In der “Berliner Blase” wird Politik gemacht. Hier streiten sich Politiker, Lobbyisten, Beamte und Gewerkschafter um jede noch so kleine Gesetzesänderung. Das ganze wird von den Medien verfolgt und kontrolliert. Sie setzen die Themen und spitzen zu. Dabei wird stets nach dem Kompromiss gesucht. Es geht nicht um die lauteste Stimme sondern um das, was politisch realistisch und durchsetzbar ist.
