    Interesting, and worth discussion. But it's not really on-topic, though, is it?

    She at least got one step closer to forming a government.

    German lawmakers reach breakthrough in talks to form a new government

    It is easier for the centrist parties to use this kind of legislation to ban those parties with which they disagree. While that is not the intent of the legislation, such legislation generally ends up being used like a hammer when these centrist parties find their seats under threat.
    German history has proven the opposite. The stakes for banning a political party are very high (and the German Constitutional Court has recently even put them higher). The AfD is in no danger of being banned for the racist remarks of its' politicians, otherwise the NPD would have been banned long time ago.

    Nor can the AfD playing the victim card here. If you want to be seen as a party right of the CDU, yet nowhere near to the NPD, you should not have politicians in your party who call other people "Half-breed n*ggers".

    SPD breaking promise not to do another coalition with Merkel. Polls show majority oppose this Grand Coalition.

    Be careful vouching for any politician . What are any / most of them behind the facade .

    I suggest that there are more self serving than we realise .
