Looks like Merkel is due a kicking.

Bild reported today that Horst Seehofer, the leader of the CSU in Bavaria which rules in tandem with her own CDU party, says that he is so alarmed at the “domestic political situation” that the chancellor has no choice but to about turn.

The weekend battering she took in her home state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania – her party was pushed into third place by the anti-immigrant Alternative for Deutschland (AfD) – is set to be repeated in Berlin in ten days time.

Bild said high level sources within the CDU and CSU have told it that Seehofer wants a guarantee of no more than 200,000 migrants a year – a third less than Germany is expecting in 2016.
