Nudist beaches with Arabic signs. The vandalising of a mosque. And why ever more Germans envy Brexit: ROBERT HARDMAN on the substantial shift taking place in Angela Merkel’s backyard
Has sunbathing ever been quite such a hot political issue? French politicians – and British ones, too – have spent all summer arguing over a woman’s right to wear a ‘burkini’ on the beach, writes ROBERT HARDMAN
Here in Germany, in Chancellor Angela Merkel’s own backyard, there has been a pretty toxic debate over a woman’s right to wear nothing at all. ‘People are angry. It’s always been in our culture to sunbathe naked. Now our naturist beaches have to have signs which say “No Photography” in Arabic because these so-called refugees are filming them,’ says Jens Schneider, a local candidate and activist for Alternative Fur Deutschland – Alternative For Germany – in Mrs Merkel’s home state.
