I am of course deeply shocked. It is a few days ago I spoke with him last.
this is the sound of the words from the Liberal party member of the European parliament, journalist Morten Løkkegaard, after the news on the Danish tv star and politician, Ole Stephensens early death.
- We sit together in the municipal council in Gentofte. And we have a tradition just to eat a little after each kommunalbestyrelsesmøde. I talked with him as late as Monday. It is absolutely unreal. I have not at all heard about, that he was going to be sick or anything, so it comes completely out of the blue for me, says Morten Løkkegaard.
- of course, I am deeply shocked, says Ole Stephensens friend, Morten Løkkegaard.
Ole Stephensen was in addition to being a well-known tv-profile, also a skilled and very knowledgeable politician. He sat in the city council for The Conservative party in Gentofte, and stood for Parliament for The Conservatives in Taastrup and Brøndbykredsen.
He was in a good mood, and of good courage, and when I talked with him, there was nothing at all. We talked about the family and Brussels, and yes, Conservative. He liked the European policy. So, we talked a lot about, says Morten Løkkegaard.
