Where are Danish Political Blogs in English?

Both in Norway and in Sweden, you can find a small selection, or at least a handful, of decent political blogs writing in English. Strangely enough, I haven't found too many from Denmark. Enough! is the only one I know of. I find this a bit odd, since Danes have many excellent blogs in Danish. It is also sad, given the fact that tiny Denmark is probably the one Western nation with the most open and mainstream debate about issues related to Islam and Muslim immigration. Now that the Copenhagen Post has decided to close its archives to non-paying visitors, it makes it more difficult for non-Scandinavians to follow the developments there. I know that translating articles to English takes time, but what about some collaboration? Can for instance Uriasposten, Filtrat, En dansker i Sverige, Angantyr and Polemiken cooperate on a blog about Danish politics in English? Something similar to Stockhom Spectator from Sweden? It doesn't have to be updated every day. Even a couple of times a week would be valuable. If you have a small team of writers, this should limit the workload to a few posts a month. What do Danish readers here think about the idea?

Fjordman, just some food for thought:
maybe is Danish "journalistic" isolacy the reason that the Denmark is not plagued by PC warriors (who are usually from any "Anglo/Saxon" country or university).

Maybe this is why their politicians have a chance to do somehing good for their people and they aren't swamped by professional "do gooders" and legions of Love & Tolerance.

Fjordman,

BTW are you aware of this Danish news source:

news.denmark.dk

?

Moreover if you are seeking information from various countries I could recommend you this extremely useful page :

Not at bad idea, Fjordman. However, I do doubt how big the target audience of an English speaking Danish political blog really is. We are in the happy circumstance that our fellow Scandinavian neighbors are fairly well able to read eachothers languages. Nevertheless, Danish political blogs in English is a good idea and I'm sure more will come.

Regards,
Jakob

Jakob: Norway is a smaller country, and we already have several political blogs, ranging from Bjørn Stærk to Oslo Girl. If we can, why can't you?

Besides: Yes, Denmark is interesting precisely because you have the strongest popular resistance to the pro-Islamic multicultural nonsense that is haunting the rest of Europe, too.
