    More Than Half Of Germans Want To Emigrate As People Have Lost Confidence In Merkel’s ‘Chaotic Government’

    Never before in recent history have so many Germans wanted to leave their homeland. 55 per cent said in a survey that they would like to try their luck in another country – many saying forever.

    The desire: In addition to better weather, the would-be emigrants hope for a new home, a stable political situation and a better income.

    In a survey conducted by YouGov on behalf of the financial services TransferWise more than half of respondents said that they would like to turn their back on Germany. If not forever, then you can imagine 13 per cent, at least for several years away from Germany to live.

    The reasons given for this were a “two-handed slap to Merkel and her companions,” as the magazine Free World stated:

    An important reason is the desire for a more stable political situation. People want to leave Germany because the political situation is too unstable.

    Such a statement did not even exist in times of terror of the Red Army faction, when the state had to deal with the left-wing terrorists supported by the SED state and other communist countries and existed an existential threat to democracy. But the government at that time gave the people the feeling that they would master the challenge.

    Merkel and others can not communicate this feeling to concerned citizens. All over the country, people have lost confidence in this chaotic government force, that this colourful bunch could get anything under control.

    This is also supported by the development of respondents’ desire to leave: 29 per cent of the people who are now emigrating have said that emigration two years ago was not an option for them, but has now become a real alternative.

    The reason why only a small portion of the Germans ready to emigrate can also make the dream work, is likely to be that many of the potential target countries are setting high barriers for immigration.

    Unlike Germany, they do not let anyone march into the country who wants to. Canada, Australia or New Zealand limit their receptivity mainly to young, healthy and well-trained craftsmen and professionals.

    Those who are older, will need a six-digit amount of money in the national currency to prove that they are not at some point going to be a burden on the local taxpayers.
