He'll serve time in England, then they'll re open the case in Sweden and he'll be sent there for trial

Quite possible. He has no leverage, pitting the UK and EU against each other will probably backfire. He's in the worst country he can be in.

Politically orchestrated trap, or justice being served?

So fucked up. A load of teenyboppers, what the fuck.

Apparently - apparently - someone posted about it on twitter a couple of hours before it happened. The isis flag and #manchesterarena, something like that.

Saw some screen grabs going around but their authenticity wasn't clear.

Someone was saying it was probably someone in a different timezone.

This is it. I mean, it's no better if it's the likes of Eagles of Death Metal as it was in Paris obviously, but to choose something which is full of teenagers and probably mostly teenage girls. I don't get this one at all.

What's the bet some scumbag in Grande's label or PR company is thinking, we could really make this work for us.

What's not to get, the aim is to create fear.

Nice, found a permanently twin peaks inspired bar, the black lodge, showing the last two episodes of season 2, followed by the start of season 3 over a couple of evenings. Thankfully they haven't made an event page about it.
