ANGELA Merkel has admitted her hated “open door” policy on migrants led to her party’s crushing defeat in this weekend’s elections.
“But she basically went on to insist the German people did not know what was good for them and she just had to be more persuasive.

CDU could muster only a pitiful 19.2 per cent of the vote compared to the victorious AfD’s 21 per cent, leading to growing scepticism about Merkel’s ability to cling onto power in Germany after her party also lost three elections to the AfD in March.

Crimes should have been stopped and those criminals committing the crimes should have been put in prison immediately.
