Our guests: 

Matthew Karnitschnig, Chief Europe Correspondent, Politico.
He says:  "Germany will remain stable with or without Merkel. What this crisis shows is how mature Germany's democracy has become." 



Judy Dempsey, Senior Fellow, Carnegie Europe.
She says: "Germany is Europe's newest problem. The collapse of coalition talks in Berlin will have serious repurcussions for the rest of the EU."




Anna Sauerbrey, Senior Editor, Der Tagesspiegel.
She says: "Germany is not turning into Weimar. But there's a new disdain for compromise in this country that is deeply worrying."
