The driving force behind it is  Katrin Göring-Eckardt, leader of the Green faction in the Bundestag.

    The glamorous Katy is doing something right! This has to be applauded – the German Green Party has too often stood for unrealistic demands and preposterous political positions.

  • Gustavo says:

    She should be running for chancellor next year.

  • Dander says:

    I doubt the Greens get many votes except from Hipsters and those in Islington.

    • The governor of one of Germany’s largest and most prosperous states, Baden-Württemberg, is a member of the Green Party. Nationally, they hold about 9% of the vote and have a significant influence on the government.
