Another split in the AfD

From yesterday's EUObserver:
Germany's anti-euro Alternative for Germany (AfD) leader, Bernd Lucke, announced on Wednesday he is quitting the party he helped found, reports AFP. Lucke, who is also an MEP with the European Conservatives and Reformists Group, said he left because the party is pushing "Islamophobic and xenophobic" views.
One cannot help thinking of several wonderful scenes from The Life of Brian.

  1. Is Lucke perhaps one of the Skederalists similar to UKIP circa 1999?

    As a rather nice G & S tune ( from "Patience" I think) went
    " I hear the soft note of the echoing voice"
