"Swedish state is in crisis, says election favourite - Ulf Kristersson sees crime wave as serious as 1990s financial meltdown"

1) “There is a crisis in politics being able to solve problems. Is politics able to do anything at all?” said Mr Kristersson before a campaign event in the heart of the Swedish countryside."

2) "Sweden, held up in international surveys as one of the world’s happiest and most successful countries, has been jolted by frequent shootings, grenade attacks and arson attacks on cars in suburbs with a heavy immigrant population in Stockholm, Malmo and Gothenburg."

3) "The state’s powerlessness extended well beyond law and order matters, Mr Kristersson argued, pointing to other areas such as cuts in military spending and decades-long housing problems."

4) "Mr Kristersson said politicians should not blame voters for the situation. “When voters are discontent, don’t blame them. We have the obligation to show that the state can do the stuff that they want us to do. Right now, we rather prove that politics can’t do what it should do,” he added."

Sweden, the goodest country! The funny thing is, they are great at making problems for themselves, but hopeless at solving them.

Should be some entertainment for some time yet to come!

Smoke and mirrors...

Sure, just pre-election posturing. The Swedes are great at that!

But I wonder have they really learned their lessons?

I sincerely doubt it!

Fixing problems, means someone might have to go to bed with hurt feelings, and that is in Sweden, a hate crime!

And the posturing doesn't end there. The Swedish political scene is a complete cluster fuck.

Don't fret about the title, Hanif Bali is just a segue into the actual mess of it all.

What's actually amazing, is how a very young man has collected the bits and put the picture together, with facts!

Yet no main-stream Swedish "news" medium has been as bothered to get the story out there.

May be due to the fact that there is little difference between right and left in the political soap-opera that defines the Swedish politico, captured in the next episode of "How the Greasy Meatball Spins".

I am still waiting for pt2 of "world class chemist leaves Sweden for other country where everything is better and where his talents are recognized, yet spends all his time trash talking Sweden".

It really doesn't require much time or effort to continue to expose the goodest country for what it is.
