I blame the U.S

I heard a report today that they , seriously, got Norway and Denmark confused. Denmark was in the coalition. It looks like insane terrorists are just as stupid as your run of the mill American school kid.

They’re not even a real country anyway.[/quote]

We’re actually a Pleasure Dome.

LOL, that’s too funny.

Bah, I still think it’s because of the Snow Devils. You can’t trust those shifty, devil-worshipping Norwegians anyway, good riddance I say.

Hopefully the terrorists will get around to Denmark too eventually. If red hot dogs aint an affront to Islam I don’t know what is.

I thought that was just Montreal.

I heard that that theory was quickly dismissed because the guy who was on the tape lived in Denmark for a time and is unlikely to be confused about it.

Not really surprised, but this morning it certainly struck me as a wacky terror mix up. Those darn Muslims with their crazy cartography.

Crazy. What if tomorrow they decide that Iceland has got to go?

Yeah, that’s what they’re saying. Now they think they’ve got a target picked out before they made the speech. Time will tell, I suppose, if the Snow Devils don’t.

And Pres. Bush is a geography expert?

That’s right! Now if you would just send a map with your country circled in red to the White House, we’ll bomb the fuck out of you.

Bring it on.

Bastar…AGH THE LIGHT!!! MY EYES!!! MY SKIN IS BURNING!!

You’ll pay for this Thorvaldsen!!!

I just watched the EMU-debate on Swedish television, and I suddenly understood that you have no real populist party in Swedish politics.

I really hate you right now.

I missed it, can you summarize it for me?
We had a populist party between 91 and 94, Ny Demokrati.
Never trust anything “New”.

Nevermind, they have the entire broadcast on their homepage.

Yeah, but it’s not in parliament or anything, or even a political force in any way, shape or form.

Got a link to any recent opinion polls for the political parties? what’s “opinion poll” in swedish, anyway?

Of course not, what do you think we are, Norwegian? ;D
No, they survived for about three years never to be seen again.

Here is the latest of TEMO’s Väljarbarometrar, from May:

Since no major political party is currently truly a populist party, they’re included in “Övriga”, combined with fringe socialist and communist parties, right wing parties and parties for the elderly.

m (Bo Lundgren) is Moderaterna, the Moderate Conservative Party, which is the “rich man’s party”, rather liberal Economic Agenda, against government welfare. As right as you’ll get in the Swedish parliament. Historically the second largest party.

fp (Lars Leijonborg) is Folkpartiet, The Liberal Party of Sweden. It is one of the oldest parties, but has rarely been in a very powerful position. They are more socially “caring” than Moderaterna, and as such a popular party to turn to if you don’t trust Socialdemokraterna or Vänsterpartiet’s economical model. They want to change the economic system to make it more open for innovation while being very liberal in personal issues, like homosexual adoption and the like.

c (Maud Olofsson) is Centern, The Center Party, the former Farmer’s Union/Party. Cares about the countryside, otherwise typical right bloc party, doesn’t make much noise, usually.

kd (Alf Svensson) is Kristdemokraterna, the Christian Democratic Party, the true conservatives in personal issues, while being “caring conservatives” in social issues. One of the newest parties who got an upswing largely because of their popular leader.

These four parties generally work together in the right bloc due to coinciding economic policies. They held power 91-94 together with the Populist Ny Demokrati, led by Moderaterna and 76-82 under Centern.

s (Göran Persson) is Socialdemokraterna, The Social Democratic Party, which historically has always been and still is the largest party. The worker’s party, though recently they’ve moved to the right economically and privatised government business.

v (Ulla Hoffman) is Vänsterpartiet, the Left Party, who until the beginning of the nineties were the Left Party Communists. As far left in parliament you’ll get, though some claim they’ve just moved to the old position of s. Had one of the most popular leaders in Gudrun Schyman who championed a feminist cause but she was forced to leave after suspicions arose about cheating on her taxes.

mp (Maria Wetterstrand and Peter Eriksson) is Miljöpartiet, The Green Party. A lot like v when it comes to the economical, they are the champion of the enviromentalists. The first time they got voted into Riksdagen was 1994 and has been living on the fringe since then.

These three parties make up the left bloc and is currently in power, though mp almost rocked the boat after the election result, which meant that s and v would lack one vote to get a majority in Riksdagen if mp didn’t agree to cooperate.

I stole a page from Nationalencyklopedin, detailing the election results the past 90 years:
