Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Martin Hohmann expelled
Even when it ws not a huge majority, it was enough to get the 2/3 quorum and expell this guy (as reported here, here and here.
from the CDU parliament-group. They also think about starting a hearing to have him completely out of the whole party. Which might be a good thaugt. It won't help anything, he is elected he can stay as a single member of the parliament (Bundestag) for the next 3.5 years til the next election. He just won't have any (official) contact to the CDU group.
But it might be a signal to CDU bigheads like Roland Koch who alsways flirt with the very right side of their party and the political spectrum in the whole. Maybe they'll have to face the fact that Angela Merkel, the actual elected leader of the CDU is gaining the power that should be hers, because until now she hasn't got it.
Question is - when will the remaining (minimum) 28 sympathisants of him leave or what will they make?
The CDU might suffer from this scandal some time - I hope as long as possible and I hope too, people see again the real differences between the politics a CDU stands for and the SPD stands for.
