Finland. Migris överdirektör Jaana Vuorio i lång intervju med Newsmakers på Helsingin Sanomats sajt.

Överdirektör (i Sverige generaldirektör) Jaana Vuorio, Migrationsverket – Migri – intervjuas i det här videoklippet från Newsmakers (utlagt på Helsingin Sanomats videokanal) på engelska om asylsituationen i Finland. Större delen av den 18 minuter långa intervjun har nedtecknats med tanke på att man inte vet hur länge videoklipp ligger kvar och det som sägs här kan vara intressant att ta del av också om några år eller ännu längre fram, när länken kanske inte längre fungerar. Det mesta är nedtecknat på engelska men en del är översatt till svenska.

David Mac Dougall: Norway has radically revised their estimate downwards, of the number go people who will come to claim asylum, to a 19 year low. What’s the situation  going to be like in Finland this year and what’s it going to be? How many people did you think would come and what’s the reality?

Jaana Vuorio: Our estimate was 10.000 for the entire year of 2016. It seems that we don’t go that much up so now the estimate is around 6000, 7000 at the most.

David Mac Dougall: Comparing it to last year – we had more than 32.000 last year if I remember correctly.

Jaana Vuorio: Yes, in Finland actually, in the European and Nordic context, our asylum seeker figure has been exceptionally stable. It has varied between 3.000 and 4.000 annually and then, all of a sudden last year, we git nearly ten times more applicants.

Intervjuaren säger att det var uppenbart varför det kom så många asylsökande förra året men undrar:

David Mac Dougall: So why has it dropped off so much this year, what are some of the reasons behind fewer asylum seekers?

Jaana Vuorio: Of course there are many reasons for that but the main reason, compare to last year, are the border controls that have been put in place and also the movement from Turkey to Greece, the numbers have gone down, as we all know.

David Mac Dougall: Do you think ut plays into it that Finland is not granting so many asylum applications; not granting so many asylum requests? Do people realize that its not such an easy country to come to and claim asylum?

Jaana Vuorio: Probably that is one of the reasons,  as well as… actually the asylum criteria remains the same but we used to have a national category of ”humanitarian protection” and that was taken away from the immigration law in May this year.

David Mac Dougall: Who did that affect the most, when it was taken away from the law?

Jaana Vuorio: Actually applicants from countries like Irak, Afghanistan and Somalia. Earlier applicants from those countries, they – or most of them – qualified for the category of ”humanitarian protection”.

David Mac Dougall: We’ve seen some of the worst fighting with ISIS in Irak, so somebody fleeing ISIS wouldn’t automatically get their asylum application approved in Finland anymore?

Jaana Vuorio: Of course we look at the situation all the time as it is at the moment and now we know that the situation in Mosul has really deteriorated so the fact that a person comes from Mosul… if he returns there he would face serious harm for his security. But then of course for Iraqis we have to consider whether the person could return safely to some other part of the country. Läs mer

Stories about and from Sweden, the Humanitarian Superpower

Washington Post Logoskriver den 30 december 2015 i en artikel om Sverige, under rubriken Even Europe’s humanitarian superpower is turning its back on refugees:

The country’s dramatic shift threatens to wreak havoc all the way down Europe’s migrant trail in 2016 by setting off a domino effect in which countries seal their borders for fear that their neighbors will do the same.
——————————–
Instead of a permanent home in Sweden, new arrivals will be eligible only for a temporary stay of between one and three years, with the government vowing to accept no more than the minimum number of refugees required under European Union law. Rules for bringing family members to Sweden will become much tighter.
——————————–
In ever-polite, welcoming and humanitarian-minded Sweden, the new policies have triggered intense soul-searching. Announcing the changes in November, the deputy prime minister choked back tears.

Stories from SwedenUnder tiden 14 juni – 14 september 2014 skrev jag på sajten medium.com 17 artiklar på engelska under samlingsrubriken Stories from Sweden, the Humanitarian Superpower. De texterna visade hur illa ställt det var i Sverige. sedan maj 2005 har jag också bloggat om asyl & migration (och annat), och sedan 2008 har otaliga miggor skrivit hundratals och efter hundratals inlägg som visat hur prekärt läget varit och hur det förvärrats genom åren. Tyvärr måste det i Sverige ofta, på manga områden och så även på asylområdet, gå för långt innan det reageras och ageras, vilket resulterar i ogenomtänkta åtgärder med inte så lite hysterisk anstrykning. För här, i The Humanitarian Superpower, här förmår styrande (politiker) och rapporterande (journalister) inte, som i andra länder, se längre än näsan räcker. Nej, här hanteras livsavgörande frågor på ett sätt som får katastrofala följder för land och folk, liksom lite along the way eller – som man säger i Finland: ex tempore (ung. improviserat, oförberett):

”Finnarna uppskattas här mycket mera än svenskarna även om svenskarna själva tror tvärtom.”

