It's a pretty positive article.
Saying among other things that the Bavarians like royalty.
If true. Is it because Bavaria had until fairly recently its own royal house?
Because Bavarians are (dare I say traditionally) more conservative?
Or because Bavaria has a rich and cultivated, historical tradition?

The article also mentions a demonstration at the Glyptotek. Not aimed at QMII (I trust) but due to someone being deported.

Bavarians traditionally adore their own Royal family, the Wittelsbachs, and love Royal guests. Plus the Federal State owns so many former princely, prince-bishop's and Royal residences that staying here is quite a lovely time even for very pampered Royals. It surely has something to do with the fact that the country is quite traditional, but in addition the Bavarian people are well-minded when they can receive foreign guests and you see that in every place the guests are accommodated (payed for) by the people. It helps of course that Bavaria is quite a rich country and the nobility, especially the Royal family was allowed to keep their estates and money after WWI, so the "High Society" always has had noble and Royal members.

As for the judicial system (and that's the other side of the coin) is very strict and enforces the laws and when there is a leverage for the bureaucracy, the decidions are most of the times harder than in more northern Federal states. So there is good reasons to protest against the way asylum seekers are forced to leave the country when the courts decided they have no reason to stay here. IMHO, of course.

Good grief! She smokes unfiltered?
