Merkel don’t want to know, according to her, puts a bomb under the schengen agreement. Sunday had to be clear whether Seehofer for that reason, the government would drop. It was a thriller.

Seehofer announced already to four o’clock in the afternoon a declaration. After that, it was a press conference at seven o’clock. That was postponed. All that time he was together with his party leadership, where he is the terror within the conflict, with Merkel keen on put.
