Två repliker av Sara Skyttedal, KD, i SVT:s Debatt alldeles nyss:

"Du vet att det inte är någon som förespråkar en förändring av svensk abortpolitik!" -- Jo, Sara Skyttedal, du förespråkar ju att vårdpersonal ska kunna vägra vård, vilket de hittills inte kan. På vilket vis är detta inte en förändring?

"Det är ingen som säger att vi inte ska ha fri abort!" -- Nej, det är väl det som är problemet: Ni SÄGER det inte, men förändringen ni förespråkar gör ju aborträtten i praktiken betydligt mindre fri. Hur definierar du "lögn", Sara Skyttedal?

What the heck was she on about, the woman who displayed a map of the world with big capital-G:s on it on the YLE TV news: "Guggenheim has also had a couple of temporary museums, in Las Vegas and Berlin..."

Wha? Seems somebody -- YLE, or Guggenheim? -- is trying to create an impression that they were meant to be temporary, like in that modern "pop-up" style thing. But nobody called them that while they were operating! They were museums just like the others -- i.e, out of five Guggenheims world-wide, two just simply went bust!

For those who wonder what I'm on about: These two museums were AFAIK never marketed as "Temporary Guggenheim" or "Pop-up museum, only this week, hurry up and go there before we close it down on Monday!" Never alluded to as transient in any way, until after they turned out to be. And, hey, twelve years -- or was it fifteen? Something like that, anyway, in the case of Berlin -- isn't really all that fleeting. Kind of hard to even make out you intended it as a pop-up thingy, given that time scale...

So why try to make it out as such afterwards, is my point. A: To make it seem as if a(n intended-as-)permanent Guggenheim museum is something totally different than these (post-hoc-declared) "temporary" ones, and so of course could never go bust.

Guess which Nordic capital city they're currently trying to get to finance a new building for them, grant them land and so on...?

Mitä ihmettä tuo isoilla G-kirjaimilla varustettu maailmankartta esittelevä nainen höpisi YLE:n TV-uutisissa: "Guggenheimilla on ollut myös pari väliaikaisia museoita, Las Vegasissa ja Berliinissä..."

Häh? Tässä nyt joku -- YLE, tai Guggenheim? -- haluaa ilmeisesti antaa vaikutelman että ne olivat tarkoitettu "väliaikaiseksi", vähän modernin "pop up"-tyyliin. Mutta eihän niin koskaan sanottu silloin kun toimivat! Ne olivat museoita niin kuin muutkin -- eli viidestä Guuggeleistä kaksi menivät nuriin!

Vad sjutton gaggade hon om, den där kvinnan som visade upp en världskarta med stora G:n på i YLEs TV-nyheter: "Guggenheim har också haft ett par temporära muséer, i Las Vegas och Berlin..."

Va? Här försöker visst någon -- YLE, eller Guggenheim? -- ge intryck av att de var avsedda att bli tillfälliga, typ lite så där tjusigt "pop up" som är så inne numera. Men så var det ingen som kallade dem när de var igång! De var muséer precis som de andra -- dvs av fem Guggisar har två gått i konken!
