More power to Anders Tegnell !!
All makt åt Anders Tegnell !! !!
My letter to the ft. Needless to say, they didn't publish this. So, haha, I decided to publish it myself:
Vic RolfeTo:email@example.comSat, 16 May at 03:49Hi Roula,With reference to the Editorial Board article: "'Sweden chooses a third way on coronavirus," which was published the 14th of May:I feel compelled to raise a very strong objection to the following statement: (After having read that Sweden has kept large parts of its economy open): "It has conducted a vast experiment - some might say gamble - with it's population."The fact that copycat lock-downs rapidly became the norm, as governments around the world went into full-on panic mode, doesn't make Sweden's more carefully considered and, as it happens, hitherto normal approach, a "vast experiment".As far as I am aware, at no time in history prior to the coronavirus pandemic, has a democratic government ever tried anything like the unprecedented mass experiment of locking down their entire population and trying to slow their own economy to a virtual halt in an attempt to bring a viral outbreak under control?Just in case you should decide to publish my letter, please do feel free to edit as necessary - as long as you maintain the essence of my point.Thank you - and keep up the generally high quality reporting and opinion pieces that I have been accustomed to with the ft over the last 45 years!Best regards,Vic Rolfe(Currently onboard a ship in the UAE after a full two months of quarantine - and I still can't get off!)
