This week’s editorial: Three Stooges in revival

The did as expected by confirming a general election for November 1, and now the wagons are out across the country, although weeks ago she got a head start on a red bus filled with roses to hand out to reluctant voters.

Radicals demanded a general election to prevent the establishment of an asylum center in Africa, but the general election would have come in half a year anyway.

This time the difference between the red and blue party is not particularly large.

Experiencing turbulence
The economy is generally fine, unemployment is low, the pandemic is under control and the minks are dead. ‘’ is nevertheless the buzz word. Since Putin stepped into ’s shoes in February and invaded , a lot of unrest has hit the Western world – included.

is no longer a word from the past – it is here. And energy in particular has become a problem. The public has to cope with a temperature drop from 21 to 19 degrees Celsius in offices and schools, petrol prices have risen 10-15 per cent, but the worst hit are and electricity.

We have seen gas prices more than quadruple to the extent that homeowners are living in fear of foreclosure because they are unable to meet their living expenses.

Climate … of uncertainty
That threat will be the main issue of the election. Politicians from left to right are digging around the state to create solutions to ease the pain, but no one knows what it will take.

Everything is connected with an uncertainty right now. The war in Ukraine seems endless, and we can only expect the unexpected – the mysterious way the pipelines in the were blown up is an example of that, as is the recent fall in house prices – up to 5 to 10 percent.

All this means that long-term climate considerations are somewhat suspended and green turns green as we await a winter that could be bitterly cold despite global warming.

Let the journey begin!
So while the media focus should have been on the upcoming COP27 in (November 6-18), we’ll have to settle for the Three Stooges on tour.

Expect a lot of sweet talk as the three PM candidates share a lot of common ground: a tough immigration policy, a tough remedy to fix the health care system after the pandemic, a commitment to defense spending to improve security – and they all hate Mr Putin.

Whoever wins won’t suffer financially, like crises or no crises, the taxes have poured in and the state can easily pay for all the mink that might not have been killed in the first place.

If there is a potential punchline, it may be the case with FE manager Lars Kjeldsen, who is still very quiet and need-to-know. It is the Danish way of ignoring real problems.
