Lets Talk About Sweden

I find it quiet strange that we never talk about what is happening in Sweden, Its almost as if its a taboo conversation yet its only 1,409 kilometere away from the UK you would think its on the other side of the world. So when Boris panicked and put the whole of UK under house arrest or lockdown Sweden carried on leaving bars, restaurants and schools open, they allowed gatherings of up to 50 people and easter time they opened ski resorts and up to date their death rate has remained normal as a average. They trusted their people to be sensible and nine months down the road it looks to be the correct choise, Recently released figures showed their economy has not taken such a hit as the UK has in fact UK is second bottom of the list with Lithiuana at the top and Iceland second followed by Sweden third on the list.
