Right turn in Sweden.
Posted by Exile on September 17, 2006
It appears that common sense and, perhaps, a little self preservation has crept into Sweden today. The right wing alliance has narrowly won the election. The percentages were as follows: Right wing alliance,47,8, Left wing alliance, 46,3. Which translates into 178 parliamentary seats for the right and 171 for the left.
The old prime minister is retiring gracefully and tomorrow, a new day starts in Sweden with a right wing government that Sweden so desperately needs. The new Swedish PM is Frederik Reinfeldt from the conservative Moderaternas Parti.
Maybe they have learnt something from Denmark after all.
