Uncertainty in Sweden ahead of election

buy canada goose jacket cheap Seven million and four hundred thousand voters are eligible canada goose outlet to cast their votes tomorrow in the general and regional elections in Sweden to be held on 9th September. Sweden is one of the most generous welfare Canada Goose Coats On Sale states in the world, giving its citizens universal child care benefits, parental leave when children are sick, free health care benefits and free access to schools and universities. The political party responsible for creating this change in the post Second World War Europe was the Social Democrats. canada goose clearance sale buy canada goose jacket cheap

cheap Canada Goose The Social Democrats have governed Sweden for the greatest part of the last century, but for the first time tomorrow, according to reliable polls, their performance will be dismal compared to what they have achieved in every single election in the last century. They Canada Goose Online might still emerge as the largest party but may not be able to perform as well as in the election in 2014. The coalition of center left parties Canada Goose Outlet has, historically speaking, always dominated the political discourse canada goose and agenda in Sweden. Not any more. cheap Canada Goose

canada goose deals On the other hand, the biggest center right liberal party, Moderaterne, is not doing well, either. Nor may canada goose uk outlet they may be able to muster enough mandates to form a government on their own. Therefore, the last tv debate held yesterday, in which all the leaders of the eight major political parties were invited, had a special round canada goose black friday sale this year. After subjects like hospitals, immigration, integration, economy, etc were discussed, the last round was reserved for questions about the possible scenario of a coalition government. canada goose deals

buy canada goose jacket The race is so close between the two blocks, center left and center canada goose factory sale right, that the undecided voters who will cast their ballot on Sunday might become the game changers. It is also predicted that the far right party, the Swedish Democrats, which is critical of refugees and immigration, will end up becoming the second largest party in Sweden with 20 % of the votes. buy canada goose jacket

canada buy canada goose jacket goose black friday sale Stefan Lfven, the Social Democratic leader and the present Prime Minister, expressed his concern that the Moderaterne, Canada Goose sale who are ready to form a government, might rely on the backing of the Swedish Democrats. Basically, none of the two blocks will emerge convincingly as winners on Monday, according to the polls. So it is the Swedish Democrats, the far right party, which will have the deciding mandates to support a given government. But Sweden is unique in this respect. All the parties on both sides of the spectrum refuse to hold talks with the Swedish Democrats, and do not approve of their racist and discriminatory policies. canada goose Canada Goose Parka black friday sale

The Swedish media is canadian goose jacket very strict about not letting racist and discriminatory comments or generalizations being made about immigrants on tv.

Canada Goose Parka When it comes to the public discourse, there is no other country which is more respectful and simultaneously very strict about the language used buy canada goose jacket cheap when referring to immigrants and newcomers, not only in Europe, but in the entire Western world. The fact remains, though, that immigrants, unfortunately, are four times more likely to be unemployed in Sweden compared to the local people. Denmark, which cheap Canada Goose is also a Scandinavian country, takes pride in being able to seize the bull by the horns and call a spade a spade. The political discourse and debate in Denmark is diametrically opposed to the one in Sweden, yet the number of voters who vote for the far right party in Denmark, Dansk Folkepartt, also constitutes 20 % of the voters.

Canada Goose Outlet So whether you have uk canada goose an open debate as in Denmark, backed by the most restrictive immigration laws, or you have the most liberal immigration laws as in Sweden, the support for the far right parties ends up at canada goose uk shop a constant 20% in both countries.

canada goose store Roughly speaking, every fifth voter is disillusioned, irrespective of the model. At a Florida rally in 2017, the American President, Donald Trump, referred to a hypothetical terrorist attack in Sweden and blamed it on its lenient immigration policies. Some thought he may have read about Sehwan in Pakistan and mistakenly referred to it as Sweden. Populist Danish politicians often refer to Sweden as a lost case and a doomed country, and often adhere to the admonishing style of reference which Trump has popularized. canada goose store

