Former left wing utopia Sweden turns Right Wing

    Is it because the Swedes have just become massive racists randomly in the last few years?

    Or perhaps just as a logical reaction to being at the coalface of the multiculturalism experiment for a decent amount of time?

    Well this will be interesting to watch. The problem people are faced with is voting Right even when they are not due to Government failures and not protecting its citizens. I was amused seeing Liberals on the list as right wing. See either with us or against us.

    Many original thoughts in this thread. Well done to all concerned.

    Italian election law, quite bizarrely, rewards broad alliances and they've exploited that - a reminder of how much more united right-wing politics can be. Italian governments come and go very swiftly but it would be interesting to see a female PM.

    On the OP, Sweden's lurch seems to be more about gang killings.

    The only right-wing entity here, by European standards, are the National Party and the vast majority have never heard of them. We do look to be flirting with the left though, according to opinion polls.

    Sweden haven't elected a right wing government.

    No government has been formed yet.

    It will be fascinating to watch though if they will and can and with whom. The horse trading will be epic. None of it good for stable governance though. .7% in it.

    For the record Sweden has had governments of the right in the not too distant past.

    The right, far right and liberals had a pre election pact, to unite to defeat the incumbents.

    Have they? I read differently this morning.

    There is no formal agreement between the SD and the Moderates, Christian Democrats and Liberals about how they will govern together, although the centre-right parties have said they will not countenance ministerial positions for the far right.

    Have you a link to that?
