Pretty best enemies: is the Habeck-Lindner-Zoff driving us even deeper into the crisis? | politics

It was a photo that radiated harmony and cohesion…

Almost a year ago, Robert Habeck (53, Greens) and Christian Lindner (43, FDP) sent a selfie into the world. Then they smiled with Annalena Baerbock (41, Greens) and Volker Wissing (52, FDP) in the new era: an alliance of Greens and FDP – with the SPD.

Message: We stick together, we want to lead Germany into a good future.

It’s over! The harmony is gone.

Even more: Habeck and Lindner are pretty much best enemies now! They attack each other, gossip about each other – avoid each other.

► Habeck announced new aid for the economy in front of managers on Tuesday, justifying the nuclear power plant shutdown. Lindner, on the other hand, warned to save, wants to run the nuclear power plant until 2024. Joint performance on stage? Both didn’t want to!

► Lindner accuses Habeck of being poorly prepared in meetings, getting tired after 10 p.m. Habeck thinks Lindner is arrogant and overbearing. In the Bundestag last week, the two did not even shake hands.

► Lindner is jealous of Habeck’s high popularity ratings. Habeck is frustrated because Lindner is Minister of Finance – he would like to be that himself.

► In addition, the different lifestyles: Habeck (jeans type, curly head) likes to take off his shoes during meetings. For Lindner (type tailor-made suit) no style. Habeck, in turn, considers Lindner to be a slick lobby politician and considered his Sylt wedding embarrassing.

How dangerous is the rift for the traffic light and the country?

Economics Prof. Monika Grimm (51) considers the situation to be “worrying”. The conflict increases “the uncertainty of all companies and households at a time when clear government decisions should settle the way out of the crisis.”

And ex-Secretary of State Thomas Bareiß (47, CDU) poisoned: “From the honeymoon straight to the War of the Roses. Germany is experiencing a sad spectacle here. Our country deserves better.”
