Editorial Excerpt | The recycling speech

In the prime minister’s self-congratulatory extoling of the past year’s political accomplishments, which unfortunately has become a requirement during the annual opening address to parliament, she praised the government for spending more money on this, that and the other new programme.

That’s the tax-and-spend Socialdemokraterne we know: if we make the world’s most expensive public sector even more expensive and if we just recycle more [an initiative put forward in the address], everything will be okay.

In reality, the government is out of new ideas and its voters have abandoned it for the opposition.

The government has decided not to sweat the big stuff, but instead hope for miracles for as long as it can until it has to call an election.

Their suffering should be over quickly.
