    The major parties don’t provide much of a choice – Germany isn’t alone there! – so there will be AfD protest votes, but I would guess that Merkel’s party will scrape back in. If that happens and they lose a lot of seats they may elect a new leader – someone more in tune with popular sentiment – at some point.

And it won’t matter when the German flag is replaced by Mohamed’ black battle flag either.
