Talk of the devil… Today’s newspaper tells me that Jesper Christensen has turned down an order of chivalry from the Queen. He says that having a monarchy is “completely out of touch with a modern philosphy of man”. Well said, Jesper!
Of course he’s right. A loud ‘sju jætter?!’ is ringing in my ears when I think about it. A monarchy? In a modern state? How is that possible?
And Jesper Christensen? He’s even more my hero now. I didn’t think that was possible.
