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 😉

That’s what the Itch is going through right now and I am so excited I could self-combust any second. Lets face it: the old printed platform wasn’t working, not for us, and not for you as a reader. We hope that in moving it online will make interaction easier and more assessable. On average, people have about seven different sites they visit regularly. We want the Itch to be one of your seven. It’s going to take time and hard work, but I’m convinced we’ll get there.
