Political situation in Spain – why I stay in Denmark during my holiday

In Uncategorized on July 19, 2018 at 06:03

The local government at the Balearic Islands are trying to re-brand their islands which for more than 30 years have been known as party islands. What is means is that they are asking for unemployment. For decades it has been islands you go to in order to drink and get wasted. Properly because the islands do not contain anything else which can inspire people to visit them.

Why do an area ask for more unemployment?

Is it the immigration crisis? Do they want massive unemployment which they know from their historical past will provoke people voting for parties offering right-wing politics?

It could be the case and Franco did offer peace and improved business to a run-down country.

But maybe they should also look at supporting the Catalonia case for independence.

I as a tourist will stay at home and I will recommend that others do the same while they figure out what future they want at the islands which will no longer attract tourists.

Summer day 43 – why I stay in Denmark during my holiday

In culture on July 16, 2018 at 07:24

It has not rained for 43 days. My garden is dying and I have not used my outdoor grill even one time this year. There is also a ban against it.

Still I remain in Denmark for good reasons.

A number of places are so worn down so they simply will stop tourism.

In Italy some cities have issued a ban on sitting down and eat your lunch. When I visited Paris a while ago, at all time I carried a water bottle and bought bread to eat on the move. To ban eating food and drink water in the streets is the same as saying that you will not have visitors at all.

I understand that they will force the tourists to eat at their over-prized restaurants who charge too much for everything. A meal at the cheapest place in Venice will set you down 1,000 euros so who would actually eat at restaurants in this city?

None. Policing against sitting down and eat your own food is basically a ban on all visitors. I can only urge people to stay away.

That is the reason tourism in Europe is dying out. I stay at home and recommend people to do this also. Hopefully staying in your own country will cause the European Union to break. Jean-Claude Juncker a person who had done a lot of damage to Europe during a life wandering around in a drunken stage should retire, so each nation can brick themselves up and live in peace

Stop for celebrating success in Denmark?

In culture on July 1, 2018 at 10:31

Typical van with student. This particular truck has not been implicated in any of the incidents mentioned in this article.

So far 7 students have been injured, one critically. Reports from various part of the country also speaks of poor navigating resulting in some of the students by accident coming too close to neighborhoods where people are not born to success in life resulting in assaults and egging.

The Red-Green Alliance in Denmark represented in our parliament speaks of a ban of the old tradition where students travel in trucks going from one family after another celebrating their success. The rules have been tightened over the years. Many years ago they were driven by horses but live animals combined with unlimited amounts of alcohol as the tradition demand made it too dangerous. A number of safety precautions have also been introduced but as the politicians stated maybe it is time to abandon the tradition as whole.

The number of ghettos will be reduced but the present course planned by the parliament is aiming at expelling the poor underprivileged people from the cities which will increase the risk of attacks when the trucks is going from city to city. Thanks to the rather complicated structure of Danish high schools, students no longer select the nearest high school but as result of their long-term goal they have to attend a school which provide the topics they need.

The student who was critical hurt fell from the truck while they were driving. The other 6 students were caught in heavy traffic where all the drivers have to drive aggressively to be competitive and when the truck had to break hard because a car changed line in front of it, the students were trown around in the back putting 6 of them in hospital.

And then of course there are the attacks because the truck made shortcuts through areas controlled by youth gangs instead of the police from the central government in Copenhagen.

Personally I find it sad if this tradition came to and end. While I graduated high school, I never got to ride such a truck because I was forced to work that day (economy was hard back then). That does not mean that I will rob others of celebrating their success. I hope that they find a solution so the students can continue to celebrate in the future.

Corruption in Denmark – verdict

In business culture on June 27, 2018 at 20:48

A number of people some public servicemen working for a public region in Denmark as well as some random sales people from a IT-company named Atea were sentenced in court because they spend money which Atea had hidden on a special account for later use on traveling and dinners.

Every time some public customer bought equipment part of the sales price were put into this account, so the IT-department could buy spare parts without asking for a budget for the purchase which involved politicians resulting in a long and difficult path towards making decisions. Using this account the people in the region could be productive instead of spending days in office unable to work because they needed a mouse, keyboard or even a monitor when things broke.

Good idea but illegal according to the law.

Now not only former Sales people at Atea were convicted in this case but also the firm itself. In all their contracts with the purchase organization at the state called SKI there is an anti-corruption clause. We are all waiting to see the contacts canceled and new tenders being made public, so the tax-payers in Denmark can get cheaper service.

Because corruption is stealing from all Danes.

If the state purchase organization SKI does not cancel all the contracts, we must approach the parliament and demand justice. While corruption is OK for Danish firms if it takes place abroad where the local market demand it as the verdict was in the Carl Bro (Grontmij) case, it has never been accepted inside Denmark. Our local market were clean in the past. Until Atea came around and changed everything under the control of Kunøes companies.

Kunøe who has a past where companies went bankrupt with various allegations about values being sold under price to other companies under his control so far has been able to lawyer himself out of every trouble.

People can google Guideix and Mondo combined with his name to read more about his dark past.

Will he be able to strongarm SKI and the parliament into stop speaking about ending the contracts due to corruption? Will the tax-payers in Denmark once again see people get off just because they are wearing business suits?

Only the future will tell.

Going to lose my pension

In culture on May 31, 2018 at 14:21

I have saved a lot of money in pension funds. Now where GDPR is there, I get all such strange letters asking me if I still want to be registered. Then they write up and down about a lot of strange things. I do not understand this legal stuff, so whenever I see a letter mentioning the European Union I must assume that it is something that supports the corrupt politicians down in the European Union and let the mails be unanswered.

As I understand it the pension funds then have no other choice but to delete me and confiscate the money for themselves. I have to suffer the loss because I am not a lawyer but in my mind and daily life I get to speaking angry about the European Union and that is a small comfort.
