    Sounds as if someone is covering up a leak.

    “An den Angaben sei “überhaupt nichts dran”, erklärte ein Loewe-Sprecher am Sonntag.”

    We’ll just have to ‘wait and see’ what happens.

      1. If we all hope, and join in forces letting the important people know what we are hoping for, we can make it happen
