German MPs ‘drawing up plans’ to close borders in challenge to Merkel’s refugee policy

German MPs have reportedly drawn up plans to close the country’s borders in a direct challenge to Angela Merkel’s refugee policy.

The move is the latest threat to the Schengen Agreement on border-free travel in continental Europe.

A group of 188 MPs including many from Mrs Merkel’s own Christian Democrat party have prepared laws to fence off sections of the border.

They say they will put them forward if Mrs Merkel does not come up with a solution to the refugee crisis within weeks.

    Blockade the highways or make several do-it-yourself road spikes out of flat iron pieces and scatter them on roads entering Germany.

    Leave the politicians, courts and media out of it. They have proven themselves untrustworthy and out of touch.

    (Also, trip wires and sharpened, buried sticks provide a nice welcome for invaders on foot).

        Parts of eastern Croatia still have mines in place that are leftovers from the Balkan conflicts of the 90’s. At least they’re not going to waste

    “Events” are too fast catching up with Merkel for her liking.

    Angela Merkel does not want to complete her full term as German chancellor and is planning to resign before elections due in 2017, according to reports.
    The German leader is aiming to become the first chancellor to leave of her own accord since 1949, and is interested in a new role as United Nations Secretary-General, or President of the European Council, Spiegel magazine reported.
    …Spiegel, which is usually well informed about German politics, claims it is well known among her colleagues that she does not want a fourth term, and is considering quitting ahead of the 2017 elections.
