Merkel sent to back benches by parliament’s president as her cred rating plunges

In a humiliating episode, Chancellor Angela Merkel was reprimanded in the German parliament for talking during a debate.

Parliament President Norbert Lammert told the dejected Merkel who had approached her side kick Volker Kauder to calculate, estimate and plan her next move, “that does not have to be, at least not at the front of the parliament.”

Thereupon, the defeated Mekel, her shoulders hanging down, walked to the back benches to continue her conspiratorial discussion with a deeply worried expression.
