I am glad that I am not in Sweden at the moment... Look what "our" Prime Minister is doing:
Persson led Sweden’s tributes to the Palestinian leader, who died in a Paris hospital on Thursday. Persson said that he felt “sadness” for the passing of a “great political leader”, reported Dagens Nyheter. He was less equivocal in his praise of Arafat than many of his counterparts in other countries, and credited Arafat with creating a national identity for the Palestinian people. ...
While most other Western countries will be represented at the funeral by their foreign ministers, Persson has opted to attend the ceremony in person. This reflects Sweden’s longstanding close relationship with the Palestinian leadership. (James Savage, The Local, 11/11/04.)
This weekend I will report on an election going on in Sopron, if I get hold of a newspaper written in English.
