Ryanair removes Düsseldorf airport from the flight plan

Düsseldorf Airport is the largest airport in North Rhine-Westphalia

Europe’s largest low-cost airline, Ryanair, is withdrawing from Düsseldorf Airport. The base at the largest NRW airport is to be closed, more than 200 employees are losing their jobs, as Ryanair announced on Thursday. The reason given by the Irish airline was what it saw as the excessively high fees at Düsseldorf Airport. According to the airport, Ryanair flies to around 20 destinations so far.

Affected passengers get their money back

After the end of the summer season on October 24th, all Ryanair flights to and from Düsseldorf are said to be canceled. The seven Airbus A320 aircraft stationed at the airport of the North Rhine-Westphalian state capital will be withdrawn. Passengers affected by the flight cancellations will receive a full refund in the coming days, the airline announced.

Ryanair has demanded drastic discounts in airport charges

Ryanair cited the airport’s refusal to lower its “very high fees” as the reason for the decision. In addition, the handler Acciona demanded an immediate price increase of 30 percent. The state subsidies from Lufthansa also made it impossible for Ryanair “to operate profitably in Düsseldorf this winter and at the same time to offer the low tariffs necessary to stimulate traffic again during the Covid crisis”.

An airport spokesman emphasized that Ryanair had demanded “drastic discounts” in airport charges. “We could not comply with this request, since the prices are not freely negotiable, but fees set by the authorities,” which all airlines apply. The approach to the fees is “transparent and fair”. In addition, the airport itself is struggling with the economic consequences of the corona pandemic. In order to cushion the acute financial effects of the crisis, the “possibilities of securing liquidity offered to us” would be exhausted.

The Ryanair flights to and from Düsseldorf are operated by the subsidiary Laudamotion. Laudamotion had previously closed its base in Stuttgart. This means that the subsidiary will finally cease operations in Germany from October 24th. Ryanair will try to find a new base for the Düsseldorf aircraft.


Ex-boss Markus Braun’s megalomania: Wirecard wanted to take over Deutsche Bank

Updated on August 26, 2020, 8:39 a.m.

The Morning Briefing by Gabor Steingart – controversial, critical and humorous. Know what is being discussed politically. Today: the megalomania of the ex-Wirecard boss Markus Braun, the joys of the Americans, which are the pain of the Europeans, and the schools in North Rhine-Westphalia, which are not allowed to exclude students without masks from lessons.

One column

from Gabor Steingart

In a precisely researched story, the “Financial Times” reported this morning about the megalomania of the ex-Wirecard boss and co-owner Markus Braun. Because he had hired McKinsey to prepare a plan to take over Deutsche Bank. The code name was “Project Panther” and could just as well have been called “Project megalomania”.

The new company should be named “Wirebank” and “think and act like a fintech bank on the scale of a global bank”. McKinsey estimated that it could generate six billion euros in additional profit by 2025. Furthermore, the McKinsey report promised a doubling of the joint stock exchange valuation at almost 50 billion euros.

In the opinion of the FT, however, another point might have been decisive for the “Project Panther”: a takeover of German bank offered the prospect of an exit from the fraud that Wirecard had operated. Round 1.9 billion euros in cash were missing from their accounts and much of their business in Asia was in reality an elaborate hoax. By embedding the Wirecard business in Deutsche Bank’s balance sheet, it was possible to conceal the missing cash and replace the swindle with real business with real customers.

However, the plan had a catch: In order to prepare such a deal seriously, needed Wirecard an opinion from KPMGthat gave him flawless running the company as well correct balance sheets confirmed. KPMG’s approval never came.

Shortly afterwards, Wirecard filed for bankruptcy and Braun was arrested. The FT balances:

“His dream of taking over Deutsche Bank had turned into a nightmare.”

Neither the Berlin supervisory bodies nor the managers in Bonn responsible for controlling Wirecard are being prosecuted. For this, however, one loses Most of the workforce of the financial service provider the workplace. Around 730 of 1,300 employees will be given notice, declared the insolvency administrator yesterday Michael Jaffé.

