A harsh accusation in the traffic light makes you sit up and take notice. But it remains to be seen whether the Greens will change their migration course, comments Christian Deutschländer.
Coalitions are an arduous thing, sometimes the anger has to come out. This has not only been known since the CDU/CSU and the FDP once gave each other animal and vegetable names ("Wildsau", "cucumber troupe"). But the latest accusation in the traffic light coalition makes people sit up and take notice. The FDP classifies the Greens as a "security risk". Not a hint of fun, but a massive, profound accusation that should actually initiate the end of such a coalition. That hurts. Especially because it is true in migration policy.
The Greens and migration: What else is needed as a wake-up call?
When will the Greens finally change course? Blind and deaf, large parts of the party reacted to alarm calls from the district administrators and mayors, as if they were subordinate Hanswursts who were just acting stupidly with their overcrowded gymnasiums and schools. No agitation with dramatically increasing number of arrivals.

Only ritualized mock debates as a reaction to the AfD's swelling poll ratings, which are of course a consequence of ignorance in asylum policy. What else is needed in terms of wake-up calls, warning calls, bangs for federal politics?
Robert Habeck wakes up from the asylum default - it will be a showdown
The FDP attack and, at the same time, the poisonous Groko offer of the finally present Union seem to awaken at least one from the asylum default: Robert Habeck is suggesting a new course for his Greens. Still quite vague and too late.
It will be a test of strength: the Vice-Chancellor, battered after his debacle over the heating law, his much more pragmatic election campaigners in Hesse and Bavaria, plus Green local politicians – all this against the door-to-fundis. Whether this will be enough to steer the party into an internally unpopular turn is completely open.
