Fierce criticism of Mette Frederiksen and the government – it is cynical

"I don't actually go into a discussion of."

How it sounded dismissive of prime minister Mette Frederiksen (S), when she got a question, that had the suggestion of a critical nature during a visit to 'the Studio' on DR1 earlier in the year.

if you Ask the Left and the two political commentators, it is an excellent picture of a cynical and magtfuldkommen trend.

From both Berlingske tidende and Ekstra Bladet have in recent times raised on the level of executives, to Mette Frederiksen and her ministers are increasingly shies away, when the journalists will ask the critical questions.

Often pulls the answer out, and in the other case ends the answer – after several days – to be in writing, so there can be follow-up critical issues.

For the two political commentators are there to talk about a soleklar tactics from Mette Frederiksen, and the rest of the socialist government.

"There is talk about a major slide in relation to the freedom of the press," says Lars Trier Mogensen.

"It is clear to everyone that emails used far more than in the past, so there can be no critical issues. It works as a standard procedure. As if it is coordinated," says the Sea Marie Serup.

In connection with the making of this article B. T. contacted the prime minister's office to get an interview with Mette Frederiksen about why she and the government ministers do not make up for the critical interview.

It wants Mette Frederiksen't have to put up to.

"It is proof of the magtfuldkommenhed, there have come in the Holocaust. Of course you can't make up for everything, but it does systematically, that the ministers are not standing up to critical interview," says political rapporteur Sophie Løhde (V).

Also the Liberal party president, Jakob Ellemann-Jensen, has taken part in the debate and attacked Mette Frederiksen in the area – both from the pulpit and on social media.

B. T. wanted to interview Jakob Ellemann-Jensen to this article, but was instead referred to the Sophie Løhde.

The latest piece of time, it has been described in several media, how a series of persons in the civil service has a history in the Party or have direct contacts with the ministers they work for.

It has met some criticism, since the idea is that a ministry's civil servants must be politically independent.

And it is also on the radar of the Left – not least, when coupled to the lack of response from ministers.

"It is a democratic problem, when the civil service democracy, as it clearly is the case here. And when they systematically do not want to put up to to other interview than those that take place in the soft sofas, then we have a problem," says Sophie Løhde.

Both Lars Trier Mogensen and Sea Marie Serup has happened before the governments that employ their own and giving way to critical questions, but never to the extent that the socialist government is practicing the.

"It's seen in the past for ministers to employ people in the civil service, that fits in with the political position," said the Sea Marie Serup, and continues:

"But just like with the lack of interview, so it is not seen in this magnitude in the past."