The joys of the Americans are the pains of the Europeans

Donald Trump doesn’t need a new trade war with Europe – he has the dollar. Its exchange rate against the euro is falling and falling, which makes it more than just easier for American exporters to export. Because: If the dollar falls and the euro rises, US goods become cheaper.

The joys of Americans are the pains of Europeans. European exporters – and that means German industry in particular – are troubled by the solid euro. Goods worth over 200 billion euros put only the German corporations, first and foremost the automotive, chemical and mechanical engineering industries USA from. A large part of the costs – wages and intermediate products – are incurred in the hard currency euro, while the proceeds are settled in the soft currency dollar.

There are essentially two reasons behind the tension in the transatlantic monetary system to lead:

First: The exchange relations of the currencies are always a mirror of the economic resilience. America is vulnerable in the midst of the pandemic. It is unclear whether the country will face lockdown after a Democratic takeover. Joe Biden presents himself to voters as the early Merkel.

Secondly: The dollar is losing its nimbus as an anchor currency. Meanwhile, in the past every shock in the world – oil price shocks, terrorist attacks, threat of war – animated investors to buy dollars, the “flight to safety”, this time the USA itself is the epicenter of political uncertainty. Trump is the Vesuvius of Washington. He can spit ash and lava at any time.

Conclusion: In view of this currency disparity, Germany has to secure the cost base of its domestic production, including on the wage side – no Corona helps. In other words: if the euro hits the gas, it should Wage policy slow down. This connection is socio-politically fatal, politically undesirable and nevertheless imperative for the overall economy.

Schools in NRW are not allowed to exclude students without masks

Crashing defeat for the Düsseldorf state government: Schools in North Rhine-Westphalia are not allowed to exclude students without a mask from lessons. The Düsseldorf administrative court pointed this out on Tuesday. After refusing to wear masks, two students at a grammar school in the Lower Rhine region defended themselves against the exclusion from classes in court – with success.

In North Rhine-Westphalia need students to secondary schools Wear a mask in class and during breaks. This causes frustration in the educational institutions. Laschet is coming under increasing pressure with his school policy:

The School Management Association of the country has criticized the responsible ministry in an open letter. Already in the second paragraph of the letter it says that school policy takes place in connection with the organization of school lessons under the conditions of Coronavirus-Pandemic “too little” the actual Framework the schools was.

“The requirements of the Ministry of Education can hardly be met due to the local conditions and the general school conditions!”

Almost 44,000 people have already signed an online petition against the mask requirement in schools. It was initiated by Miriam Schmitz, a woman who worked in the Morning Briefing Podcast says:

“I have a child in high school, fifth grade. My little one came to this school brand new and would have liked to get to know his classmates. But with the mask requirement, he has never seen half of his class.”

Louisa Dellert in the Moring Briefing Podcast

Louisa Dellert, better known as Lou, visited us at PioneerOne yesterday. The 31 year old is Entrepreneur, podcaster and influencer. She has around 400,000 followers on Instagram. With her I have for the Morning Briefing Podcast spoken – about the contradictions of Corona politics, the human longing for closeness and their idea of ​​eroticism in times of the pandemic.

Electoral reform in the coalition committee

The coalition committee met tonight under the leadership of the Chancellor. Two topics were in the foreground: On the one hand, there was electoral reform, which is intended to prevent the Bundestag from constantly growing and soon becoming larger than the People’s Congress in China.

The result:

  • Everything that helps not to make the corona consequences noticeable was decided. So an extension of the Short-time allowance and the enactment of Social contributions for companies in need.
  • The painful one for the MPs Reform des Bundestag – because a reduction in size means the elimination of mandates – was postponed to the next legislative period.

My colleagues from “Capital Newsletter” have more information about the negotiation marathon that has ended.

