The Weekly Wrap – Sunday, Nov 10
If you're anything like us, your week may sometimes feel like a blur.
That's why The Copenhagen Post is trying something different on Sundays. We will take a deep breath, a step back and a second look at some of the stories that made up the past seven days both in our printed weekly newspaper and online.
Here is just a taste of the week that was:
– Forget red vs blue, in our cover story this week we explain why when it comes to Copenhagen's local elections, it's more about two wheels vs four
– While we're on the upcoming local elections, this week our party profiles looked at Enhedslisten, Liberal Alliance and a whole bunch of parties you may not have heard of
– Venstre's Pia Allerslev may have done her election chances well by riding in to save a popular Østerbro café that was threatened with closure
– They say all politics is local, and if that old maxim holds true there are a lot of local Venstre politicians surely wishing the 'Luxury Lars' mess would just stop already
– At the same time police were once again making busts in the famed freetown, a police officer was making waves for bucking the party line and recommending the legalisation of cannabis
– In a late-week surprise, parliament pledged Danish troops and a naval vessel to the UN mission to destroy Syria's chemical weapons
– In other international news, we learned that Denmark has a very special place within US intelligence
– On the culture front, we asked if Nikolaj Lie Kaas was on the verge of an international breakthrough, and a Danish translator said the conditions he faced while working on Dan Brown's novel made him yearn to break out
– Like he does every week, managing editor Ben Hamilton walked you through the best of the week's entertainment options as only he can
– And finally, although it is now fading from our memory, the effects of the October 28 storm are still being felt in the form of massive clean-up bills and a third confirmed death
We'll see you again on Monday, but until then remember that you can also hear more from us – if you so wish – via Facebook and Twitter, and via our new daily newsletter, The Evening Post.
