I just read how a Finish millionaire driving 15km over speed limit was issued a speeding ticket for$60.000.
What a country! No wonder Finland and all Scandinavian countries are considered THE BEST countries to live and work in the world. Of course, the offending millionaire who made a whopping $ 7M. last year, was complaining how it is not fair to rich people in his country to have to pay so much extra when caught violating the laws.
He also said it was hard for elite to live in such a country and many have left as result. Well this is what we say to himm and any other complaining rich elite person; Yes you should pay so much so you feel the "pain" of fine you deserve, just like a person making 100 times less, who too feels the pain of fine of $10, for instance. That is the way it should be all over the world. Especially in countries like USA and Canada where their elite has become so rich and powerful that they not only avoid paying taxes (hide their ill-gotten money in tax-heavens) but avoid any fines or consequences of their bad, even disgusting behavior. Your elitist did not complain about the woderful country that lets him make all those millions, without the nastiness we see in USA and Canada. If he and his kind want to leave, let them. Where are they going? To America or Canada, go if you are crazy enough to leave such cultured and wonderfully just and fair country. Or even worse, go to some of those Asian countries like Kazacstan etc. In fact anyone who wants ot go I am sure your govt and people would just say; go and never come back, for you don't need them at all. Other would take their place and keep your wonderful country wonderful. The worse you can do start Americanizing your country. That will be the end of your culture and way of life. You get the idea, so keep the America out, stay neutral and give example to the world how a good country can be had, without Americanization that leads to destruction of any country that imports it or has it exported to them at the point of a USA's gun.
The future of the world would be far better and perhaps the only way we could have a future, if all countries followed your country's model, including America and Canada. If they don't,they will turn into what America and Canada are today and will be in the future. Yuk.

Dear Sir,I

We live in societies of laws, standards and facts (proven facts).

Again, I would like to inform you that Mrs Radia from Algeria happened to fail 2 years of pharmacy at the University of Geneva by receiving failed grades for the relevant subjects.

Her grades are well-recorded within that institution.

Therefore, she would be lying due to prejudice if she says or writes that others have the same problem when they never took any exam in the relevant subject at that university or never attended it.
