When anti-globalists attack

The sad death of Sweden’s Anna Lindh (which reactionary James Taranto gloats at in a more than slightly unpleasant way) seems to have been, err, inflicted by an anti-Euro campaigner.

Oddly, the particular beef of this murderous crusader seems to be that joining the Euro might be good for business. Maybe s/he should’ve spoken to the British anti-Euro campaigners, who seem to believe otherwise.

More seriously, condolences to Ms Lindh’s family, and let’s hope that this and the murder of Pim Fortuyn don’t represent a greater trend towards assassinations in European politics. Although on the optimistic side, past history tends to indicate that assassinated politicians were usually the ones who were in (albeit not on) the right (think JFK, RFK, MLK, Gandhi).
