A New Chancellor

I’m immensely glad to see that Germany has a new chancellor in the so called ‘iron frau’ Angela Merkel. It’s superb that they’ve chosen a woman conservative – because it’s exactly what Germany needs. It really does feel like a breath of fresh air, Gerhard Schröder despite his early promise really hasn’t delivered what Germany needed: real reform to industry and industrial relations, a stronger hand in Europe (rather than following the French agenda) and rejuvenating the German spirit as a single country, rather than still seeing itself as divided, even though it’s been over 16 years since the physical divide was removed.

I’ve got high hopes that Bundeskanzlerin Merkel will be a reformer, of Germany tackling these issues and a real leader in Europe that moves the EU forward in a positive structured way.