canada goose coats Objectively speaking, the Swedish people are generous in their acceptance of refugees and have taken in more refugees per capita than most other European countries. This has also put pressure on their housing sector, schools and law and order situation. Sometimes Malm in the southern part of the country, the third largest city in Sweden, is referred to as the Chicago of Scandinavia, and the number of rapes committed in Malm is actually higher than in many other Scandinavian cities. Malm also has a huge concentration of immigrants and refugees. Incidentally, statistically speaking, there are more rapes committed here than on an average in India. canada goose store Another highly debated issue is the segregation of immigrant children in schools. Three years ago, SVT, the main Swedish tv channel, published a report which stated that immigrant children who come to Sweden at the age of 12 years or older, have little chance of getting through the higher secondary school. Reviewing nationwide high school figures dating back to 2007, STV found that only a quarter canada goose coats on sale of those who arrived in Sweden at the uk canada goose outlet age of 12 and over managed to finish their studies and were able to apply for college. This is mind boggling, keeping in mind that the majority of immigrant children never take a university education. http://www.canadagoosejacketoutlett.com These frustrated second generation immigrants, unlike the newly arrived immigrants, have started voicing their concern. canada goose coats

Canada Goose sale Canada Goose online The anti immigrant party the Swedish Democrats has proposed that immigrants be sent to separate schools until they acquire fluency in Swedish. Yesterday, their party leader Jimmie kesson said in a debate that children with immigrant background were causing disturbance in the schools, affecting the learning of all pupils. Canada Goose sale

Canada Goose Jackets Therefore, there is canada goose coats a huge debate about introducing Swedish values to new comers. Climate change is an equally pressing issue, but there is a broad consensus about the measures to be taken to tackle the climatic change. Likewise, all parties agree that gender equality, cheap canada goose uk equal pay for equal work, and democracy are core Swedish values, and that they ought to be introduced to newcomers to the country. Canada Goose Jackets

Canada Goose online Sweden has, on the diplomatic level, very good relations with India. Prime minister Narendra Modi visited Sweden this year and met with leaders of other Scandinavian countries in its capital Stockholm. One can only hope that the new coalition government that comes to power will remain engaged in the world affairs and will keep its liberal policies intact and decent. Sweden and India, despite all differences, are both emerging as modern and diverse states with enormous variation in the ethnic and racial backgrounds of their peoples. They are both multicultural societies. Canada Goose online

canada goose Sweden might have to get pragmatic about how many immigrants it wants to allow to enter the country, but in all humbleness, it has to be admitted that the political debate in canada goose uk black friday the country has remained sober and tolerant, and even the far right, anti immigrant party leaders make statements distancing themselves from racist attitudes. canada goose

Turismul aerian, pe avarii

Published

on

În plină pandemie şi criza generată de COVID aeroporturile româneşti se zbat să supravieţuiască. La mare, de exemplu, poţi judeca turismul şi după cursele aeriene. Mihail Kogălniceanu este un aeroport pustiu unde aterizează 3 avioane într-o săptămână. Situaţia este la fel peste tot. Traficul aerian de pasageri s-a prăbuşit de la începutul crizei. În aceste condiţii bulgarii au reuşit să ne ia faţa până  şi la acest capitol. Pe aeroportul din Varna sunt 10 zboruri zilnic iar la Burgas 21.

Avem o mare frumoasă cu plaje de lux, dar şi cu staţiuni încăpătoare. Avem şi un aeroport în Constanţa, pentru ca turiştii să ajungă mai uşor pe litoral. Pentru oricine, asta ar fi reţeta succesului în turism. Doar că în România, este fix pe dos. În cea mai aglomerată lună a anului, August, doar un avion aterizează pe Aeroportul Mihail Kogălniceanu. Este o cursă de la Londra, o dată pe săptămână. Turişti cât să-numeri pe degetele de la o mână.

Şi din păcate situaţia este la fel pe mai toate aeroporturile din România. Criza provocată de pandemia de Covid a dus la disponibilizări în masă, rezilieri de contracte şi zboruri anulate pe bandă rulantă. Puţine au fost situaţiile în care s-au găsit soluţii de moment. Aşa se face că în primele şase luni ale anului numărul de pasageri a scăzut de la 10 milioane la doar 4. Numai în luna iulie scăderea a fost de 75 la sută. Per total anul acesta se aşteaptă la o scădere de aproximativ 60 la sută.

În aceste condiţii ajutoarele financiare oferite de către statul român aeroporturilor şi companiilor aeriene sunt aproape vitale pentru a putea depăşi această criză.

Reprezentanţii companiilor aeriene româneşti susţin că dacă situaţia nu se va înrăutăţi va exista o stabilizare şi atunci  putem vorbi despre o revenire pentru anul viitor. Asociaţia Internaţională de Transport aerian este însă mai pesimistă şi dă ca termen de revenire la nivelul înregistrat înainte de declanşarea crizei, anul 2024.
