    Denmark's efforts to force integration of immigrants

    Denmark, as with the other Nordics, is a highly co-operative society

    It seems they are shocked by the insular nature of indigent immigrants

    I am ambivalent about their current & proposed response

    Starting at the age of 1, “ghetto children” must be separated from their families for at least 25 hours a week, not including nap time, for mandatory instruction in “Danish values,” including the traditions of Christmas and Easter, and Danish language. Noncompliance could result in a stoppage of welfare payments. Other Danish citizens are free to choose whether to enroll children in preschool up to the age of six.
    ...
    Some are punitive: One measure under consideration would allow courts to double the punishment for certain crimes if they are committed in one of the 25 neighborhoods classified as ghettos, based on residents’ income, employment status, education levels, number of criminal convictions and “non-Western background.”
    ...
    Nearly 87 percent of Denmark’s 5.7 million people are of Danish descent, with immigrants and their descendants accounting for the rest. Two-thirds of the immigrants, around half a million, are from Muslim backgrounds, a group that swelled with the waves of Afghan, Iraqi and Syrian refugees crossing Europe.
    If the proposals dropped the religious tinge, then I think they have some merit

    Denmark is offering an opportunity to these immigrants/refugees , and some tough love to make them take it, seems fair

    The Swedes could learn from the Danes but alas methinks the horse has bolted. Staunch feminism has been the ruination of Sweden.

    We are about 10 years behind where Denmark is now. 10 or 15 years ago, they had approximately 50,000 muslims and that number has swelled enormously to over 300,000.

    There has been the consequent emergence of ghettoes and crime gangs which bedevil an otherwise idyllic country.

    10 years ago people would dismiss the idea of tolerant Denmark introducing draconian measures to crack down on immigration but it has happened.

    The Danes are simply fed up of it. If you want to see our future look at Denmark or Sweden.

    Same should be applied to the largest immigrant community in Ireland - the unionists on both sides of the border.

    They will have to learn to cradle mugs, while gazing sombrely at the fog-filled dykes where a body is lying undetected.

    I must rewatch "The Killing" - the jumpers were wonderful.

    There's a whole other type of unionist in Ireland now, and they pose a far greater threat to Ireland than loyalist unionists ever did. The European unionist.

    Really? What benefits has English occupation (and support for it) brought to Ireland?

    It's more to do with how other countries are dealing with a challenge we will face soon .
