As a well-read journalist to ask pointed questions to those in power, the result can be revealing, not least about the artist I'm interviewing allow themselves to be provoked. This was demonstrated in a 26-minute-long interview with the minister of foreign affairs of the German He to tough interview programmes 'Conflict zone' (17/6). Ann Linde's response was not only weak, it was a disaster.
the Minister of foreign affairs, wanted to play down the fact that the Swedish coronastrategin is different from that of other countries, and stressed that the government in particular has introduced legally binding measures, such as advice on the keeping of social distance, work from home, and to wash their hands.
there is, of course, is not true.
Folkhälsomyndighetens general guidelines should be adhered to, but they are not legally binding. Or believe the Lies that the police haffar it is found that the okynnesjobba in the office?
L himself, skidded on the truth of the matter it impossible for her not to come up with a wild tirade against the journalist, whom she accused, and of the danger of untruth, like ”throw out, Sweden out of the EU” and to ”behave in a way that there is some kind of world champion who will get the disease, and are not”.
It is possible to defend Sweden's decision not to close down the society as a whole. However, in order to build up the confidence of the internationally divergent lines, the government must begin to account for how it's supposed to, what evidence you have used, and how they intend to adapt the approach as more knowledge becomes available.
On a question on which the scientific basis of the Swedish strategy are based in Lies a chance to do just that. Instead, her response was as follows:
”I'm the Minister of Foreign Affairs, I don't know if we have the right the science of herd immunity, or whatever.”
To the L, drag kvinnokortet, in order to avoid having to stand up for what she has said is an almost comical illustration of the problem
these Questions should be addressed to the Swedish statsepidemiolog or she has been, instead, found Lies. Given the fact that she has spent a long period of time to be devoted to explaining the Swedish system of government – in order to show that most of the time, is the regions ' responsibility, she should also know that the government of which he is at making decisions. She reads, does not decision?
In retrospect, Ann, L have tried to do with the criticism of how she handled the "Deutsche Welle" interview, to a question on discrimination based on gender.
”It's possible that it could be a little nicer, smile a little more, and possibly be a little bit more feminine when they think of the answers. It may well be, I think,” said the minister of foreign affairs, to news agency TT.
the purpose of this was to save the image of Sweden to the international criticism of the high death toll and the lack of defense, the minister of foreign affairs and failed dreadfully.
