Stefan Löfven would just keep his christmas speech in the Avesta in the Sunday afternoon and SVT's reporter Andreas Öbrink described both graphically and maybe a bit of token where we were.
The old welder Stefan Löfven appeared to be at home. We stood namely in Avestaverkets old martänghall, which in the past knocked the coal and forged the steel and that sort of thing – a few minutes earlier, we had also received a pre-recorded elements from the Öbrinks previous eftermiddagsintervju and meeting with Löfven, and as usual got Stefan Löfven exactly the questions he always gets and Andreas Öbrink asked the questions he always asked.
anxiety have to beat all the records. At the same time, at any price, not allowed to be visible.
So here said Stefan Löfven, speaking of the continued failure of the negotiations: ”We could not reach him, but we have spent a considerable amount of time trying to reach compromises, and we continue to talk, I think we have great opportunities to achieve success”.
It was almost so one could suspect that Andreas Öbrink outside the image took up a small spontaneous applause towards the reporterblocket. Yet another successful collaboration between the journalist and the politician. Sure it sounded good? ”Any questions?” ”Absolutely not!”
It is more than three months since the night of the election and the historic moment when the seven parties at the same time, in the mouth of one another, and furthermore, declared that they had won the election. All of them. At the same time. No issues on it either. It was atleast no one who had lost the election. It reminded, actually, not so little of an old political skit from the 70's, where the people's party leader Gunnar Helén being interviewed after his party has not received a single vote, and where he very reluctant to reveal what he himself voted for – at the same time as he would like to take the opportunity to express their gratitude to the tens of thousands (!) dedicated and loyal campaign workers across the country.
Can we really still be in the same revue?
Andreas Öbrink alone should be forced to bear the full responsibility for the overall journalistkårens collective anxiety that the encounter with the power – but who will be the first to break the pattern...? During one of the hottest political autumn in living memory I can not recall a single political reporter in the tv with a single surprising issue. With a single brave question. With a single provocative question.
I'm all ears. Why this terrifying silence?
No man will be the well surprised when Claes Elfsberg rakes it with his hand, and he-goats all the way down to the floor out of fear to displease the Queen Silvia during their 87:e traditional nonsensintervju with any royalty, but that his intervjustil now also during the autumn, become the highest fashion among the political journalists were as something of a surprise.
And oh, my god, in the years dared to even Claes to ask a question about Silvia Sommerlaths father's party membership in the nazi party, the NSDAP. (The interview aired yesterday, Monday, is available on SVT Play.)
”all of a Sudden there was some kind of hope for Germany, one that made Germany stronger,” explained the queen and Claes Elfsberg nodded, empathetic.
the man in the media fed with theories about how the atmosphere evolves in the country, and it is perhaps halvsant on the semi-private call, twittrandet, baktalandet, krypskjutandet, the coward - and fulspelet. In the public discourse, I think most are becoming increasingly blurred, everything harmlösare and all – quieter.
