Of the 32 seats lost by the right wing parties, 29 went to the neo-nazis, who managed to more than double their vote count from under 6% to nearly 13%, bringing their seats from 20 to 49. The left wing parties have 158 seats, the right wing parties have 142, and the balance is with the neo-nazis. This is possibly the worst result imaginable.
The Sweden Democrats are the right wingers if anyone was having difficulty spotting them. A nice name hiding a horrible regime. This election has basically copied France in that in times of recession and financial tension, tolerance towards minorities and immigration becomes less. Clashes flare up.
The minority government of the Social Democrats should make a majority with coalition partners (sound familiar?) but the issue there is the same as it is in the UK - inaction and betraying promises just gives extra ammo for right wing parties. UKIP are moronic and a worry in the UK but they’re no nazis. That makes it scary. The Sweden Democrats had a candidate stand down after a photo emerged of her wearing a swastika, and racist comments/anti-immigration are common for them. Their clean cut 35 year old leader… well he gives them a fair PR image in a world that struggles to pay attention.
The Moderate Party going isn’t necessarily bad. Sweden just has to make sure it doesn’t allow a desire for change to become something much darker.
