Fascinating piece of graffiti in the corridor of a Berlin house. It says ‘Social Democratic Party, the election lyers’. Apparently the German electorate notices that and is scandalised by it. ‘This is not because we are German, but because these are the rules’. Until two weeks ago I’d have thought this odd, admirable, somewhat too good to be true, and even funny. Something that would never occur in Bulgaria. But now, 9 days after the protests against the newly elected government began, I am glad that not only German citizens say something when a ruling party doesn’t fulfil its pre-election promises.
