I know there is occasionally talk in New Zealand about “becoming the Sweden of the South Pacific” but this may just have us thinking again. A website under the name ‘The Local – Sweden’s News in English’ headlines ‘No conflict in Iraq,’ says Swedish court.
Apparently Sweden’s Migration Court has turned down calls from a 51-year-old Iraqi man to overturn the Migration Board’s decision to refuse him asylum. The man has not been able to prove that he is particularly vulnerable and in need of protection, according to the court.
I know that I’m harping here, but I fear that John Key would agree. According to John, the war is over – visit www.thewariniraqisnotover.com.
What’s with the world? Interestingly, it’s so peaceful in Iraq that even hardened American troops are so relaxed about the place that they can’t wait to get out. Maybe a judge in Sweden should be sent there to find out how peaceful it really is?
