Not as encouraging as it looks

In über-liberal Sweden, a social democrat politician has opined that trafficked illegal immigrants should in future be deported whence they came rather than being patted on the head and given social housing and benefits.

Has the worm finally turned? No such luck. Göran Johansson's justification for this radically unliberal view is pricelessly, stereotypically Swedish. For people to pay a typical 100,000 kronor to be smuggled into Sweden, he reasons, is unfair on those potential immigrants who can't afford the traffickers' fee.

Allah give me strength!
