Dead Heat for the Reichstag

German elections too close to call, says BBC....
Challenger Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) have gained only the slimmest of leads, polls suggest.

Some estimates give the CDU the same number of seats as Gerhard Schroeder's centre-left Social Democrats (SDP).

Mrs Merkel, the pre-poll favourite to become chancellor, looks unlikely to be able to form her preferred coalition and may have to join with the SPD.
We can be sure that Papa Bear's watching with bated breath.