The dispute between Turkey and Greece over the Turkish Natural gas explorations off the Greek islands is coming to a head. Foreign Minister Heiko Maas has now called on both NATO partners for talks during a visit to Athens:

“What we urgently need now are signals of de-escalation and a willingness to engage in dialogue.”

The situation in the eastern Mediterranean has become one “Play with the fire” according to the SPD politician.

“Even the smallest spark can lead to a disaster.”

At the same time sharpened Maas the conflict continued, in which he stood behind Greece. He assured Athens the full support of the EU, which in Ankara would be considered impossible Willingness to dialogue can interpret. Conclusion: The honest man Maas made his appearance as an arsonist.

Michael Mronz is the great fearless man in the German economy. The organizer of Europe’s largest horse show, who cannot ride himself at all, is also the most committed operator of an Olympics in Germany in 2032. He wants to start the sports facilities Rhine and Ruhr connect to a large Olympic Park, which should not result in any building ruins and no ecological ancillary costs. “Rhein Ruhr City 2032” is what he calls his initiative, which the NRW state government and meanwhile the Olympic Committee support.

But what do they think Citizen? At least in Munichwhen it came to the 2018 Winter Olympics, they thwarted the Olympic planners democratically. But Mronz, the indestructible, believes not only in the radiance of the Olympics, but also in the beauty of democracy. In the Morning Briefing Podcast, he says:

“I am convinced that people would like and enjoy saying yes to this idea of ​​the Olympics.”

Indeed, the new thing about the Mronz Plan is that the region should not suffer for the Olympics, but rather benefit from the Olympics. The cultural “We in NRW” would be achieved through investments in Mobility and digitality economically primed: gold for North Rhine-Westphalia.

I wish you an optimistic start to the new day. Sincerely yours

Corona: Anders Tegnell – “To believe that masks can solve our problem is very dangerous”

Summer vacation in Germany is booming – but major losses due to Corona

Full beaches on the North and Baltic Seas, peak activity in the foothills of the Alps: despite the summer travel boom in many holiday regions, tourism in Germany cannot catch up with the slumps caused by the corona crisis, according to the industry. “The bottom line is that one can hardly speak of a boom in tourism in Germany this year. The losses during the lockdown were too great for that, ”said Norbert Kunz, managing director of the German Tourism Association (DTV). At the moment, vacationers in particularly popular regions have to dig deeper into their pockets for overnight stays. Kunz speaks of price increases of up to a maximum of 10 percent.

According to his information, the North and Baltic Seas and the Prealps are particularly in demand. On the coast in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, around 80 percent of the accommodations are fully booked in July and August. “But even boom regions will not be able to match the results of 2019 this year,” said Kunz of the German press agency. This is also due to the fact that hotels, guesthouses or campsites, but especially the catering trade, cannot fully utilize their capacities due to the corona-related distance rules.

In addition, in many regions there are almost no foreign guests. This will not be compensated by holidaymakers from within Germany, said Kunz. According to a survey by the Society for Consumer Research (GfK), 29 percent of people in Germany are no longer planning a vacation this year. The majority of those willing to vacation are drawn to German destinations with Bavaria and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania at the top. 17 percent of all respondents wanted to set off for other European countries.

According to Kunz, regions such as the Thuringian Forest, the Sauerland, the Eifel, the Taunus, the Brandenburg Lake District and the Harz also benefit from the holiday trend in Germany. For example, accommodations in the Harz region report a sharp increase in booking numbers in June and July. “There is a strong trend towards nature,” said Kunz, describing the development.

From the point of view of the association, there can be no talk of relaxation for the industry, which has been hard hit by the Corona crisis. “A fifth of all tourism businesses are fighting for survival, they are still dependent on government aid,” reported the managing director of the tourism association. The short-time work allowance must be extended. It is currently available for up to 12 months. In addition, the obligation to file for insolvency should remain suspended beyond the end of September.


