Those pining for the sizzle of Danish coalition politics these wintry Saturdays were rewarded with the return of Borgen last night (Hurra!, as they say over there), only to find that the magnificent Birgitte had – in the two years that have elapsed since we last saw her in February – swapped a life of squabbling over EU pig subsidies for the cool thrill of being helicoptered across a glittering Hong Kong skyline from one lucrative corporate consultancy or Blair-like speaking engagement to another. Could our expensively accoutred heroine – trim, toned and floating in champagne with her new English lover, Jeremy – really be happy?
