thanks muhler!
it is quite intereseting to see how reshuffles work in different countries.
In Italy, for example, the president of the republic greets the new ministers, but no farewell ceremony is scheduled for the old ones... as if no one wants to thank them or they haven't done anything to be tahnked for!

In Germany the minister of defence is thanked with a big tattoo at Bendlerblock. That happens seperately from receiving his dismissal papers.

Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg asked for Smoke on the Water to be played :smile:

Thank you, Marika :flowers:

Curling is, for whatever reason, a serious sport in DK. Not least among women. :brush:
The male chauvinist within me is not surprised at all. The broom has after all been an instrument very much used by women for many many years. Both for cleaning and as a mode of transport...:tongue: :hiding:

(BB is up).

You're welcome Muhler. I like your sense of humor about the broom :flowers:

It's a nice game. I discovered it in 2006 during the winter olympic games in Italy

Muhler 03-18-2011 05:12 PM

Now for something more serious.

In continuation of the procedure we discussed when the new ministers are appointed, I thought it would be an idea to go through the procedure when a law is passed and when a decision is made in the Parliament.

Right now the Parliament is in session to discuss the deployment of Danish forces to Libya. - As all parties are in favour that motion will be agred on within the next two hours. And that means that the fighters will take off Saturday morning.

The Constitution states very cleary that, with the exception of an invasion or an attack on Danish forces, the king (represented by the government) must first obtain a mandate when going to war outside Danish territory.

After having agreed on the basis in the corridors the government make a draft outlining the mandate and detailing the rules of engagement and details of deployment of Danish forces.
The draft go through a motion in the Parliament. Here questions are asked and answered and based on terms from other parties there is an agreement with various conditions, amendments and so on.

Having agreed on that, the final draft go through a second motion where final comments are made, some details are added and so on.
When that motion is passed the military high command is informed and the forces are ordered to deploy. (In this case fighters, perhaps ships later on, but no ground forces. And with a very wide mandate in regards to rules of engagement).
QMII is informed, presumably tomorrow, that Her Majesty's forces are going to war. - QMII is the head of state and the commander in chief and it all happens in her name. (Anyway DK has officially been in a state of war since 2003, after the deployment to Afghanistan).

That was a mandate. The procedure is slightly different when it's about a law.

Here the parties again agree in the corridor.
A draft is presented in the Parliament at a session. - With questions, suggestions, critique and so on.
Based on that the draft is modified and then go through a second session/motion. - Where the draft is again being debated and based on that additional modifications are made.

Then the draft go through the third and final motion. Ending up with a vote. If there is a majority the draft becomes law.

But the law is not vallid until it has been signed by the Monarch/Regent/Rigsforstander.

It can however only be enforced after it has been published in Statstidende. - Because people need to know about a law, before they can follow it, let alone be prosecuted for breaking it.

That, very briefly, are the procedures for passing a law and passing a mandate.

Curling is even an Olympic sport and popular in many countries, not only the nordic ones. Switzerland or UK are doing very well, so are the US or Canada. Its very popular to watch, I got really into it many years ago when I had to stay at home because of illness during Winter Olympics.

And Muhler, the Danish men arent too bad when looking at the world rankings - seems there has been some male emancipation going on over the years ;)

Curling would be a pure male sport, if it was allowed to use motorised sweepers to move those round thingies around. :cool:

Hi Muhler, love the little smilie with the broom. Haven't seen that one before. I don't believe curling is played in the southern hemisphere, but I do like watching the sport at the winter olympics. Sort of like our lawn bowls played on grass. That is very popular here in Australia mostly among the older generation, but now a lot of younger ones are finding the sport now. Thanks also for the constitutional explanations. Hope one and all stay safe in whatever war like activity against Libyia. Very sad to see all this unrest in Arab countries becoming so violent.

You are welcome. :smile:

It it petanque? We have a local club of, - ahem - mature, petanque players around here. They are pretty fanatic. :tongue:
Well, it keeps them off the streets I guess.
They even have jackets with club markings on the back. They do resemble senior bikers when they come walking in groups, :cool::cool::cool: come to think of it. A bit like Hell's Grannies from Monty Python. :lol:

Thank you Marika!!

I went looking for these pics earlier today, but had no luck.

I curled Varsity in High School and then took part in a Blind/Visually Impaired program close to twenty years ago when it was just getting started in our area. Now Blind/Visually Impaired Curling is very close to Paralympic inclusion. They were hoping to get in for Vancouver, but it didn't happen. Hopefully come Sochi it will be.

Anyway...For those who think it's an easy sport, two things.

1 ~ You will discover brand new muscles and tendons in your arms and shoulders you never dreamed existed before you tried sweeping a curling rock down that sheet of ice. I was sore for the better part of three weeks after my first time.

2 ~ Never ever, ever, ever slip, and while you're falling, end up smacking your ankle against the side of a curling rock. I still all these years later have no idea how I didn't break my ankle. It sure turned all kinds of interesting colours though. :whistling:

My Canadian Ladies play Denmark today. May the best team win!!

Thanks again for the link Marika!! :flowers:

Kronprinsen: Glæder mig til at afsløre navnene - Royale - BT.dk

Frederik went to a movie premiere Saturday evening at Imperial cinema in Copenhagen.
Here he and who's who of Copenhagen went to see the movie Juan by Kasper Holten.

Frederik said: "I'm looking forward to revealing the names of the twins for everyone".
Jokingly pretending not to have expected a question about how the twins are doing he replied: "They are fine and at home".
