The formerly grand coalition led in the long run to a deep mutual dislike of the long-term partners, red-green is not in sight, not even the red-green-pink, which is complicated for economic and political reasons, seems to be attainable at present. The prospect of red and blue in turn makes the left wing shudder, while Burgenland’s governor Hans Peter Doskozil (SPÖ) never tires of praising the good cooperation in the corresponding coalition in his home state. After all, this problem has recently moved into the background, as the SPÖ and FPÖ are far from having a majority, which means that red-blue only serves as a specter in the turquoise election campaign saga.

If there is currently any consolation for the Austrian Social Democrats, it is that top candidate Rendi-Wagner and her manager Christian Deutsch are doing better in the campaign than many internally feared. In addition, one has the justified hope that after the recent successes of the social democratic Chamber of Labor and Governor Peter Kaiser in Carinthia, Doskozil in Burgenland will also win an election in 2020. The Vienna election, once again hyped up as the mother of all battles, should also enable the city party consolidated under Michael Ludwig to continue writing the history of red Vienna.

In the

Ibiza affair

Now the investigators of the “Soko Ibiza” come into focus: Now-MP

Peter Pilz

called for an early special session in the National Council. He sees a bias on the part of the investigators. The FPÖ also advocates a new appointment due to the alleged political closeness of most Soko members to the ÖVP.

“It is no longer without it,” said Pilz on Thursday and asked the SPÖ and NEOS for support for his project. Pilz would like to deal in the National Council, among other things, the accusation that the investigators are biased in the Ibiza affair. “We cannot simply let the Ibiza politicians run around free of any responsibility in the election campaign,” said list founder Pilz on Thursday at a press conference in Vienna.paper help The investors named in the Ibiza video – and now some of them as generous ÖVP donors – are “not just any people who throw their money around and it just happens to end up with the ÖVP. People want something in return “, so Pilz. According to him, benefits would have been “land zoning, tax cuts and primarily redistribution of social security burdens from millionaires to employees”. He would like to investigate this in a special session.

SPÖ and NEOS are still hesitant

On Thursday, the SPÖ and Neos were rather reluctant to attend the special session on “Soko Ibiza” called for by Pilz. Pilz has “not yet spoken to anyone from the SPÖ,” said the Social Democratic Club. Discussions at parliamentary level always have to be held before a special session, this has not happened so far. The proposal for a special meeting did not meet with broad approval from the Neos either. “We are of course for full clarification and regularly provide numerous inquiries for it,” said Neos MP Stephanie Krisper. In principle, a special meeting could also make sense to ask department heads about the behavior of their ministry. “At the moment, this attempt at another Pilz show shortly before the election is dispensable,” said Krisper. But: If the Neos don’t get clear answers to open questions soon, there will be no way around a special meeting.

What happened to hidden million dollar donations?

Pilz also wants to discuss in the National Council how the Ibiza video came about and when ÖVP boss Sebastian Kurz found out about it. In addition, Pilz would like to know what “happened to the hidden million dollar donations” and what “exactly happened with the short shredder”. But what is even more important: Pilz locates party-political bias in “Soko Ibiza” and wants to clarify this matter as soon as possible. The problem is ÖVP officials who investigate the FPÖ and ÖVP as criminal police officers in “Soko Ibiza”. And “an ÖVP police officer is certainly biased when he is supposed to investigate his own people,” said Pilz.

Criticism of “ÖVP-friendly Ibiza directive”

The list founder criticized a “fatal and legally unjustifiable ÖVP-friendly Ibiza directive from the Minister of Justice”. Justice Minister Clemens Jabloner sent a “devastating signal” according to Pilz on the question of the bias of individual members of “Soko Ibiza”. Jabloner had recently spoken out in favor that party membership of investigators does not yet mean bias. According to the Ö1 “Morgenjournal”, the Minister of Justice announced: “The mere fact of membership in a party (…) does not justify any appearance of bias.” Jabloner refers to the federal constitution.

Pilz sees this as a “serious political failure”. The now MP does not believe that the minister “deliberately wants to cover up traces”. However, Pilz asked Jabloner to ask the Minister of the Interior to check every member of the “Soko Ibiza” for possible bias. There is “the suspicion that the” Soko Ibiza “does not see so well on the turquoise eye!”

FPÖ speaks of proximity to the ÖVP

Meanwhile, the FPÖ is also calling for Soko Ibiza to be replaced. The reason is the alleged political closeness of most members to the ÖVP, so the deputy club boss Herbert Kickl and the MP Hans-Jörg Jenewein on Thursday in a press conference. They fear that the cell phone data of the former FPÖ leader Heinz-Christian Strache could be transferred to the party headquarters.

