Weidel: The bankruptcy wave is just a foretaste of the consequences of the catastrophic lockdown policy
The number of personal bankruptcies in Germany was 31,821 in the first quarter of the current year. That is an increase of 56.5 percent compared to the same period last year. The chairman of the AfD parliamentary group in the German Bundestag, Alice Weidel, explains:
“The drastic increase in personal bankruptcies since the beginning of the year is just a foretaste of what awaits us in the near future. The dramatic consequences of the government’s disastrous lockdown policies are beginning to take shape. The reserves of more and more citizens have been used up. Along with companies, the people are increasingly going under economically. A development that can be postponed but not prevented by the gigantic record debt.
“The government will try to maintain the status quo with the money of future generations until election day.
“The damage has essentially already been done, but it could at least be limited by finally ending all lockdown measures immediately. The government still does not seem to be ready for this.”
