Personally, I have always admired Angela Merkel’s political skills, even if I have not necessarily agreed with her policies.

If Angela Merkel has indeed changed as much as this article infers, then perhaps Europe has a new set of risks? Without consensus, surely her power-base is weakened?

With Russia’s President Putin still strong and decisive, I worry about a new Angela Merkel.

Thoughts?

From the headline alone, I wonder if we can probably draw some conclusions on the author:

  • Sex
  • Age
  • Education
  • Social class
  • Ethnicity
  • Personality

Any thoughts?
