The Folketing kept in the dark
Today’s overview continues in the corona track – with the government handling the shutdown and corona pandemic.
Despite the government’s repeated reports of openness and promises of close political cooperation, the Folketing’s special corona follow – up group has been kept in the dark when it comes to the serious problems in infection detection.
The follow-up group has not been informed that the infection detection did not have the necessary capacity to keep up with the winter’s increasing infection rates. It tells several of the follow-up group members after the infection detection in December turned out to be severely understaffed. »The alarm bells rang and rattled. And it should have been said clearly and distinctly, “says health spokesman Martin Geertsen (V).

Will close every third parking space
From Christiansborg, we go to the municipal election campaign and the battle over who will be mayor of Copenhagen from next year. The Social Democrats’ leading candidate for the post Sophie Hæstorp Andersen plays out with a proposal called “really violent” by Professor Mogens Fosgerau from the University of Copenhagen. The party will close down a third of all parking spaces at the roadside – the so-called street parking spaces – in the City of Copenhagen until 2025.
The aim is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and limit harmful particles as well as reduce congestion.

Ellemann and Støjberg have disappointed
Herning’s outgoing mayor Lars Krarup is disappointed with party chairman Jakob Ellemann-Jensen and deputy chairman Inger Støjberg. In an interview before the party’s extraordinary national meeting today, Krarup, who is a central figure in the Liberal Party’s hinterland, says about the two:
“I think they bear an equal responsibility for what has gone wrong. They did the only thing that the hinterland had asked them not to do. Namely, to make more trouble. “
The criticism falls in an interview with Avisen Danmark, where Krarup also warns against stoning everyone in the Liberal Party who does not “have petty radical tendencies.”

Replaced by a Loop Hunter
Sunday’s major political event is precisely the Liberal Party’s extraordinary national meeting, where the party will elect a new deputy chairman. Everyone is waiting anxiously for what the dethroned deputy chairman Inger Støjberg will say in the speech, which she keeps secret from the party’s leadership and everyone else.
On the other hand, there is no excitement about who will succeed Støjberg. Stephanie Lose will be chair of the Regional Council of the Region of Southern Denmark. Berlingske draws a portrait of her. She had a central role when the Liberal Party parted ways with party chairman Lars Løkke Rasmussen. And to a degree, she saw on the front page of Ekstra Bladet was called “Løkke-jæger”. The 38-year-old left-wing woman has been compared to one of the characters in the series ‘Beverly Hills 90210’. And when Avisen Danmark asked her why she attacked the party chairman, she replied that she was just “doing her job.”

Corona does not exist
Finally, we must finally return to the reactions to the government’s handling of coronavirus. On Saturday night, there were again demonstrations and unrest in the street organized by a group calling itself “Men in Black”. Among other things, it attracted attention that a Mette Frederiksen doll with the text “She must and must be killed” was burned off.
Opposition to shutdowns has become more and more visible. Where before there were few people with pots and pans making noise in front of Christiansborg, a new group has appeared. Wearing black clothes, they throw cannon shots and emergency flares, shouting at the police and calling the prime minister ‘satan’. Some do not believe that coronavirus exists, while others are convinced that it is just a ‘common flu’.
