"Is the agreement between Stefan Löfven and Centernu002FLiberalerna the beginning of the end for the social democrats as a somewhat large party? It is a beginning to the French, Italian, Dutch and German conditions, a life between 6 and 16 per cent? So it has gone to all of the parties that allowed themselves to be bound in a neo-liberal cage with soft flattery on the ”responsibility”. "
"A social democratic party that no longer stands for a social democratic politics is losing not only the confidence, but in the longer term, its raison d'être."
"think-Tank Catalysis, and my analysis of the development in Sweden since the 1980s shows a rampant society, with the deepest inequality and (relative) poverty in northern Europe and with the largest förmögenehetskoncentrationen in the whole of Western europe. A stronger klasstämpling of the schools system and health care, with a deeper korruptionsträsk on all the areas where the taxpayers ' money to meet private companies and consultants. Add to that a chief and a political system in the first place care about höginkomsttagarnas interests, and their own private. In addition, it is a society which is facing major technological changes in the labour market."
"the Voters never got any real opportunity to get an overview of the class society the ravages, than less to judge it. The distribution of seats did not give any clear political direction. In this situation, the quest is to ”mittenpolitik” understandable. But on the economic-social sphere, the promise, the agreement between S, C, L and MP this millennium most aggressive right-wing politics. "
"The centre party vice-chairman boasts that the now agreed policy is more conservative than Alliansregeringens."
"What Löfven and his circle agreed is, among other things:"
"Among the agreement's 73 points is no single proposal on the reduction of existing social cleavages, however, a number destined to increase them."
"LO and the social democratic left was silent and still while the secret negotiations with the bourgeoisie was going on, and now it is like it is. The future is unknown, but the risks are great, as the gentle LO president Karl-Petter Thorwaldsson rightly put it."
"But there is still a way for social democracy in Sweden: the Left party. Löfven has according to a source treated V as a ”doormat” as you dry the feet to go into the finrummet with the bourgeois gentry. "
"V has two strong reasons to say so. The most natural and least important, of self-respect. S has always figured into the V of the parliamentary arithmetic, with a mandats ”rödgrön” overweight. Party has no honor and pride, may not accept that now is treated like a dirty doormat."
"But more than the left party pride and honor is at stake. It is the party's raison d'être. What is the point of a party which voted in the century of right-wing politics?"
"Anyway, in the end is another question more important than one or the other party's future. It is the wage earners and all ickeprivilegierade citizens of the future, that is to say, the future for all of us outside the capital and the authorities. Shall march from the 1980s back to the ståndssamhället continue? There may be forces in the future who can stop it?"
"SD's threats of mass deportations and tearing down the poor suburbs will not be realized during the next term, even under a government led by Ulf Kristersson. The social costs of such four years would be about the same – maybe slightly less – as a mittenregering represented by a grundlurad Leaves. And after four years, voters might have forgotten that Annie Lööf and Jan Björklund once played the shirt off him."
"All we are now awaiting the decisions of the historic moment."
