Here’s news from the Guardian of encouraging developments in Sweden, the formation of a euroskeptic ‘party’ to fight the upcoming European elections in Sweden. Now, generally speaking, Swedish opposition to further european integration tends to come from the left, not the right (and I suspect that’s the case here), but what is striking about this development is the way that it is a response to the failure of any mainstream party in Sweden to reflect popular concern over the ever more overbearing directorate in Brussels. This isn’t only the case in Sweden, so if Junilistan does well, a helpful precedent could be set.
Are any Swedes out there checking into the Corner (well, I know there’s at least one – Swedish Journalist Guy)? If so, a vote for Junilistan looks like a pretty good idea to me.
