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?

The main reason why I love that SD got 20 seats is that I feel sympathy for them, after all the shit everyone is throwing at them. And I love that the other blocks now have to deal with them.

I took the party test at svt.se.
Before I took the test, I knew very very little about SD and I didn't expect to like any of their politics. I knew they were controversial and I thought it was for a good reason. But the question in the test did not reveal SD as a racist party and to my big surprise I got this result. The few question I didn't answer was questions on things that are unique to Sweden and I could not answer them. It was a couple questions on health care, taxes and schools.

I'm no racist and if this result is not making sense then we can only blame the questions in the test. But I doubt the makers of the test would let any chance of revealing SD as ugly slip by.

I don't feel I know the Swedish parties enough, and I might not have voted SD after studying the full programs. I probably disagree strongly with SD on some things, but I don't see them as the monsters everybody try to make them into.

But regardless if I like their politics or not, I still love the fact that they got their seats. They can no longer be ignored and treated as trash.

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.

I can't speak for SD, but I guess they fight the mass immigration politics, not the immigrants personally. I don't think they throw eggs on immigrants or otherwise harass them. SD needed police protection in order to carry out their right holding public meetings. Many meetings was aborted or cancelled due to demonstrants. In my opinion, these people are worse than SD.



So you are ashamed eh? Lol I'm also embarrassed over my country, but for different reasons. biggrin.gif
