Dunno, but would you be happy living here if you were paying about £17 for a pint of beer in a pub?Is that a different Sweden to this one?

An absolute scandal that Merrie Olde England can only scrape in a 15th. Obviously a "fake poll" - where's dear old Uncle Don when you need him to rattle a few cages at US News?
That was my experience over there at the time and it was the source of much malaise. It wouldn't bother you so much there if you were super rich, but because of the lack of inequality, there weren't many that were.
The other massive bugbear for everyone there was not being able to buy alcohol from a shop between the hours of 5pm Friday through to 9am Monday. Were that to be enforced here there'd be riots.
I always laugh at these polls where Scandy countries usually come out on top. Give me Blighty and all its problems any day of the week.
