greens can take it to their conference next week for approval to enter into formal coalition talks.

    It seems that the extra few days have not made much difference and the talks are close to collapsing as the parties have missed a second self-imposed deadline to move on to formal coalition talks. Immigration is the main point of contention, along with climate change. If the talks do collapse, despite all the talk last week of a snap election, Merkel could look at forming a minority Government and work on gaining support on individual policy points, though this will make for an unstable Government.

    A further impact on any breakdown in talks is on the EU, not just Brexit negotiations, but also on day to day EU business. The EU are starting to show signs of getting jittery over the situation in Germany with a number of officials expressing concern at the outcome, and one suggesting that the EU will be damaged if no agreement is reached.

    This comes on top of other crises within the EU, namely the threat of Hungary to veto any sanctions that the EU want to bring against Poland for not succumbing to the EU demands on internal matters.

    This morning I saw on Facebook a thread on :Things your mother told you”. I thought of this one.
