Whoever claims the crown will drag Germany further into a giant EU blob, writes Bild's editor-at-large ALEXANDER VON SCHOENBURG

Now begins the wrangling. The imminent departure of Angela Merkel as Germany’s chancellor, amid the country’s closest election results in decades, leaves Europe’s powerhouse facing an uncertain future.

In a nation where coalitions are the norm, all politics is done by debate and negotiation rather than ballot-box victories.

But this time the power-sharing is more complex than ever. The most likely outcome might be a union of three Left-of-centre parties, in a wobbly triple combination. That’s something Germany hasn’t experienced since the early 1950s.

Only one thing is sure. Frau Merkel has embedded Germany so deeply in the European Union superstate that there can be no reversal of our headlong pro-Euro direction.

Germany is emasculated.
