    Several members described the change in the Rules of Procedure as a freedom reform, writes TT.

    Today, bar owners risk losing their license to serve if there is spontaneous dancing at the bar counter.

    All parties were in favor of abolishing the permit requirement.

    However, permission will still be required to organize dances in public places such as parks and squares.

  • when a few bombs go off in Russian cities, revolution is afoot. When bombs go off every night in Swedish cities, it’s a bit of gang activity. Give up AB, you are pathetic


    Hello Crypto! We in the newsroom do not interpret what happens based on a feeling or opinion. What we report is based on information from relevant sources. Also don’t know where you find that we call explosions “a bit of gang mischief”? Have a nice day!

  • Gets so annoyed at articles about “hungry children”. A “poor” mother only has 9000 left to live on after the rent. I have SEK 2,000 left when the bills are paid (live in a serviced building where the rent is SEK 11,000). Why are only families with children “poor”?

    kerstin frazen

    Hi Kerstin! It is of course not only families with children who are poor and we have written about other people who have been affected. And also sorry for your tough seat. But children can be considered particularly vulnerable as they themselves cannot take responsibility for their situation, are dependent on adults and cannot be expected to understand their situation in the same way as adults.

  • Probably heard an explosion, I live in Täby, at 01:57, what’s going on?



    It was probably the explosion in a garage in Näsby Park that you heard, you can read about it here.

  • Where can I read about the possible attack on the White House that just happened? Find inger here


    You mean the teenager who drove into a security barrier near the White House last night?

    Here you can read about it.

  • How little should you have to have the least?

    We are two pensioners who have a total of 26,000 per month. With that, we will manage food, rent and everything else in everyday life.

    Saw an AB journalist on TV yesterday who was hoarse about hungry children.

    We then, where should we get food this summer?

    Poor pensioner

    That there are people who cannot afford food on the table in Sweden in 2023 is of course something we must report on and review. Be it children, pensioners or others who are affected.

    Going on and comparing “who has it worst” feels rather irrelevant in the context?