We are not all the same “

Munich Stephan Grünewald, member of the “Corona Expert Council” of the North Rhine-Westphalian state government, sees signs that social cohesion is disappearing in the virus crisis. “In the first few weeks there was an unparalleled collaboration between politics, experts, the media and the population,” said the psychologist and co-founder of the Rheingold Institute to the Handelsblatt. After a “tolerance to toleration”, the debate polarized again. “More and more doubters are reporting whether all of this is really appropriate.”

Corona is still experienced as an equalizer. “Everyone is affected. And all of a sudden, nurses, nurses, supermarket cashiers and garbage collectors are valued socially, ”Grünewald explains. As soon as the measures were relaxed, the “collective fate” ended and, for example, different grants or exit regulations created increasing rivalries. It will soon become clear: “We are not all the same.”

According to Grünewald, the polarizing positions of people can be determined by the agreement with the attitude of various politicians. He mentions the prime ministers Armin Laschet (CDU, North Rhine-Westphalia) and Markus Söder (CSU, Bavaria). “Some want a variant” Söder plus “, a leader – someone who is even more assertive and who rules even more clearly,” explains Grünewald, “Laschet is the type of moderating, weighing politician who takes citizens with him and takes all risks into account.”

Read the full interview here

Mr. Grünewald, you have been researching the state of the soul in the country for years. Did the behavior of the Germans in the corona crisis surprise you?
Nobody had anything like that on the screen. This is the deepest cut since World War II. As a person I am horrified, as a psychologist it is exciting to watch what happens there mentally.

What did you notice?
How we deal with a threat that we do not perceive sensually. In phase one, people tried to address the feeling of helplessness. The spring cleaning was even more martial than usual, you secured supplies in hamster purchases. In the first few weeks there was an unprecedented collaboration between politics, experts, the media and the population. All restrictions were carried.

And phase two?
The turning point came at the end of March. When the last bans were pronounced, we fainted. It was clear to everyone that the crisis could only be sat out. Most people succumbed to a tolerance of tolerance, a social fast. On the other hand, the debate is polarizing again. More and more doubters are reporting whether all of this is really appropriate.

In your last book, published in 2019, it says that there is no common spirit of departure in the troubled society: “With fearful anticipation, you look forward to the collapse.”
And the pandemic is this disturbing event. Everything breaks down that has given our life stability and security. Germany was one of the last paradises. Now you are afraid of infection, personal bankruptcy, bankruptcy and the loss of social cohesion.

And in response, are we chasing from one web conference to the next?
Working through is a counter strategy. We are experiencing a consolidation of work through digitization. Expansion joints are eliminated, you no longer have to sit in the train for two hours to get to the customer. Others, in turn, allow themselves to slow down and the richness of everyday analogue: they play, do handicrafts, talk. Then reality splits.

Escapism would be normal in such a situation.
Some actually flee into the daydream world of the Internet and from Netflix. However, this leads to unrest in the long term, and the anger potential increases. If, on the other hand, decommissioning is used as a pause for reflection, such purpose-free spaces can be the breeding ground for great ideas. It’s up to the Germans. We become inventive in the crisis.

You have criticized in the past that Germany has no master plan and no visions. Now we have to develop a plan against Corona and for a new economic miracle.

It is a negative vision. We want to ward off a great danger together. But this attitude will crumble.

In politics there are currently two politicians with different plans: Armin Laschet, whose expert council you are sitting on, and Markus Söder from Bavaria.
In our studies on Corona, we actually experience a split. Some want a variant “Söder plus”, a leader – someone who is even more assertive and rules out more clearly. The one who offers recipes. The others say the lockdown is deprived of liberty. You would need a more open, lax approach. Everyone has to be responsible for that – as in Sweden. Laschet is the type of moderating, weighing politician who takes citizens along and takes all risks into account.

And what about Angela Merkel? In your surveys, she was previously considered “caring” and “comforting”.
She has this trust bonus and again acts as a national guardian angel, just like before the refugee crisis. Oppositions will soon emerge again. The AfD will most likely occupy the “Söder plus” position, with the virus as a new enemy. The FDP will advocate more personal responsibility and relaxation. Both will get people behind.

