10:05 pm
infamous quotes like we will make it but also i wouldn't have done anything different that's what she said after her conservative c.d.u. party lost almost nine percent in those last elections that was basically thrown at her and she was really struggling to explain it because she was clearly a bit surprised that she was so misunderstood when she was asked about this from this we can make as she started explaining her very broad strategy on how to avoid the causes of migration reaching into her african strategy as well so she was very academic in answering slightly above the head actually of many people who really wanted an answer of how can you promise something that we have to fulfill in the end so she was talking about pasties audience there as well but clearly she also herself came to the conclusion that maybe she should have listened more before that there should have been more such dialogues before meaning of course just after
