I forgot to mention that this evening, Göran Persson will descend from the Prime Ministerial Olympus to face his challenger Fredrik Reinfeldt in a debate on Swedish TV4.
Over on SvT’s Channel 1,
Mona Sahlin Per Nuder Mona Sahlin will battle Maud Olofsson of the Centre Party. The thing about that debate is that it will be conducted in English.
Most of today’s debate has concentrated not on policies but on the fall-out of the Liberal Party’s intrusion into the Social Democratic intranet. Will the Liberal leader, Lars Leijonborg, be damaged goods at the end of the campaign? We shall see, but the fact remains that he either knew about the intrusion at an early stage (which is bad) or handled the situation in a bad way (which is of cause also bad).
