Yeah, these are the same politicians who force their constituency to live with the problems that they create, while they shield themselves in their gated communities.

The busload of migrants sent on a seven-hour journey to Angela Merkel’s office by a Bavarian governor in protest over the influx of refugees have been sent straight back.
The Syrian refugees were put on a coach yesterday in the southeastern town of Landshut and transported 340 miles to the German capital in an ‘act of desperation’ by Peter Dreier who warned the Chancellor: ‘We can’t manage’.
The bus, carrying 31 migrants, arrived shortly after 6pm (5pm GMT) in front of Merkel’s chancellery in the centre of Berlin.
Several police officers shielded the refugees from reporters as officials asked them to board another bus waiting nearby that was to take them to local shelters.
However, the refugees refused to leave the bus and after a two-hour wait in front of the chancellery, the coach left for an overnight accommodation.

This morning, they made their way back to Bavaria from a hotel in Hohen Neuendorf on the northern outskirts of Berlin, it was reported by Die Welt.
It came as Merkel’s predecessor also criticised her handling of the migrant crisis, but backed her stance that Germany can’t set a cap on the number of asylum-seekers it takes.
Ex-Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, who led Germany from 1998 to 2005, told Friday’s edition of the Handelsblatt daily that Merkel had ‘a lot of heart but no plan’ when she opened the borders to migrants last fall.
