Norbert Walter-Borjans has been elected the new leader of SPD, the social democratic party of Germany. Walter-Borjans and his running mate Saskia Esken were the candidates of the left-wing of SPD, and they are strongly opposed to neoliberalism. They want to leave the Grand Coalition with CDU, the main conservative party of Germany.
I vote for the SPD, and I supported Walter-Borjans in the SPD leadership election, because I'm a socialist.

Is Borjan heavily anti-Semitic, adoring of terrorists and totally confused about his policy towards the EU, then?

I'm comparing Borjans to Corbyn, because the economic policies of Borjans are quite similar to the economic policies of Corbyn. Borjans doesn't otherwise resemble Corbyn.

Neoliberalism has impacted Germany far less than Britain, but neoliberalism has still impacted Germany a lot. Gerhard Schröder, a social democrat, who was the Chancellor of Germany from 1998 to 2005, supported the Third Way along with Tony Blair, and his government enacted the Hartz IV reform, which cut unemployment benefits significantly. Norbert Walter-Borjans is opposed to Hartz IV. Deutsche Post and Deutsche Telekom have been privatized, while Deutsche Bahn fortunately remains state-owned. University education is tuition-free in Germany, and the Federal Republic of Germany offers universal health care.
I'm strongly opposed to the Third Way. I support old-fashioned social democracy. I prefer Helmut Schmidt and Clement Atlee to Gerhard Schröder and Tony Blair.
