(Fega ur translates: chicken out)
I absolutely love when people are able to pick up on course of events in real time, tapping in to hot topics and make it work for them. I especially like it when high politics are involved.
Hilarious high politics
”@carlbildt Dear Carl did you remind Putin of your view that he reminds you of an earlier German dictator? Or did you fega ur?”
A few days back, Swedish foreign minister Carl Bildt received this proper smacking on Twitter, from none other than prominent member of the opposing party, Leif Pagrotsky (former Minister for Enterprise and Energy, and Minister of Culture)
I re-tweeted, my friends re-tweeted, everybody re-tweeted, and the RT:s still keeps coming. Apparently, there’s still no answer from Bildt though.
Pissed Putin off
Back in -08, during the war in Georgia, Carl Bildt compared Russian actions to Hitler’s Germany, which, mildly said, pissed Putin off, and authorities refused Bildt to enter the country. Frosty relations to say the least.
Anyways, I guess Leif Pagrotsky just wanted to check if Carl Bildt had the guts to remind Putin of this, or i if he chickend out. To me, his tweet was hilarious, and it got loads of attention in both social and traditional media.
Did you fega ur?
The site even got a link from the first page of Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet’s coverage on the tweet-story. How sweet is that?
So simple, so brilliant.
