The Swedish government (namely Environment Minister Karolina Skog) was already worried that more men than women drive, which violates their gender equality objectives. The government also worried that therefore parking spaces constitute a subsidy to men over women. Perhaps you and I think this sounds crazy, but apparently it's received wisdom in the current Swedish government:

As an experiment, we should draft a "human rights white paper" for the Swedish government asking for an exception allowing Muslim males to drive freely, in order to preserve their right to their culture, which makes jihad obligatory:

Any bets as to whether or not Karolina Skog would take the the argument seriously? I think she would.

John Pepple

Yes, I think she would, too. Very clever suggestion, by the way.