Is there a new social gap here like 2015 in the refugee question?
I see parallels. We notice that there are cracks in the families. You no longer talk to each other – either because you consider the other person to be negligent in dealing with the virus, or because you believe in authority.

How long is a person able to do without in a lockdown?
The maximum is 40 days. The word quarantine comes from the Italian “quaranta”, forty – at the time of the plague danger in the 17th century, people were locked away in Venice during this period. That’s why our summer holidays are so long, by the way. At the beginning of May we have to give people a new perspective – and from then on it is best to do it every three weeks.

As a psychologist, what have you actually achieved in the expert council of the NRW state government?
I have pointed out the growing danger of an everyday mental collapse and renewed social polarization. The latter can now increase because there are no longer any collective measures, but differentiated ones. This has to be argued wisely, but threatens jealousy and lack of understanding.

How do you assess the easing measures that the federal and state governments decided last Wednesday?
This opening must not lead people to believe that they are back to normal. From a psychological point of view, the relief must therefore be combined with new precautionary measures so that the citizens feel that they are still vigilant and active. This includes the obligation to wear a mask and an app that shows infected people.

The population accepts that without grumbling?
Politicians should know the well-being of the population beforehand. For example, many are eager to go to the hairdresser again, they are afraid to go wild in social isolation. The well-groomed hairstyle distinguishes people from barbarians. And hairdressers are important conversation therapists who wash our heads in two ways.

How important is it to continue playing the Bundesliga in May?
People have endured social fasting only through small escapes. The good weather for weeks was something of a heavenly consolation. You went for a walk or jog. Football is often the dramatic climax of the week, so it’s a great escape.

Show professional games to fulfill TV contracts – doesn’t that seem like an arbitrary privilege for a certain industry?
Without a spectator, the Bundesliga is surely an imposition. But it is so: we have bread, games are missing. Activities in opera and theater – all without an audience – would have to be expanded for streaming. The protagonists keep more distance on stage than the footballers in duels.

The debate about the Bundesliga and exemptions gives a foretaste of the social question of who will win the crisis and who will lose.
That will be one of the major disappointments and dangers in the future. Corona is still experienced as an equalizer. Everyone is affected. And nurses, nurses, supermarket cashiers and garbage collectors are suddenly valued socially. But it will soon become clear that we are not all the same. If we relax the measures, the collective fate ends. If one branch is allowed to do more than another or one federal state more than another, this creates “sibling rivalries”.

And the role of politics in this?
It will be harder for politicians to moderate these conflicts. Your current high approval ratings are just a snapshot.

What will media consumption look like? The arousal over Corona spread faster than the pathogen, you noted.
For three or four weeks, people have absorbed everything on the subject. Our interviews show that this has now been exhausted. You really heard everything and you know how to behave. Now you watch less news again. It would be dangerous if the media wanted to counteract this through greater dramatization. They have to further educate, classify and create context, for example through country comparisons.

The phenomenon of “fake news” seemed to be a thing of the past. Everyone was interested in science and its facts. Will it stay that way?
There is still a basic interest in the factual. But conspiracy theories also fatally promise easy orientation. But here there is a guilty person, a scapegoat and with it the hope that one can turn fate if one punishes the supposed originators.

Germany has struggled with digitization for years. Now it is developing almost on its own – a gain in the market situation?
Necessity means that maneuverability arises from need. We are experiencing an unprecedented surge in digitization. However, this can lead to collateral damage if, for example, there is more digital control and control anger and the analog expansion joints break away in everyday life.

How will the country as a whole develop from the corona crisis? More foreclosure? Or more courage to find your own answers in and with globalization?
We are increasingly withdrawing from ourselves during the crisis and narrowing our horizons. It is human, but it is important to expand the radius again soon. For example, I appeal to Germans to show solidarity again in Europe.

