With friends like that, who needs en­e­mies?

Sun­day 21 June 2009 20:07

I've said it and said it again. And now they have a new friend. This isn't about whether Jörg is in­no­cent or guilty, it's about whether this is the smartest way they could han­dle this sit­u­a­tion. Now they brag about how they have some­one im Bun­destag, but I fail to see the De­mo­c­ra­t­ic process be­hind it. Even if you're con­vinced he's in­no­cent, that doesn't mean you have to just hand over that much pow­er like that. Not only pow­er ac­cord­ing to some clever par­ty rules, but the sheer mar­ket­ing pow­er of the man. It looks like he's now the face of the Pi­rates, and - in­no­cent or not - it will be hard to get that ge­nie back into the bot­tle, and it seems they don't even re­al­ize it yet...
