The doctor is feeling a little queasy

One can only hope that it leads to something like yesterday's conservative victory in the election in Denmark (Socialist leader resigns after election loss).

Göran Persson is not commenting on the storm about his honorary doctorate - but he is proud of it.

... Just as the title indicates I felt very honored - and still feel very honored, said the Prime Minister...

... It is not a decision he himself has made, rather the faculty at Örebro university ...

... There is no reason at all to question the decision which others have made and which I myself cannot affect, said a clearly irritated Göran Persson who walked away.

Is Prime Minister Persson guilty of bribery after being awarded an honorary doctorate from Örebro university? The question is to be considered by the "national criminal corruption unit" after a complaint from the "Institute against bribery"...

... It is seldom that there is such a clear connection [between perks and services], says Thorsten Cars [from the "Institute against bribery"] ...
