• Sweden Fails

    Hello Everybody,

    Well, at least the King of Sweden is honest and does not have
    a nose like Pinocchio -

    Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf has described 2020 as a "terrible" year
    and says the national coronavirus strategy has failed.

    He made the remarks as part of an annual TV programme reviewing the
    year with the royal family. Sweden has been criticised for its
    unorthodox approach to handling the pandemic, relying more on
    guidelines and never imposing a full lockdown. The country has seen
    nearly 350,000 cases and more than 7,800 deaths.

    "I think we have failed. We have a large number who have died and that
    is terrible," the king says in the programme. "The people of Sweden
    have suffered tremendously in difficult conditions. One thinks of all
    the family members who have happened to be unable to say goodbye to
    their deceased family members. I think it is a tough and traumatic
    experience not to be able to say a warm goodbye."

    When asked if he was afraid of being infected with Covid-19, the king
    - who is 74 - said: "Lately, it has felt more obvious, it has crept
    closer and closer. That's not what you want."

    I think we have failed.

    It's too early to say that. It aint over 'til the fat lady sings. Nowhere is it more obvious that in the white house when waiting for Emily Murphy to perform...

    Hello Björn,

    I think we have failed.

    It's too early to say that. It aint over 'til the fat lady sings. Nowhere is
    it more obvious that in the white house when waiting for Emily Murphy to perform...

    We have the Blue Room in the White House.
    Where The Fat Man has always wanted to sing.
