The Local _ Swedish news _ Swedish Political Elite Are But Children Fighting

Posted by: Gjeebes 22.Nov.2018, 06:11 PM

So Lööf isn't cut from the right cloth.

What a shock.

Who'd have guessed?

Sweden's political scene of late (if not since 4-ever) is the stuff soap-operas are made of.

Who'd have guessed the world's most indecisive nation just can't get its shit together.

This article hits the point

Basically it says that they should lose money as the sick and unemployed do when thay do not work

Well, sacking shovel-face, and then but days later asking him to form a new government, kind of says it all. Obviously not much for choices.

It will go to re-election, and I seriously hope SD win a majority. I don't think they would be such a menace as they have been made out to be.

And pretty much anything would be better than what shovel-face accomplished.

Little do Swedes understand, that most people in the world consider it an unimportant obscure little nation on the fringe of Europe, but for those who do waste their time looking through the looking-glass, they are truly amazed that Sweden can walk and breath at the same time.

But I tell you, from afar, where I am insulated from its sheer stupidity, it's all shits-n-giggles watching Meatballia fall on its face over and over and over again.

Ah, Sweden, the comical beacon of light, in a world of darkness.

The farce just grows more laughable each new day.

Their answer to solving their political dilemma, "let's get the vote-of-no-confidence guy to do it!"

"Sweden's Social Democrat leader Stefan Löfven to be proposed as PM"

https://www.thelocal.se/20181123/what-next-for-sweden-as-political-deadlock-drags-on

And in special Swedish style, it could stand, not because anyone actually agrees to the move, but actually, only if a "majority" disagrees! So it can stand even if a minority disagrees!

"In theory, a government proposal does not need a single vote in its favour in order to pass, but it will fail if a majority votes against it. This means that a government can be "tolerated" by abstentions, sometimes called "passive support"."

Simply WOW!

Meatballia: the original enigma!

The situation in Sweden just proves what a robust democracy exists here and in some other countries where minority governments rule with workable coalitions, such as Germany. These are good examples of how democracy inevitably works - fodder for people like Gjeebes to bitch and moan about nothing in particular.

Would you want a situation like that being seen in Sri Lanka at the moment, fighting between parliamentary members IN the chamber and a constitutional crisis bought about by in-fighting between coalition partners. Yeah, not a good look and likely to end in civil conflict and unrest. That is not how democracy works.

I think we can pretty much ignore Gjeebes and his doom and gloom commentary. He is, and will continue to be, a kvetching curmudgeon.

Somehow the last comment seems to fit right in with a discussion of politics...

Posted by: Gjeebes 24.Nov.2018, 05:22 PM

So, all BlackfDes has up his sleeve is a comparison of Meatballia to Sri Lanka. And his brilliant conclusion is that Meatballia is doing well by comparison.

Simply WOW again.

It comes as no surprise that hens key approach is to begin with name calling with a follow-up of considerable ignorance.

But. Hark. I am now convinced.

Meatballia is just exactly the success story it pretends to be. Suitably verified by Blackf_dork.

Sweden is not a source of comedy.

BlackfDes says: "The situation in Sweden just proves what a robust democracy exists here..."

...and shovel-face leads the following effort, "September 11th [2018]: The Social Democrats contact all parties except the SD to try to find a solution to the political deadlock.". (from: https://www.thelocal.se/20181122/timeline-this-has-happened-in-swedish-politics-since-the-elections)

So, which is it BlackfDes?

The democracy is robust, or, completely corrupt in the name of extreme virtue-signalling?

The Swedish "situation" is largely giving the SD a load of attention and sentiment, and effectively shows their power, as the indecisive, un-creative, flat-line that is the "squabbling Meatballian political elite" take centre stage to demonstrate just how many times in a row they can make a complete mess of things.

Gjeebes, your "analysis" is plain wrong and of such intellectually featherweight intensity that we all wonder why you bother.

Once again you have contributed nothing to a discussion initiated by you, with the aim of criticising the efforts of reaching a coalition here in Sweden. The wheels of democracy roll on without you, Gjeebes, which is really quite satisfying to know. You are but a bitter and twisted drop in a vast ocean that cares little for you spiteful and vacuous opinions.

Typical tactics for one who has nothing to say.

I would say your claim of my vacuousness is simply classic projection since this seems to be the only point you attempt to make, even if you never quite get there.

Didn't think you could grasp the situation let alone contribute the slightest over and beyond your irrelevant disapproval of a differing take on the "facts".

You just add to the ocean of comedy that is the Meatballian "chasing-of-the-tail", in their traditional and favourite way.

Isn't that your usual tactic, Gjeebes?

Simply WOW!

What is Wow! about that!?!
In many countries the Prime Minister is appointed. For example, even in the UK, Mother of All Parliaments, there is no vote for whom will be Prime Minister. At least in Sweden the Parliament has a vote to accept or object.

I agree.

Carl Bildt weighed in on Nov 8th 2018, saying, "a new vote would be dangerous for democracy".

He's always good for a "stick-feet-in-mouth" moment!

Alzheimer's much, Carl?

(from: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-11-11/sweden-braces-for-week-of-political-turmoil-as-nationalists-gain)

Only in Meatballia can a democratic vote be considered dangerous for democracy! lol!

Bahahahaha! Does it get any more amateur? Can it be any more ridiculous, in the Greasy Meatball?
