The 70s revival - German branch

Nationalisation, or rather strategic stakes, are all the rage on the other side of the Rhine, judging by a poll for Stern, summarised in English here. These are popular to stop Arabs sovereign wealth funds buying into e.on, Deutsche Bank etc. Anyway, 77% of Germans are fearfully protective of their energy companies, 64% of banks, insurers, 60% of airlines, transport firms, the post office etc.

As one might expect, the left parties - Die Linken (dark red), the Socialists (red) and the Greens (guess...) - are keenest on 'strategic stakes' overall, but the Christian Democrats (black) are the most enthusiastic about putting an arm around Siemens and the rest of the electrical / electronic industry, and the Free Democrats (yellow) are keener on wading into Commercial Property than the far left. The Greens fancy buying into the car industry, presumably to close it down.
