Germany's Social Democrats (SPD) are becoming unelectable after the head of their youth wing JUSOS called for companies such as BMW to be collectively owned, works council chiefs have warned. JUSOS chief Kevin Kuehnert, 29, unleashed a storm of protest, including from party allies, this week when he said that 'without collectivization, overcoming capitalism is not thinkable', citing BMW specifically. The uproar took on a new dimension with the publication on Saturday of comments from works council chiefs, traditionally among the party's biggest supporters, who said the SPD was alienating itself from workers.
