The new SPÖ federal party leader clearly does not have friends only in his own faction: Andreas Bübler (50) is now being accused from within his own faction of de facto in his role as federal councilor. Not one of the most hardworking politicians. (from March 23) Quote from an SPO insider: “This doesn’t look good for our image at all.”
In any case, the Red Party leader certainly does not want to enrich himself with this extra job: Bübler reported in May that he would donate his Federal Council salary (37,502 euros for this year) to the Volkshilfe.
However, eXXpress informants say that the key Federal Council member’s work record is the main problem: “The party president has so far appeared as a speaker only twice at eight Federal Council meetings – and at these for only 16 minutes in total Said seven months.”
“You have to calculate what this work record means for taxpayers,” said the SPO insider, who is clearly not one of Andreas Babler’s closest friends: 16 minutes of speaking time and 4,687.80 Monthly salary In gross terms, the cost of each one-minute speech of the SPÖ federal party leader before the Federal Council would be 2,050.91 euros. Of course, there will surely be some other Federal Council members who say even less about themselves as speakers – but Bübler should know that they are “being monitored more closely”.
At the SPÖ federal party conference this weekend, if Andreas Bübler speaks for a full hour in Graz, delegates can consider themselves lucky – based on the value-performance ratio of their Federal Council work, this hour The price will be 123,9054.60 euros.
Speaking of valuable: The SPÖ leader’s far-left comrades-in-arms are still trying to downgrade Andreas Babler’s holiday home in Cyprus (which eXXpress reports on) to the level of a workers’ hostel – 5 -Star Palazzo Columbia Beach Resort. It has become so expensive. So it’s perfectly acceptable that “the Robin Hood of the people humiliated by capital” (quote from eXXpress columnist Bernhard Heinzelmayr) would have lived there. Many users who sent their comments to eXXpress see it differently: they write about double standards, lack of credibility and the insensitivity of a Labor Party federal leader to book a luxury vacation in Cyprus in very difficult times. Are.
