It could be a sleepless night for those negotiating the German government coalition pact in Berlin: today is the deadline set by Angela Merkel to finalise the so-called exploratory phase of the talks to form a three-party Conservative-Liberal-Green coalition. If they manage to do that, the running assumption will be that those three parties will take a few more weeks to iron out the last details before they form the next German government.
