Frank Schäffler is back on the barricade. Schäffler? This is the FDP politician who once recommended that the cash-strapped Greeks sell a few of their islands. Today he is fighting at the forefront against Habeck’s heating law. He calls it a “nuclear bomb for our country”.

A man from the day before yesterday, one for the popular star column “What actually does…?”. But suddenly he’s back. Present as in its most formative times. And no one can really explain why.
