More and more the impression arises that there is only an alliance of convenience between the CDU and CSU. Kohl’s former spokesman Friedhelm Ost sees the end of the political marriage.
Munich – Markus Söder is likely to feel a bit like the secret winner of the federal election despite the Union’s election failure. Especially since the CSU boss knows defeats only as fans of 1. FC Nürnberg, but not on a political level.
The big sister CDU is currently badly battered on the floor, her self-discovery process should take some time. A turning point is imminent. It is not even foreseeable who will then occupy the management positions.
As a result, Söder’s chances should not be bad to claim even more power as a rock in the future. Even if his party also performed poorly historically in the election. What he knows how to conceal well. So now his big hour could strike.
CDU politician recommends separation from CSU: “Think about liberation from burden”
Yes, if the CDU doesn’t listen to Friedhelm Ost. The former government spokesman for Helmut Kohl recommends that the party cut the cord to the CSU in view of the disputes that can no longer be denied. In an article for the “Blog der Republik” portal, the 79-year-old writes: “The CDU should now think seriously about getting rid of the CSU burden and establish itself in Bavaria too.”
It is important not to let the little sister show you: “In any case, the CDU must no longer allow the tail wagging the dog.” Ost is particularly bad at talking about the Bavarian father. Because the fact that the parties presented themselves “full of disharmony and insidiousness” is mainly due to his behavior: “The main person responsible for this is without a doubt Markus Söder.”
CDU politician recommends separation from CSU: “Söder accompanied Laschet flight in Kamikaze style”
The proud Franconian was, as is well known, abruptly slowed down by the CDU federal executive committee on his apparently longed-for trip to the Chancellery. Apparently, he never got over the fact that Armin Laschet was preferred to him in the chancellor candidate freestyle.
Or as Ost describes it graphically: “Söder himself acted as a co-pilot for Laschet, but he accompanied the flight towards the Chancellery in a kamikaze manner. In bad Brutus manner, he used enormous hypocrisy to push the CDU candidate out of politics. ”The journalist also mentions the“ evil filth on television and other media ”and calls the CSU boss“ would-be epigone of Franz-Josef Strauss ” .
Admittedly, Söder could not “put himself in the limelight as eloquently as his great role model (…). But he’s just as loud, a champion of hypocrisy and a bad cardsharp. Even if Ost explicitly emphasized the Junge Union’s “fine feel” when Söders visited at the weekend.

CDU politician recommends separation from CSU: “Bavarian regional party must not set the tone for the Union”
For him, however, it is not just a matter of highlighting Söder’s part in the decline of Laschet and the imbalance of the Union, but of encouraging his own party to perceive the past few months as a hello-awake experience. “This Bavarian regional party with national political aspirations must not continue to set the tone for the entire Union, act as a political guardian and intrigue against the CDU,” he grumbled.
Then comes his bitter realization: “The term sister party has long since ceased to apply to the real relationship.” But there is also good news for the CDU; 5% or more will come may not be safe. In view of the erosion that Söder and his CSU have to accept in the meantime, the CDU in Bavaria could become a real alternative. “
CDU politician recommends separation from CSU: “A barrel of ugly messes more than overflowed”
Above all, the strength of the little sister in the Free State, which has practically had a free ticket for the government bank for decades, probably deterred the Christian Democrats from taking such a drastic step. Will that really change and the rip cord will be pulled?
For East, after all the more recent experiences, it is important that the future CDU leadership “should not be dependent on the mercy of the Bavarian regional party”. Because: “The barrel with the ugly Söderei has more than overflowed.” (mg)