After 1945 the Germans had the dream of rebuilding the destroyed country. Does this mechanism work now?
It is certainly a different reconstruction. The Germans have made great sacrifices recently – it would therefore not be enough to simply bring everything back to the old state. There is a longing for a new picture. It starts with the question of how fast you want to live your life. We never had the experience of extreme deceleration before. That comes into play.

What new values ​​are important when restarting?
Empathy and a new sensibility for solidarity. Who can I rely on in an emergency? Which politicians, friends and brands? That has the fiasco of Adidas shown that the rents simply did not want to pay. And leisure becomes important. In a recent study, we found that many Germans rediscovered the puzzle. You have to go step by step here, you need milestones and a framework. And all parts are equally important. It is like restarting society.

Mr. Grünewald, thank you for the interview.

6.15 a.m .: NRW MPs want to forego an increase in diet

The large parliamentary groups in the NRW state parliament want to set an example in the corona crisis and will forego their regular increase in diet this year. One wants to show solidarity with the people in the country who fear for their livelihoods, according to DPA information in a joint bill of the CDU, SPD, FDP and Greens. According to reports, the country would save around 500,000 euros.

The salaries would actually be “adjusted” as of July 1, as stated in the Members’ Act. The basis is, among other things, the general wage development and the consumer price index of the previous year. This is to ensure that MEPs are not better or worse off than other citizens. However, the current crisis would not be covered by this system – the diets would increase. The amount is still unclear, since it can only be calculated each year from May.

4.35 p.m .: Warning of bankruptcy! IHK NRW sounds the alarm

The IHK NRW, the union of all 16 chambers of industry and commerce in NRW, warns of an unprecedented wave of bankruptcies. The travel and catering trade and the retail trade in particular are in a situation threatening their very existence. Ralf Mittelstädt, Managing Director of IHK NRW: “The feedback from the travel and hospitality industry as well as the retail trade is more than alarming. Because despite the lack of sales, fixed costs such as rents and salaries still have to be paid. ”

The drop in sales will not be caught up in the short term. The partial openings would not change that much either. Mittelstädt continues: “A short-term reopening is not so easy for every company. For example, new goods first have to be purchased and personnel requirements planned. Added to this are the necessary protective and hygienic measures. “

In view of the fact that sales are still missing for many companies, they are once again dependent on direct support. Because without a prospect of restarting, loans and guarantees only increase debts. Mittelstädt: “We are very concerned about the companies. These companies, as well as the dealers, who are still not allowed to open today, now need a uniform, fair and implementable exit plan while complying with the necessary protection and hygiene measures. “

Anyone who violates the obligation to wear a mask may be expelled from shops or buses. Fines were initially not planned. So far, the citizens have complied with the applicable distance rules. It is assumed that they are now also fulfilling the obligation to cover their mouths and noses when shopping or driving a bus.

12.45 p.m .: New pandemic law invalid?

The SPD believes that the pandemic law for NRW passed a few days ago is invalid. In the promulgated legal text, a passage that the CDU, FDP, SPD and Greens had decided in the state parliament had been dropped. “As a result, all official orders and measures that were instigated in the past week in trust in this law have been carried out without a legal reason,” said a letter from SPD parliamentary group leader Thomas Kutschaty to the state parliament president.

“I can’t predict the consequences. However, they can be serious, ”according to information from the German Press Agency in Kutschaty’s letter of Monday. On Sunday, he urged Prime Minister Armin Laschet (CDU) “to completely redraft and announce the law as soon as possible”.

Dorsten is the first NRW city to introduce a mask requirement! This initially applies in municipal administration buildings and at the recycling center, from Thursday then also in all day care centers in the city, but only for adults. From Tuesday, the approximately 1200 employees of the city administration would basically only enter the buildings with a mouth-and-nose protection (MNS) until further notice, the city said. The regulation also applies to citizens. Citizens without their own mouth and nose protection can buy a disposable MNS for the price of one euro at the entrance to the respective administration building.

