‘Katie Wagner is Bayreuth’s Angela Merkel’main
An interesting analogy in Der Tagesspiegel.
Katharina Wagner, after ten stormy years, simply bulldozes her way to survival. She’s not concerned about being liked. She just wants to keep her seat.
There is, however, one critical difference. Merkel is elected by public vote. Katie is a hereditary autocrat with no accountability or democratic legitimacy.
