This afternoon

Following this, JYSK has its sights set on opening stores in Sligo, Carlow and Dublin, plus two stores in Cork city, during summer 2020. JYSK will create more than 70 full-time jobs with the opening of these new stores…

Behold: the Holmsland Dune House, designed by Studio Viktor Sørless: perched on an isolated stretch of the Danish coast: an elevated, formed concrete cruciform, each wing of which points in one of the four cardinal directions.

Inspired by the 2010 Roman Polanski film ‘The Ghost Writer’, the combined effect of the changing light and the building’s extensive glazing is designed to create cinematic panoramas of the windswept coast as requested by the owner, an “absolute cineaste”.

Fair play, i retfærdighed.

Inside the Danish parliament Christianborg Palace in Copenhagen, Denmark

Luke Harding, in The Guardian, reports:

Denmark has become the first country in the world to apparently buy data from the Panama Papers leak, and now plans to investigate whether 500-600 Danes who feature in the offshore archive may have evaded tax.

Denmark’s tax minister, Karsten Lauritzen, said he will pay up to DKK9m (£1m) for the information, which comes from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca. He said an anonymous source approached the Danish government over the summer.

The source sent over an initial sample of documents and the government reviewed them. After concluding they were genuine, it secretly negotiated support for the controversial deal from political parties in parliament, the minister said.

Everything suggests that it is useful information. We owe it to all Danish taxpayers who faithfully pay their taxes,” Lauritzen said, admitting that he had originally been “very wary”.

He added: “The material contains relevant and valid information about several hundred Danish taxpayers.”

There you go now.

Just some of the photos the girls took of Danish General Election posters. It should be noted that all the candidates are ridiculously good looking and young, not one TD type between them…

An expat in trouble…

Sheila Larkin  writes:

These are my good friends Dorte and her husband Dom Kelly. I first met Dorte in 1999 when she lived and worked here in Dublin. She was one of the nicest people working in HMV on Henry Street. She met her future husband Dom, who originates from Tallaght. They moved to Dorte’s home country of Denmark in 2003 and they got married in 2004.They have since had the wonderful Luke (aged 3) and twins Jake & Josh (aged 18 months).
Recently Dorte had invasive surgery to remove 3/4 of one lung to save her from lung cancer.They then lost their house to a very serious and dangerous mould, which their home insurance wont cover. Their luck has been horrendous. For them and their three boys, two of whom have their own health problems.
They are stuck, they are running out of money to pay the rent for their new accommodation. They need to either fix their current house, which is now worthless due to the mould but still paying a mortgage on. Or find a new house to buy. Both options need money they don’t have.
Dorte’s work colleague have set up this fundraiser to help.
Their full story can be found here (see fundraiser link). Trust me when I say you won’t me nicer people than the Kelly’s of Vrå. And I want to help them. I hope you can too. Even if it’s just a Euro, I know Dorte and Dom would be forever grateful.
