The FDP Federal Deputy Kubicki sharply criticizes Economics Minister Habeck – and calls his frequent apologies a strategy. Kubicki also questions the energy policy decisions of the Greens and says that the other traffic light parties should not serve their clientele.
The deputy FDP federal chairman Wolfgang Kubicki attacked Federal Minister of Economics Robert Habeck (Greens). Kubicki told the “Welt am Sonntag”: “We have to be careful with every law like a gundog that nothing is cheated in there. Habeck then likes to say, oh sorry, an employee did something wrong. You can also say: This is a strategy.”
Kubicki went on to say that the Greens were in the process of questioning the Autobahn 20, which is vital for Schleswig-Holstein’s survival, although it had been agreed in the coalition agreement to implement the planning of the federal transport route plan. “We have also agreed that we will produce gas in the North Sea, but the energy minister shows no signs of implementing this, but travels around the world to buy gas,” said Kubicki. “It damages the shared spirit that is necessary. Therefore it is necessary to say: We defend the coalition. But not when we are the only ones and the rest only serve their clientele.”
Kubicki also questioned the nuclear phase-out in the spring. The three nuclear power plants Isar 2 (Bavaria), Neckarwestheim 2 (Baden-Württemberg) and Emsland (Lower Saxony) should be able to continue operating beyond the end of the year until April 15, 2023 at the latest.
“It is already clear that, despite the current gas levels, our security of supply is not guaranteed in April next year in the medium term,” said Kubicki. “This winter will teach us that it makes sense to use whatever resources we have. Also for reasons of climate protection,” said Kubicki. “We brought the lignite-fired power plants back on line. These are the worst polluters we can imagine. And yet the nuclear power plants are to be shut down.”
