Following four months of political gridlock and three seperate votes on who should be Prime Minister, Sweden has a new PM and its the same as the old one.
Stefan Lofven infamously declared “My Europe builds no walls” and now he is back in power for another four years. During his tenure in 2015/16 migrants flooded into Sweden reducing the country to a state of near-anarchy.
He was put back in office by the Swedish communist Party, the Vansterpartiet, specifically to thwart the populist Swedish Democrats.
Unsurprisingly, Lofven, while paying lip-service to Sweden’s “challenges” has announced plans to increase migration. Restrictions on measures such as family reunification which have been in place since 2015 are to be lifted.
Last night saw a bombing in Kista, hardly an auspicious start for the new regime as the anarchy on Sweden’s streets continues:
BOMBING in Sweden!
Pizza restuarant was attacked tonight in the city of Kista, which is located close to no-go zones.
Police say that explosives were used.
There is a bombing crisis in Sweden. But there’s almost nothing about it in international media. Why???

Clearly, the new Prime Minister has no solutions. The Swedish Democrats will however be seen as the clear opposition to the new regime and they have a chance to build on their previous strong showings as soon as new elections come around.
