My sympathies to the good people of Sweden (a country I once happily lived and worked in for a number of years) for the recent terror attack.
Whilst I appreciate that security and accessibility etc need to be addressed after such incidents, I am somewhat disturbed by the reaction from reputable columnist, Eva Franchell, writing for a large Swedish newspaper, Aftonbladet.
ZeroHedge have provided a summary of what she wrote:
"she calls “effective murder machines” — that Franchell says “must simply be removed from city centres and places where people gather, if people are to be protected in future”.I concur that some action should be taken to reduce the risk in certain areas of similar attacks, eg anti ramming bollards protecting pedestrian only areas. I also am in favour of parts of cities being made pedestrian only, if nothing else it would reduce the noise and pollution and make city centres more pleasant areas to be in.
Vehicles are “easy to steal, and so nothing has been able to stop their advance”.
However, an all out ban simply isn't practical.
Meanwhile Karolina Skog, a Swedish politician who has been Minister for the Environment since 25 May 2016, went overboard:
“Cars are driven largely by men so by giving a lot of space to cars; we’re giving a lot of space to men — at the expense of women,”Yes we need to review security arrangements, but hysterical responses such as this do no one any favours!