“We have to realize that the corona crisis is not over yet. Therefore, it is still important to do everything possible to break possible chains of infection. And mouth-nose protection is a suitable means of doing this, ”the mayor explained.

10 a.m .: Laschet defends easing after criticism of Merkel

NRW Prime Minister Armin Laschet has defended the further easing in his state after the sharp criticism from Chancellor Angela Merkel. North Rhine-Westphalia is the country of kitchen builders, Laschet said on Monday, according to participants in a switching conference of the CDU Presidium on Monday. Other participants also said that Laschet fundamentally supported Merkel.

The state government of North Rhine-Westphalia had announced, among other things, that furniture stores and baby specialty stores were to be opened in the first step. Merkel had previously criticized the discussions on further easing of restrictions in the fight against the coronavirus exceptionally sharply in the CDU Presidium. According to DPA information from participants, Merkel made it clear how dissatisfied she was that the message of cautious easing in some countries had led to “opening discussions”.

It was necessary to use an additional day to sell the goods “so that the retail sector can absorb some of the losses,” said the head of the SME and Economic Union. He also advocated further open debates on how the state should reduce personal and economic constraints in the Corona crisis. “We have to discuss exit scenarios,” said the CDU politician.

6.45 a.m .: Because of Corona? Public order cars lit.

Three vehicles from the Ordnungsamt in Bielefeld burned on Friday night. It was apparently arson, as a police spokesman said in the morning.

Prime Minister of North Rhine-Westphalia Armin Laschet has commented on the future of high school graduates and graduates in times of the coronavirus. For example, the Abitur exams are to take place in NRW, and exam preparation and lessons should start again next week.

Criticize the students in NRW Armin Laschet for these decisions, let your anger run free on the Internet.

Armin Laschet: Shitstorm on social media

CDU politicians Armin Laschet After the federal conference of country heads on Wednesday expressed satisfaction with the results.

“It was a good conversation today,” the 59-year-old begins a video message on Instagram.

It was important to him that there was a nationwide consensus regarding the loosening of the corona. “After intensive deliberations on a common road map, the federal states and the federal government have today become suitable for further action in the corona pandemic, towards a responsible normality,” concluded the Prime Minister.

+++ Coronavirus in NRW: This major event takes place ++ This changes for train drivers ++ First amusement park open again +++

But one group of people was less satisfied – and expressed their displeasure on Instagram.

High school graduates pissed off

Because after the schools have been closed in the last three weeks, lessons are to take place again next week. Classes aimed at students who are about to take final exams should start on April 23 – and be voluntary.

In addition, the planned final examinations are to take place at the current status.

The regulations cause criticism among the pupils concerned – which they express in vigorous words under the contribution of Armin Laschet:

  • “What does a degree bring me when I’m dead?”
  • “We are not your guinea pigs!”
  • “They won’t get my voice in my lifetime. And I think that over 300,000 other high school graduates see it similarly ”
  • “No one is currently mentally able to graduate, the decision is just ridiculous”
  • “Dear Mr. Laschet, take the bus with me next week and accompany me to school. There is no danger for all of us. “

Around 23,000 comments can be found under the post, almost entirely negative – including ironic basics like “I hope your cell phone falls into the toilet” or “I hope your pants will tear at your next speech”.

The minister is making the students angrier

But as if that weren’t enough, Armin Laschet continues to upset the commentators with an action: The negative comments will be deleted!

But obviously the minister, or the manager of his Instagram channel, cannot keep up with the flood of comments. “Mr. Laschet, it makes it much worse if you delete comments like a small child,” writes one person.


Corona virus schools: when does the opening come? Söder distances himself from experts

Ab 2 p.m., a video conference decides how and whether the strict corona measures of the federal and state governments will continue. Before the discussions with Chancellor Angela Merkel on easing restrictions, NRW Prime Minister Armin Laschet (both CDU) called for a common road map for the federal states.