Almost all investigating members of the Soko set up to clarify the Causa Ibiza were ÖVP partisans, was Jenewein’s accusation. He did not name sources, however. If Interior Minister Wolfgang Peschorn only carries a “spark of non-partisanship”, he would have to dissolve the currently existing commission and replace it with independent experts. “It cannot be here to give the ÖVP free access to information,” he said.

Data leak feared

Specifically, Jenewein fears that during the election campaign data on Strache’s confiscated phone could reach the public via the ÖVP headquarters. The device of a former Vice Chancellor should actually be treated as a state secret and sealed, he said. The FPÖ mandate was also convinced that there would be a parliamentary committee of inquiry into the Ibiza cause after the election. It doesn’t even need the freedom people for that.

Kickl also questioned Peschorn’s impartiality. The Minister of the Interior is a regular guest at the ÖVP federal party headquarters and will probably “get his instructions” in order to promote the party’s “left swing”. Kickl’s criticism of his successor was correspondingly harsh. Peschorn is a “lame duck”, ie a lame duck, and since he took office, security policy in Austria has suffered massively.

Peschorn is also called upon to put a stop to the ÖVP’s “insane request” to enable apprenticeship seekers to finish their training before they are possibly deported. Kickl listed the closure of police inspections, the termination of the recruitment offensive and the suspension of the procurement of new ammunition as further failures. Peschorn is therefore not a “patron saint” of the police.

ÖVP: allegations are “conspiracy theories”

For the ÖVP, the accusations of the FPÖ and Jetzt are “absurd”. General Secretary Karl Nehammer spoke on Thursday in a broadcast of “conspiracy theories” and criticized the freedomists in particular. Their managing club boss Herbert Kickl apparently wanted to overshadow the FPÖ-internal quarrels.

“Herbert Kickl should stop beating himself and return to a businesslike style,” says Nehammer. Otherwise, party chairman Norbert Hofer would have to speak a word of power. “The fact that Kickl, as the former chief and interior minister, messes with decent police officers who do their job properly and correctly, for party tactical reasons and does it badly shows once again Herbert Kickl’s lack of awareness and sensitivity in dealing with the FPÖ Ibiza scandal.”

Ministers see no cause for concern

Justice Minister Clemens Jabloner and Interior Minister Wolfgang Peschorn are not deterred by all the criticism of Soko Ibiza. The criminal investigations are being consistently pursued on the basis of the law by the judicial authorities appointed for this purpose with the participation of the criminal police, they said in a broadcast on Thursday. “There is no reason to be dissuaded from this rule of law procedure by shouts,” both declared. Although every allegation of bias is taken seriously, the allegations made anonymously in these sensitive investigations have turned out to be insubstantial after examination according to criminal procedure law and civil service law.

All his life incapable of doing something for the Austrian people and I’m already 70, but had to do something every day for 49 years! This is how cheap you can earn good money in Austria!

In the past, most supermarkets gave you a free plastic bag with every purchase. The times are (almost) over, keyword environmental protection. The free plastic bag has been on the decline in Europe for years. As the last part of Great Britain, England has now introduced a fee for the carrier bags. Since Monday, supermarket customers have had to bring their own bags or pay five pence – just under seven cents. But the implementation is not yet complete.

However, to the annoyance of environmentalists, this only applies to businesses that have at least 250 full-time employees. The government in London hopes that the consumption of bags in supermarkets will decrease by 80 percent. Until now, customers often had to defend themselves if they didn’t want one-way plastic bags. In England alone, 7.4 billion bags were sold in large supermarkets in 2013, an average of 133 per customer.

EU against plastic bags

In a directive from April 2015, the EU gave its member states the option of banning free plastic bags by the end of 2018 or reducing the number of bags used to 90 per inhabitant by the end of 2019. The EU Commission put the annual consumption of plastic carrier bags at 100 billion pieces in the entire Union. The vast majority, 89 percent, is used only once.

Austria is exemplary, but further improvement plans

According to the 2010 commission figures, per capita consumption in Austria was 51 – the third lowest value among all EU countries. However, 45 of these 51 bags were only used once. After the EU plans were announced, the Minister of the Environment, Andrä Rupprechter, announced the aim of an industry agreement to halve the number of bags consumed per capita to 25 by 2019.

Free plastic bags

Do you mourn the free tote bags?

  • Yes, that was good service. As if the EU had no other problems.
  • No, if it costs something, you think twice about whether you really need the bag.

A few years ago, as an exception, I bought some fabric shopping bags from a discounter that has since gone bankrupt. Of course without any advertising imprint, with neutral patterns. This supermarket once had a really good idea. I still use the bags today. I am amazed that no company has ever thought of making cloth bags for shopping. Must I, …

… Just like yesterday, buying plastic bags, they are used umpteen times and in the end they end up as rubbish bags in the trash. I cannot do more for the environment, others are responsible for that!
