Minister of transport Scheuer is hit by the toll debacle started. Good side effect For its image correction, he is now planning a railway reform.
Federal Minister of transport, Andreas Scheuer of the CSU pet for cameras: Andreas Scheuer, and Deutsche Bahn is the smack man, by the Federal government. Two-thirds of the citizens want, according to surveys his resignation, even 60 percent of the respondents are CSU members. Eventually, the man into the Covenant with his hasty contracts, claims for damages in the amount of more than half a billion euros.
That was a serious mistake. But at least indirectly it has a positive impact, a kind of collateral benefit: never before has a Minister of transport for rail and Cycling has made so much money loose. Clearly, climate protection has high economic activity. And the vehemence with which Scheuer improvements in the track claims, is due to the pressure he's under to the toll Disaster.
He knows that he must provide the CSU leader Markus Söder good reasons, stick to it. Scheuer needs success more than any other politician in Germany. The car industry is not able to serve. Therefore, the car a friend of shy sets on the web. This is good, even if the reasons are wrong.
For the current problems of the rail is just shy responsible. Remember predecessor as his party friends Ramsauer and Dobrindt, the later the car lobby-chief Wissmann (CDU) or social Democrats like Müntefering and Tiefensee. All have driven the removal of rails, Connections, and staff, and the international Expansion of the group. The railway-bald bat Mehdorn was under the Red-Green group chief.
shy since the reunification, the first transport Minister who wants to reform a great track that could correct the wrong orientation. The opportunity comes not again. This does not mean that you should shy the toll-harm go through. But the Opposition and the SPD should use the pressure to push him in the right direction: towards a good path, away from the preference of car and plane.Updated Date: 16 January 2020, 09:00