“We need a consensus among the 16 countries. School politics, in particular, must not go it alone, ”said Laschet of the German Press Agency in Berlin.

In North Rhine-Westphalia Minister of Education Yvonne Gebauer (FDP) has announced that it will gradually open the schools again after the Easter holidays. That is their “fixed goal”, above all to enable exams. A week later, the first daycare children in NRW are expected to be allowed to return to the daycare centers, as state family minister Joachim Stamp (FDP) suggested.

Bavaria rejects timely school opening

Bavarias Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) subsequently rejected a prompt opening of the schools after the Easter holidays in the ZDF “Today Journal”.

Already in the morning, Merkel wants to prepare the federal-state counter with the members of the Corona cabinet. Following the discussions with the Prime Ministers, it is planned that the Chancellor will inform the public of the results – presumably together with Söder as Chairman of the Conference of Prime Ministers and with his deputy, Hamburg Mayor Peter Tschentscher (SPD).

Suggestions from the Leopoldina

Most of the restrictions have been in effect for four weeks. The focus should now also be on the question of when children and adolescents can return to the daycare centers and schools that have been closed for weeks.

NRW: High school graduates should go back to school

Laschet said, “The proposal of various scientists to immediately teach all classes one to ten in schools again is not responsible from the perspective of the state government of North Rhine-Westphalia”. Priority would be given to those students who would prepare for degrees such as high school. The next steps would then have to be jointly decided in the light of the experience gained. It was important to have a “clear common road map on the way to responsible normality”.

The Prime Minister emphasized: “North Rhine-Westphalia has provided ideas and concepts for the federal-state consultations and will now implement what the states decide together with the Federal Chancellor.” In retail, distance regulations and protective measures are particularly important. “We need to further contain the virus, more specifically than before,” he said.

Söder said on Tuesday evening on ZDF that he was “very reluctant to go to schools”. He is also skeptical that primary schools should be opened first. “I have a fundamentally different view.” Söder also distanced himself from a recommendation by the National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina.

“In the final exams, I think you can be generous, because the students need a degree for their future career,” said Söder in the ARD “Daily Topics”. Protective measures could also be organized much better here. In general, politics is well advised to listen to the warnings of the educators about early school openings. “Less hectic pace, a little more patience and prudence could help everyone.”

In Thuringia Prime Minister Bodo Ramelow (left) has spoken out when considering the reopening of schools first of all taking into account the age groups that are about to graduate from high school or graduate this year. He had also expressed the expectation that retailers could gradually reopen under certain guidelines.

Söder said that there could be some relief in the next two or three weeks, for example in the trade, but always connected with clear requirements such as hygiene concepts, distance requirements, upper limits for the number of people per square meter and protective masks.

With regard to retail, he called for “at least one mask requirement, one mouth protection requirement”. The same applies to local public transport. When asked about the “daily issues”, whether he was in favor of a bid or an obligation to wear masks, the CSU chief said: “We will discuss this. I am very much in favor of the fact that we should handle this more strictly. ”One thing is clear:“ If we make it easier, there must be more protection at the same time. ”

Leopoldina and RKI contradict each other

The Leopoldina had advocated a “realistic” schedule back to normal. The scientists recommended opening schools “as soon as possible” – starting with primary schools as well as lower and intermediate levels. The Leopoldina also mentioned many conditions for a return to more normalcy. There is also a drafting of an expert council appointed by Laschet.

The Robert Koch Institute, on the other hand, suggested that schools be reopened for the higher years. It is about the assumption that young people could better comply with distance rules, said RKI President Lothar Wieler.

Bundesliga: Spahn for ghost games

In the discussion about a resumption of play in the Bundesliga soon, the DFL has apparently found an ally in Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn (CDU).

Spahn is said to have spoken internally for ghost games – but only under very strict hygiene requirements, reports the Düsseldorf “Rheinische Post” (Wednesday), citing government circles. Spahn therefore considers this to be “possible and also important for the millions of football fans in view of the other hardships”.
