Politicians seem to be the same no matter where in the world. In Sweden Maud Olofsson is one of the typical representatives of her kind and our “favorite politician”.
She speaks a lot and says nothing. In principle, you do not have to read on and we could have saved this article.
But good, on the subject of Saab Olofsson has given a press conference. The tenor of the statement was that Saab should first solve the problems with real estate sales and then, yes, then the government would make its contribution. Likewise the entrance of Antonov.
A clear position on this point? None. Says the EIB yes, says GM yes, then says the Swedish state yes. So it went on the whole explanation.
Olofsson has great respect for the efforts of Victor Muller, who has invested a lot of time and effort to solve the financial problems. In the Swedish original that sounded a little like a poisoned praise. The Saab staff, there Mrs. Olofsson feels deep compassion. Now a day before Midsommar and without any warning without wages with an uncertain future.
On the subject of Pang Da Olofsson said that she welcomes the commitment of the Chinese.
In principle a meaningless explanation and without any perspective. The government would like to get rid of the "Saab problem" because the current problems in Västragötland do not fit into the image of a neoliberal Sweden in an economic boom. Manufacturing is a thing of the past for the current government, finance industry and services are right at the fore.
Why do we still write about it? To make one thing clear. The Swedish government will not support Saab. That would be a miracle.
