How to create a law that no one wants

February 25th, 2010 769 comments

A prime example on how much many of our politicians and parties suck, has just come into effect; not only does it show that in times of election laws are constructed just for the cause of doing something (which in the best cases is harmless and plain nonsense), but also demonstrates the utter incompetence of politicians:
The Zugangserschwerungsgesetz (“Bill on making access more difficult”, rough translation, isn’t the German language just great?) has passed, although pretty much everyone else was against it.

Well, now elections are over and suddenly even the Verräterpartei (traitor’s party) and the Schwarze Pest (black plaque) are against their own law! To top it all, they are now advising the police not to apply the new law, which again is unconstitutional.

And those two form our biggest parties! German major parties – where incompetency and symbol politics meet in perfect harmony.
(not that this does not apply to other parties, too)
