Sweden went to election last Sunday, the result:

The Alliance (Centre-Right) - 49,3 % - 173 seats
The Red Green Coalition (Centre-Green-Left) - 43,6 % - 156 seats
The Sweden Democrats (Nationalist) - 5,7 % - 20 seats

1. The Centre-Right already ruling government won, this is the first time since the right to vote was introduced in Sweden.

2. The Social Democrats that have ruled almost uninterruptedly for nearly a hundred years got their worst result in nearly a hundred years (30.6 %). Social Democracy seems to be on its way down in Sweden, as it's been in the rest of the world.

3. An extremely nationalist party (and also racist), The Sweden Democrats entered the parliament. Once before has a party hostile towards foreigners been in the parliament (1991-94), New Democracy, but SD is more well organized and more outspokenly racist.

4. The Alliance didn't get the majority of the seats which means that there will probably be parliamentary chaos since no one wants to co-operate with the Sweden Democrats. The situation is probable to be very unstable and there won't be any balance.

Any thoughts on this developement?

Norweigan huh? I would have guessed Danish from reading your post.

I don't know why you love that SD got into the parliament if you don't agree with their politics. Most Swedes don't agree at all with them and are therefor we're making a statement, we deteste that way of looking at people and are, unlike in many other nations, taking action against it. In a democracy you have the right to protest, we're not denying SD any rights, we're simply fighting them fair and square.

That never happened, it was talked about by individual congressmen but all parties said no to it.

The difference is that SD are hostile toward immigrants, they're making a wide generalisation and use predjudices and lies which they base their politics on. We're not fighting the people themselves but their politics, which is righteous. Doesn't make everyone who hates SDs politics the same as SD who hate immigrants.

Political correctness is good to some extent, but it shouldn't effect the politics itself. I am a bit ashamed of being a Swede because of SD, that's my only reason.

I'm glad someone finally showed some interest in this at least smile.gif
