Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
First of all, they would not have the required 175 votes. Secondly, former PM Reinfeldt has been very, very anti-SD.

I think we're going to see a civil war in the Moderates - after all, the immigration policy pushed by SD is not very different to the one the Moderates supported before Reinfeldt came along.

I fail to see how Sweden is ever going to be able to have a right-wing government again if the right doesn't cooperate in some way with the rightwing populists, like in Denmark. Or if someone co-opts their policies.

The Swedish voters have rebelled against the sonderweg of having ten times as high asylum immigration from the third world as in other comparable countries. If the political system doesn't respond to these concerns in some way, I fear the Sweden democrats might top 20% in the next election.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
