hey i really enjoyed your perspicacious analysis of the elephant in the room and agree about the Ministers and Birgitte.
Hey, thanks for this, it sounds very interesting! i can’t believe i’m actually getting into politics, the thought strikes me that it’s tantamount to my secret reading of the sports pages lately! ok it started out of utter boredom with my paper one day and then it progressed to actively following the John Terry and Luis Suarvez cases. Mainly because no other Columnists were writing about them. Did you know that Wayne Rooney’s tweets for ex. are taken very seriously indeed in the sports world?!
is there a group for me?!
(“hello,my name is clarissima and i’m a sports pages reader…i can’t stop..:) now i actually save up titbits and casually toss them out to guys i know..it seems such a straightforward uncomplicated world, well apart from having it’s own politics like at the moment, and girls, there’s men in shorts! (sexism alert beep beep:)
on a more serious note, yes, that was terrible about the assassination of the Swedish Prime Minister, i can’t believe i didn’t know about it until i saw it related on the Nordic Noir programme on BBC4 (our spiritual home) one night. Awful. The commentators who were all Scandinavian linked that incident to what they called the “loss of innocence” in Scandinavia generally, that before that everybody thought they were safe.
That’s terrible if it was for those reasons, somehow that seems worse than the lone mad gunman theory they posited in the programme.
