One for the Books.

I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed IHGR and its students and staff so full abuzz on a Monday like I did today. Yesterday, a new chapter was written in Swedish history. For some, it’s a dark day of shame that will take years to erase. For others, its a day of great victory.

For the first time, a non-socialistic party was secured power after being re-elected  into a second term in Parliament. Another historic first was the Sweden Democrats gaining 5.7 %  of votes and thus exceeding the 4 % needed to attain seats in Parliament. That’s about 400.000 out of approximately 7 million people that all think SD is a good idea. Exactly how and how much this will change and shape Sweden, only time can tell it seems.

Judging from all the Facebook posts I have to say: I don’t know about you guys, but I’m not leaving. Even if it means vacation courtesy of SD 😉

    I believe that the best way to solve this SD-problem is to meet the people who believe that what they stand for is good. First of all I find it very interesting and I would really want to hear their say, and second of all you might be able to convince them to change their minds. If we’re lucky their time in the parliament won’t last more than the next 4 years.
