spokesman: dispute over s-21 alternatives 'phantom debate

“There are no political majorities for another variant, no feasibility study, no financing – there is nothing,” dietrich told the dpa news agency in stuttgart. Neither the airport, which has contributed to the costs up to now, nor the city will continue to be available as financiers, because the link between the city and the airport will be eliminated, as will its connection to the high-speed rail line.

“The railroad itself would not want to build the project again from today”s point of view with the experiences made, but sees no alternative to continue building,” said dietrich. The black peter had the country, which so far does not want to pay more than 930 million euro, said dietrich. State premier winfried kretschmann (grune) wants to prevent an exit debate because he knows very well: “whoever demands an exit will pay for it.”

A lot of money is at stake if the project is cancelled. According to the railroad"s calculations, this would amount to at least two billion euros, which is mainly due to the reversal of the track area sold to the city of stuttgart, as well as possible claims for damages by the construction companies that had already been awarded contracts. "The exit is a one-hundred-percent loss, but if construction continues, there will be a new station with more capacity," dietrich emphasized.

Martin walser philosophizes about angela merkel's beauty

The writer martin walser (91) once again shows himself to be a fan of chancellor angela merkel: he describes himself in the new "spiegel" as "seduced" by her "and by the quiet force of her beauty". How he means this, he explains in an essay.

"Her face hardly ever shows what she thinks she has to say again now."Merkel’s image is her nature, says walser. "And this is what distinguishes her from all politicians of the epoch: when she speaks, let us experience how her phrases are created as she speaks. What makes her unique is that she lets us see how she comes up with the sentences she says."And also: "I am always curious to see what she will say at the next moment."

Walser himself refers in the "spiegel" to an older text of himself, which was written on the 22nd of friday. November 2015 in the "frankfurter allgemeine sonntagszeitung" and in which it said at the time: "when i said in berlin the other day in a hall full of people: "angela merkel is already", people laughed."
