within the european union. some of the states were reluctant with france and others . that is gone now. with mainlya chance struggling internally in their own country, it makes it hard to push the european question further. that means we will not see the necessary reforms and the european union, and might make it easier for the u.k. to put pressure on europe if the chancellor is somehow weaker right now. we will see another your pass by . >> how do you see the alliance ?etween germany and france? does it seem strange? >> i am very hesitant to talk about an alliance. we have elections coming up.
