Midwife’s conscience clause case, hard-Brexit Swedish trade, Nordic culture in London

25 min
Should Swedish midwives have the right to refuse to carry out abortions due to their religious beliefs?

This week, we found out that a Swedish midwife is backed in court by an anti-abortion organisation in the United States.

How would a hard Brexit affect trade between Sweden and the United Kingdom? One business owner in Stockholm has seen a positive post-Brexit effect – so far.

Meanwhile, the UK is gazing across the Nordic Sea for comfort, as London celebrates Nordic culture with a year-long festival. Also on this week’s programme, we hear about the rift in the parliament’s centre-right Alliance.
