Straight, No Chaser: No way to delay that trouble comin’ every day
Aug 27, 2016 7:00 am| by TheCopenhagenPost

Anyone keeping up with the news over the last month or so must surely have reacted as I did, with increasing amounts of incredulity and shock as one outrage succeeded another.

All over the Western World, people are increasingly discontented with the political system or simply turning their backs on it. Extremism and isolationism is on the rise. And who can ignore the elephant in the room: ‘The Donald’? If anyone had told me two years ago that Donald Trump would almost certainly be the Republican … Continue reading Straight, No Chaser: No cure for the summertime blues?

Straight, No Chaser: Full of the joys of spring
May 8, 2016 7:00 am| by TheCopenhagenPost

In the spring, a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of … industrial-scale tax fiddling? Brexit? Another potentially disastrous open-ended war in the Middle East? An economic downturn? Donald Trump being elected US president? As the Bard put it: “Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,” and how right he was. Bothersome … Continue reading Straight, No Chaser: Full of the joys of spring

Straight, No Chaser: Down on the farm
Mar 20, 2016 7:00 am| by TheCopenhagenPost

Recent events have certainly proved the durability of the old adage ‘a week is a long time in politics’. The Venstre-led minority government looked more vulnerable than usual, and with the ‘Gordian knot’ confrontation with their Konservative allies and subsequent resignation of the minister for environment and food, the wheels seemed to be well and … Continue reading Straight, No Chaser: Down on the farm

Feb 6, 2016 7:00 am| by TheCopenhagenPost

The blue touchpaper on the first New Year’s fireworks had barely been lit before a far brighter squib lit up the Danish media firmament. Buried in Queen Margrethe’s New Year message, just before the bit paying tribute to the armed forces and the police and sending greetings to Greenland and the Faroe Islands, she let … Continue reading Straight, no Chaser: Of cabbages and kings

Straight, No Chaser: In, out, shake it all about
Dec 12, 2015 7:00 pm| by TheCopenhagenPost

On December 3, Danes voted convincingly (53.1 to 46.9 percent, with a 72 percent turnout) to maintain the status quo in the referendum on the opt-out from European Union justice and home affairs policies that Denmark secured as part of the Edinburgh Agreement in 1992. A ‘Yes’ vote would have converted Denmark’s current full opt-out on home and justice matters into a case-by-case opt-out similar to that currently held by Ireland … Continue reading Straight, No Chaser: In, out, shake it all about

Straight, No Chaser: Bats in the Belfry
Oct 31, 2015 7:00 am| by TheCopenhagenPost

  As anyone going to their local supermarket or up the high street of any big town in Denmark can hardly have failed to notice, it is that time of year again. No, I’m not referring to the C-word but to the H-word: Halloween. Outside my local Netto are large boxes full of pumpkins. Toy … Continue reading Straight, No Chaser: Bats in the Belfry

Sep 19, 2015 7:00 am| by Chris C

The heady days of summer are well and truly over and most people are now firmly ensconced back at work. Perhaps not all – our politicians only really return to proper work on the first Tuesday in October, when Parliament officially opens. However, there has been a fair amount of political sparring during the summer … Continue reading Straight, No Chaser: Guns or butter?

Straight, No Chaser: Too old to rock and roll?
Aug 8, 2015 9:40 am| by TheCopenhagenPost

  Earlier this year when the Roskilde Festival unveiled its program and Paul McCartney was named as headliner, there was a fair amount of critical tutting: he’s too old, past it, irrelevant to today’s young music lovers, watering down the brand of the Roskilde Festival etc, etc. A sovereign experience However, as the subsequent reviews … Continue reading Straight, No Chaser: Too old to rock and roll?
