Apologies for the lack of updates. The thing is that the Swedish election campaign seems to be moving ahead at the expected pace with the economy, jobs and social services as the main issues. Immigration and integration below the radar.
The talking points I would make for an improvised discussion would go along the lines:
1. The major story to me is the collapse of support for the Social Democrats. Soc Dem getting around 30 percent and being the second largest party in some polls is like recording pigs flying all over the place and flying saucers landing in Times Square. and yet, Swedish media appear curiously unsurprised.
2. How is the relatively strong performance of the Sweden Democrats linked with the weak performance of the Social Democrats?
3. If SweDem pass the 4 percent threshold and there is no overall control in the Riksdag, I would expect Fredrik Reinfeldt to form a minority Alliance government but just like Poul Nyrup Rasmussen in the 1990s to go for agreements with either the Green Party or the Social Democrats.
