Christian ude at the spd in bad kissingen

"I expect good issues from him for 2013, also for the election in september, a good speech and a good presentation. I came because I find christian ude likeable", said josef plener (kleinbrach), an SPD member for many years, who had come to the new year's reception of the bad kissingen social democrats in the tattersall. "I expect christian ude to give an entertaining speech with pointed formulations. But it will certainly not be decisive for the election", said simone bastian (ebern), who does not belong to any party. And armin fischer, the local chairman of the kissingen SPD, was curious to see whether and how christian ude would come across as a sympathizer: "i don't expect him to say that the others are bad and we are better. I wish from him to show that we are good."

Some expectations of the SPD's top candidate for the bavarian state elections in september. And the mood was also expectant when the red cross orchestra played the hopeful song of the bavarian social democracy into the hall at 11 o'clock on the dot. There was still a little time left for the applause, when sabine dittmar, member of the mdl ("no one else can tap as well as he can") and mayor kay blankenburg buried the guest in a manner befitting the occasion, but also made a number of political demands, particularly in the area of healthcare.

The applause was strong when christian ude finally stepped up to the lectern. "What do we social democrats have to offer?" he asked without any preplanning. And he mentioned two important issues that are in the foreground for him, first of all the international financial crisis. The last 20 years, he said, had been a neoliberal period of economic radicalism and had ended with the collapse of leman bros. We have not experienced a crisis like this for 80 years." attempts by the states to prevent a spillover into the real economy had so far cost taxpayers 1600 billion euros for rescue packages and 2000 billion euros for keeping the economy going. Democratic societies could not continue to be the plaything of financial jugglers. "It was probably right to pull out all the stops to protect the economy, but we have to stop this aberration and get it under control.

Asking polluters to pay
Ude called for the introduction of a financial transaction tax to make the polluters share the costs. And he drew the conclusion from the observation that the american rating agencies lower their thumbs over europe, but ignore the insanely high indebtedness of the united states, that a european agency should be created.
But he does not want to adorn himself with other people's feathers, ude explained: "all these ideas are not mine, but peer steinbruck's. He has the right answers." but he couldn't help himself: "he should concentrate on that and leave salary issues to the unions again."

The other key point for the mayor of munich, who has been in office for 20 years, is the social gap, which is also widening in germany: "I don't see this as lobbying for hartz IV recipients, but for society as a whole." because they have to pay for the consequential costs of this social division. Ude called for the introduction of flat-rate minimum wages and employment contracts that would give young people planning security for their future.

With regard to state politics, ude called for a better balance in the development of bavaria's regions: "it can't be that a few growth cores are bursting at the seams while other areas are depopulating: "there are no patent solutions, but the CSU should stop denying that there are regions with worries about the future." it is also high time for a prevention law, rehabilitation and prevention cost money, but less than the elimination of consequences, if they are not pursued.

Publicity for the referendum
In the area of culture and education, ude called for the withdrawal of the childcare allowance in favor of the expansion of daycare facilities, the establishment of more all-day schools, so that children from educationally disadvantaged backgrounds could also be challenged, the preservation of schools close to home, and the abolition of tuition and master's examination fees. The 180 million euros must be financed through the sovereign budget."

And then christian ude delivered what most people had been waiting for: a few almost cabaret-style jabs at his opponent horst seehofer and his tendency to change his unquestionable opinions depending on the political weather: "there are hardly any questions left on which seehofer says today what he said yesterday. The expiration date of his opinions is in the near future." ude did not make any direct election campaign. But: "it's all about your own interests in september. And if they think that some things can still be improved, then they get involved."
