I´d like to comment on the way the Swedish systembolaget ridicule themselves by selling to the people the very thing they claim to protect people from.
They also have a monopoly which is illegal and creates unfair competition within the EU. I am very much so, not alone in my opinion.
Furthermore, I´d like to see the Swedish government in collaboration with Systembolaget, stop playing around and duly accept the rules laid down on entering EU. Abide by the rules or get out. Stop making fools of yourselves. Thank you.
There is another environmental aspect to this case, which is to my knowledge undiscussed until now, and that is the intense smell of exhaust fumes from traffic swarming around many systembolag on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings.
This extra carbon monoxide addition to our already polluted atmosphere would be eliminated by the selling of booze in local shops
