In fact, it was Minister of transport, Andreas Scheuer (CSU), in an attempt to convince news presenter Marietta Slomka in the “heute-journal” from the recent diesel compromise between the government and the car industry.

Slomka had not criticised that the compromise will help many drivers of old, dirty diesel cars really. For the on Thursday agreed to 3000 Euro discount of the industry, you could buy a new car.
