Ok.

The symbol of Erna’s government of the pandemic will forever be how she...

So obviously Breivik hasn't been released from prison yet.

But beware when that happens (cannot last all that long). He has changed his name to Hansen (full name Fjotolf Hansen).

0. Zero homocides first quarter 2021, not just per 100,000, but out of a 6 million population.