Finlands flagga mörkare blått korsEn finlandssvensk vän som tidigare också bott i Sverige och nu bor i ett annat EU-land, skriver: i ett mejl (som återges med vederbörandes tillstånd)

Det är synd om Sverige, jag följer med fasa vad som händer där. De är så självsäkra, svenskarna. De såsar till allting och tror de är gjorda av teflon. Det hjälper inte att gråta på presskonferenser, någon borde planera och ta ansvar…

Finnarna uppskattas här mycket mera än svenskarna även om svenskarna själva tror tvärtom. En av mina affärskontakter sa till mig att:

Oh, how positive that you are Finnish. No one here can stand these Swedes. We call them Kings of Sweden and every time they invite us there it is just to try to teach us something: how to do to be more like us, more like the Swedes. But who would like to be Swedish and why?

Svenskarna är så uppnosiga och royal i sin egna lilla värld där de dock inte ens har faktakunskaper, att andra nu också börjat märka det. Folk har tidigare gått på det här med svenskarnas ”our contry is the most wonderful place in the world”-grej; nu tycker man bara att de är plain stupid och väntar nyfiket på när Sverige ska klappa ihop. Vilket är synd att det kommer att ske, för när det var som bäst så var Sverige riktigt bra.

Men det är som när någon köper en firma eller det blir en ny generation som tar över: det går att förstöra allt på mycket kort tid men det tar lång tid och kräver kloka beslut att bygga upp verksamheten igen. Det verkar vara det som håller på att hända nu i Sverige.

Samtidigt, om man ser på finnarnas hantering av asylsökande så är det ordning och reda. Därför börjar nu också utnyttjarna lämna landet.

Attityden här är definitivt den att säger man ”I come from Sweden” så reagerar folk lite ljummet med ett ”Ahaa, nice…”. Men säger man sedan att ”but I am originally Finnish” så ljusnar de upp och tycker att det är jättebra.

Inte trodde jag det heller att det kunde vara så illa som det är i Sverige innan jag såg och upplevde det själv. Jag var påverkad av sverigepropagandan. Så på riktigt är det absolut bättre att vara finsk ute i världen.

The Finns have Sisu

In addition to its advanced infrastructure, Finland’s history is one of overcoming adversity from foreign domination, weather, famine, and other adverse conditions. Necessity is the mother of invention, and the Finns have had to be innovative to survive and thrive. Sisu is the word that Finns use to describe their combination of stoic determination, bravery, guts, resilience, perseverance and hardiness to overcome this adversity. It has become part of their national character and culture. It is an important characteristic for competing in a very competitive world.

Justitieministern från Den Humanitära Stormakten näpser premiärministern för lilla, dumma Storbritannien

Lyssna nu, premiärministern i lilla (!) dumma Storbritannien, på vad justitieministern i Den Humanitära Stormakten har att säga om ”ansvar”! Ur artikeln Calais migrant crisis: David Cameron accused of ‘playing politics’ på BBC.s sajt den 2 augusti:

BBC om Morgan Johannsons uttalanden 2.8 2015

Notera att man i BBC:s ext har satt citattecken runt ordet ”responsibility”. Det gör jag också alltid när svenska politiker uttalar ordet ”ansvar”, detta (till intet förpliktande) honnörsord bland svenska naivister inom politik och media.

Morgan JohanssonMorgan Johansson säger myndigt:

I think he’s playing on strings – that he wants to actually divide people – and that’s not a constructive way.

Dessutom: Som om han själv och alla andra i regeringen och riksdagen i Sverige inte också ”are playing politics” i dessa frågor! Falskhet och dumhet, kryddat med naivitet och direkt odiplomatisk och ouppfostrad oförskämdhet, se där ett vinnande koncept från en myra som tror att den är en elefant. Mer ur artikeln på BBC:s sajt:

Sweden allows anyone from Syria into the country, and last year Sweden accepted 30,000 asylum seekers compared to the UK’s 10,000.

Mr Johansson called on the rest of the European Union, including the UK, to take more people in.

”I hear what he [Mr Cameron] is saying about illegal immigrants and about swarms and everything like that,” he said.

Pinsamt. Ytterst pinsamt. Men helt i linje med den naivt megalomana stormaktsretoriken som man från politiskt (och medialt) håll i Sverige länge ägnat sig åt. En retorik som skorrar falsk inte bara i utländska öron utan också i allt fler öron i DHS. Morgan Johansson fortsätter dock att, med en dåres envishet, köra med den hittills totalt icke-framgångsrika stilen att mana övriga EU-länderna, inklusive Storbritannien, att ”ta in mer folk”. Det har Sverige okänsligt kört med sedan något decennium tillbaka, också på Alliansregeringens tid och idag även genom en del EU-parlamentariker från Sverige. Trots att de i EU inte ska gå sitt eget lands ärenden utan företräda hela EU, där den svenska synen på ”ansvar” inte alls är densamma.
