    Today swedish prime minister Fredrik Reinfeldt presented his solution to the mounting problem of how to fund all the pensions to the increasing amount of older people. The swedish PM wants swedes to work 10 more years until they retire and retire at 75 and not at 65 under the current system.

    This finally ends the speculation that our PM hates young people and do not want to give them a fair chance in the jobmarket as we now know he does.

    Media frenzy in Sweden as convicted murderer Michelle Gustafsson falls in love with murderer Isakin Jonsson in jail and get engaged. Michelle is dubbed "the vampire" after drinking the blood from the boyfriend she killed, and Isakin "the cannibal" as he ate his girlfriend after killing her. They are allowed to be online and have their own blogs.

    Isakin recently attacked swedish crime professor Leif GW Persson on his blog who last week said on his crime tv show that Isakin suffers from schizophrenia. Tonight GW apologised for that and corrected himself. GW as he's called in Sweden will have his crime novels turned into a tv series in USA in the near future.

    Imagine the kids they may have:

    Sweden is slowly but surely moving into that time of the year when the schools close to celebrate "sportlovet", which is more or less like our winter version of the american spring break. The break is split into different periods over February depending on where you live in Sweden so that the whole country is not celebrating it at the same time which would create a problem for hotels and the companies owning the ski slopes.

    As usual Thailand is the big holiday destination for those craving more sun and skin cancer which is reportedly a bigger problem among swedes since they started to travel to Thailand in the winter. The skin specialists in Sweden call these holidays "cancer trips".

    Those that stay at home in Sweden and go skiing often end up posing in skiing gear at after ski parties without actually ever going down the slopes.

    Swedish comedian Henrik Dorsin claims that Sweden is "the most political correct country in the world" in an interview with The Local, a newssite in english about Sweden. Dorsin goes onto saying "“You can’t say anything in Sweden without offending people, and that creates a very tense environment.”

    Dorsin plays the boss in the swedish version of "The Office" and says that while you cannot make comedy about some things in Sweden cause of this political correctness it at the same time opens the doors for other things to joke about.

    Full interview:

    Ulrika ka ka ka Jonsson says she will abandon England altogether and settle down in her native Sweden soon. She says that she wants to live on an island in the swedish archipelago. Fellow swedes admire her for putting up with english life so long. Bad piping, badly heated houses and a food culture that is the worst in the world.

    Welcome home Ulrika ka ka ka!

    Socialist stand up comedian Claes Malmberg commented on the film "The Iron Lady", about Maggie Thatcher, by saying that Meryl Streep just imitates Thatcher in the film rather than portraying her as an actress. He says that he is surprised she has been given an award already and is up for another one soon.

    Claes is a well known socialist bordering on being a communist and it is highly unlikely he would be able to see the film without judging it because of who it is about.

    Urban, I know it's asking a lot so you don't have to bother, but would it be possible for you to translate the lyrics to this song parody in English?



    Swedish blogger Johan Norberg (who only occasionally posts in English) wrote about it in Swedish here.

    Google's messy translation of the blog post into English:

    Superb. For a little while ago, Peter Santesson and Sanna Rayman a nice, festive and satiric prog rock parody that made ​​fun of the fight for Slussens conservation. In such a context, the author of the original, of course, laugh, argue, or suppress it. Or you can as Elvis Costello call police.

    Today Wiehe company United Stage Artists from them to Santesson and Rayman and requires them to "immediately remove it from your web page and any other context." In addition, they have been in touch to blogs that linked to the song and demanded that they remove the links. Note: Not to get away Wiehe song, or even a cover of it, but a parody.

    So maybe they do in Cuba and other communist dictatorships, but not in a democratic country. So inspired by scaber Nestor and Isobel Hadley-Kamptz I now intend to help Wiehe get acquainted with the free network and Streisandeffekten . And I encourage other bloggers to do the same. The liberal voices must not be silenced by the state and capital!

    And Mike - may I call you Mike? - To threaten me to remove the link, you may well call yourself? We have a lot to talk about previously.
    Just wondering what this is all about. It appears to be about protests against redeveloping Slussen?

    Saw other Swedish bloggers posting the video in protest of the attempt at censorship.

    For some reason Google translates the name Mikael Wiehe into Elvis Costello. Weird. At first I thought this was about Elvis Costello!

    From Wiki:

    Mikael Christian Wiehe (born April 10, 1946 in Stockholm) is a Swedish singer, multi-instrumentalist and composer. As the main songwriter and driving force of Hoola Bandoola Band he was also one of the most important people in the proggmovement.

    ***
    On February 24, 2007, Wiehe performed at a festival in Malmö, labeled as a "solidarity party for the Cuban Revolution", which was organized by the Swedish-Cuban Association, the Revolutionary Communist Youth, the Swedish Communist Party and others. The ambassador of Cuba to Sweden, Ernesto Meléndez Bachs, also held a speech at the festival. In an interview in Kvällsposten, Wiehe said that "Cuba has the best record on human rights in the region"[1] and in an interview with Sveriges Radio he said that he would "hesitate" to label the country as a dictatorship.[2]

    Another blogger talks about it here.

    Here's the messy Google translation into English:

    A protest song against the pee-stinking ugly lock has been released today. Song to a gate of the True plong Rayman And The Elements Santesson Orchestra. Text: Sanna Rayman and Peter Santesson, Music: Elvis Costello Production: inslag.se

    Sanna Rayman and Peter Santesson recently made ​​a parody of Mikael Wiehe Song For Freedom. This was not appreciated by his production company who not only ordered Rayman and Santesson to remove the song, but also people who just linked to it! Never mind that parodies are exempt copyright ...

    Streisand effect is now calling on all to spread this song as much as possible. So, friends, brothers and sisters, for now, to help spread the satire and highlight the laughter of those gray days.

    Personally, I in my loneliness sit and giggle a little quiet for a Communist who now uses the capital ..... haha ​​yea you get the picture what I mean
    So, yeah, would like to know the lyrics to that song parody and/or some info on what got the commie so upset that he was trying to crack down on people linking to the YouTube. And, looking at what you've written in this thread, I thought you might have something to say about this? (BTW, I like this thread!)

    What the fook!

    Just saw bits of a documentary about Slussen. It is an ongoing thing in Stockholm where those in power wants to modernise the place and the local people feel it should be the same.

    You find the words to the song here so just try and use google translate:

    Ah, thanks! That's helpful, though google's translater isn't so good.

    From the translation I gather it's a run-down, crumbing place that smells of urine, but it's being romanticized by lovers of the old welfare state who don't want anything altered from the way it was when they were born? "Now open your Locks, let salt lake flood, flood rats in city hall..." That's how the translation ends.
