He's not yet finished. He said that several times. That is why Gregor Gysi, who had already said goodbye to politics, once again competed in his Berlin regular constituency Treptow-Köpenick and has secured the move into the Bundestag with one of the three direct mandates of the Left we have agreed in the Bundestag. A glass building, more than 6000 offices, endlessly long corridors. Opposite the CDU parliamentary group. Here is one of the three Gysi study - alongside his constituency office in Treptow and his law firm in Charlottenburg. There is a Marx sculpture behind the desk, the biography of Willy Brandt in the shelf next to that of Walter Ulbricht, the birth certificate of Brecht next to the Bible. And photos with Peter Maffay and Jan Böhmermann. A large picture hangs on the wall on which the trained cattle breeder welds an excavator shovel. Gysi comes in a good mood, with a dark suit and blue polo shirt, the secretary makes a compliment a new hairstyle. She brings him tea, he takes off the mask, shakes his hand to greet. "I'm twice vaccinated," explains the 73-year-old. For fear he lacks his imagination anyway. In his autobiography "A life is too little" he writes: "I am unable to think about risks." A few pages later, he explains that he can say something on every topic and tells of his appearance at Günther Jauch: than at An ARD valley group had to be changed at short notice on Sunday evening, all participants were replaced. Except Gysi. "Gysi doesn't matter, he can talk about anything," Jauch had explained at the time. So now over the fashion industry. Sure, says Gysi. He is not a specialist, he later says in conversation. "The specialist understands so much that he can never explain it." He is a generalist: "I don't understand anything, but I can explain everything." In addition, his team would have said that he should talk about something else than ever about politics.Textilwirtschaft: We ask for a look from outside to the fashion industry for the 75th anniversary of the TW. What does it look like? Gregor Gysi: I find your industry very exciting for two reasons: Most textile companies that existed in the GDR have been received, the production was shifted to the so-called low-wage countries. There is often child labor there, and some textiles are so cheap that it can't be any different. I always appeal to the customers-except, of course, the Hartz IV recipients. So that the incentive for this type of manufacture is reduced. But you shouldn't overwhelm the middle class, they have to be able to do that too. The approach is correct, but the details are not cleverly regulated. On the one hand, they are not consistent enough. But the medium -sized companies can hardly trace the chain back to India or Bangladesh. When I look at your industry, many moral questions arise.
And what is the second reason that stimulates it in the industry? There are brilliant male designers who have much more on it than we bores.I have the greatest respect for them.
