you don’t want to simply set a Position: After a television interview at the speed limit, environment Minister Svenja Schulze (SPD) in the criticism. The presenter, Thomas Walde had demanded in the five – minute conversation multiple times, if Schulze is the requirement of your party for a speed limit support-but the Minister, the question is answered. For Schulze is now reaping especially on Twitter ridicule.

A user wrote: “a lot of talk and nothing said.” Other users described the Interview as “the attempt to nail a Pudding to the wall”.

demand for forest Schulze said in the Interview: “I can understand that you want to have me a position.” But she could not define, a clear concept should be developed. As the forest inquired again, was: “I don’t want to discuss individual proposals.”

Also from within its own ranks Schulze get well to criticism. “What’s bugging me at my party: rum eggs, without saying anything,” wrote about Christian Müller, Deputy SPD group Chairman of Munich.

the environment Secretary of state Jochen Flasbarth defended the Minister: “It was absolutely right that Svenja Schulze has left the question of the speed limit in open. Climate protection in the transport is much more complex,” he wrote. A rejection of a speed limit is “as wrong as consent”.
