This is just to note that this week has seen a number of fascinating brawls in Danish politics.
- The chairman of the Social Democratic Party attacked – no, not the government, but her opposition colleagues in the Social Liberal Party for giving too little space for the Social Democrats. Given that the Social Democrats still are more than twice as large as the Social Liberals, that was a hillarious piece of criticism which has left many political commentators stunned.
- The law and order spokesman of the Liberal Party (that’s a woman as well) attacked – no, not the opposition, but her party comrades in the government for undermining civil rights in the proposals for anti-terror legislation that the government is preparing.
- Everybody attacked the Minister for Consumer Affairs who found himself in a really dirty affair concering lacking or inefficient food safety controls. You may want to think twice before you order a steak in a Danish restaurant.
