  • Has the airport at Palma reopened?


    Yes exactly. It was closed for a while but is now open again. Read more here.

  • Thank you for the eminent Valkompisen! A very good complement. Great with such quick responses. Hope to see him again in other contexts in the future! 😀


    Thank you for testing Valkompisen! It is not at all impossible that he will receive new information in the future. Until then, you can keep asking questions about what’s happening with the EU now, here!

  • Can’t you be a little more specific when you say that something has happened in, for example, southern Stockholm Stockholm, be more specific about the location, you don’t understand where it is southern Stockholm Stockholm you are talking about, which area. You need to be more clear when you write.


    Hey Maya! Sometimes we can’t actually print the exact location and it depends on several different things. For example, if a person has been found dead but relatives have not been helped, then we do not want to risk issuing a death notice by writing in too much detail.

  • A question about the nursing strike related to your article about heavily pregnant Victorija. For me, childbirth and maternity care in particular feel like extremely socially important professions. From what I understand, there are at least two things in the right to strike that should prevent such departments from going on strike? Region Skåne declares that women and children can die. Why haven’t they submitted the question to the committee that decides whether it is socially critical then? I can understand postponing planned procedures, but a woman can’t squeeze until the strike is over?!



    Region Skåne considers the strike to be socially dangerous industrial action. They have therefore requested that the Vårdförbundet withdraw the strike notice.

  • Now you spoiled Gift at first sight again. Oh my God! The program won’t be broadcast until tonight, so you can probably refrain from writing anything until then.

    You have never spoiled before, now two weeks in a row, why are you doing this?


    Hi Per, sorry if you feel like things are revealed before you’ve seen the latest episode! We always try to give a spoiler warning if we release information that not everyone has yet heard on shows like Married at First Sight.

    But we also write for those who want the latest news, so we can release spoilers sometimes.
