A couple of weeks ago we posted about the Danish lawyer who decided to culturally enrich a hitherto toney and lily-white suburb of Copenhagen. The obstructionist municipal authority in Gentofte blocked his request to build a new house on his property in Hellerup, so Jan Leth Christensen decided to get revenge by renting his existing house to Pakistani immigrants.
Now it seems the Gutmenschen of Hellerup have said: “We’ll see you, and raise you” — they’re ready to bring in the migrants in even larger numbers.
Our Danish correspondent Signe, who translated the article below, includes this introduction:
The drama among the good people of Gentofte has reached Act 2.
Remember how a rich lawyer and homeowner decided to rent out his fancy house to a large Muslim family, because his neighbors sabotaged his building project? Well, it may have been an empty threat. Or much worse.
Please note that the mayor, while doing his very best to keep Gentofte free of migrants, is still a member of the so-called ‘conservative’ party, which since the 1980s has been doing its very best to play the racist card at critics of open borders.
A local media outlet Dit Gentofte writes:
An empty threat?
The municipal scandal of ‘Villa Leth’ continues in the press as expected, now with an extensive article in Berlingske [national broadsheet].
The case from Hellerup’s rich neighbourhood is of epic dimensions, and Berlingske’s reporter paints a picture of a brutal infight between the lawyer and homeowner Jan Leth Christensen, and Mayor Hans Toft. Before Jan Leth Christensen has made good on his threat to rent his house with an ocean view to a Pakistani family, who were supposed to move in on September 17, he now raises the bet:
“I want to help Gentofte Kommune and Mayor Hans Toft provide permanent housing for the 128 refugees that Hans Toft says he cannot accommodate. I plan to buy 30-35 apartments. An apartment in Blidahpark is available for 2.5 million DKK. That I can easily afford,” says Jan Leth Christensen to Berlingske.
“The Pakistanis are welcome. Anyone other than Jan Leth. And it would be great to solve the refugee problem,” says Sigurd Lauritsen, the son of Jan Leth Christensen’s closest neighbors, a couple of retired doctors who used to work around the world for WHO in conflict-ridden zones.
Another of the neighborhood’s homeowners, former Foreign Minister Uffe Ellemann Jensen, earlier expressed a similar attitude to Ekstra Bladet [national tabloid].
