Refugees #2: Prominent Artist Seeks Attention.

News today that an artist will remove exhibits from Denmark in protest to danish governments decision to take non sentimental valuables from refugees. This is how Denmark treats its welfare recipients. Read about it  in the Telegraph here.

Sometimes I think that this is just another excuse to use that Shakespeare line about SOMETHING IS ROTTEN IN THE STATE OF DENMARK. I would like to bring up the point DON”T THROW STONES IF YOU LIVE IN A GLASSHOUSE. Yes Denmark may be wrong but the percentage of refugees in Denmark is still way more than most other rich “western” countries.

So the Swedes can take the piss. This will concern Denmark more than a bit of Artistic sensionalist headline grabbing tantrum.

By the way the artists exhibition in Copenhagen was supurb.

The use of this Lego Block has not in anyway been sanctioned by Lego and represents the artists views and not that of Lego. Said Lego block was purchased at a shop for ordinary consumer prices. Mick at Sausages and Sauce.
