This whole BBC report http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-42594246 including analysis by Damien McGuinness, BBC Berlin correspondent, and not even a single use of the word weak.
'More than three months have passed since the elections - the longest period of coalition-building Germany has ever known.It's not a crisis. And there is a caretaker government. But it does mean that important decisions about the future of Germany, and the EU, are on hold.'
The British Prime Minister, Theresa May, is weak because she needs the support of the DUP but Mrs Merkel isn't, even though she's only head of a caretaker government? That's the wonder of the BBC's narrative.
