Erik Helmerson: Ebba Busch Thor win votes for a divided party

Everyone loves a winner. The who wonder how the success of the sounds could listen to the applause when Ebba Busch Thor took the stage at Their municipality - and regional policy days in Örebro.

For a couple of years ago appeared to the party in Almedalen in front of an american flag. This time the sing the she a, by wearing helgult put on a deep blue stage. And the applause must have been heard to Västerås.

the Contrast to the last KD-days could not be sharper.

gathered a krisparti with 3% electoral support to the municipality - and landstingsdagar in Jönköping, sweden. Busch Thor gave a speech about health care and attacked Stefan Löfven.

in Order to give boost came the good partiledarvännerna in the Alliance and greeted. There was talk of the need for moderate preferential votes, but Ulf Kristersson got boos when he joked from the stage: ”it Is all christian democrats, who are sitting here?” The title in Blekinge County Journal read: ”Who shall comfort the christian democrats?”

today, everything is different. Ebba Busch Thor carried on the applause, the cast breaks the 10-procentsvallen and those who need both comfort stödröst is the Liberals.

that KD got new voters for two reasons. Secondly, the Busch Thor the leader who is most prominent in the art to take the conflict with the left in general and Stefan Löfven in particular. First, there is obviously a great väljargrupp who dislike both The sweden democrats as immigration and the left. These had been able to vote on the Ulf Kristersson but is now in the KD:s tailwind. Everyone loves a winner.

But a key question is whether these new backers know what they are like. They know, for example, that KD is still a party that operates aid projects in Africa on ”gender equality and sustainable development” together with the C, S and MP?

Also in, for example, on the issue of refugees has KD clear traces of christian empathy. We read a little bit on the website:

that occurred in the Mediterranean is partly due to the EU's restrictive visa policy. We want it to be easier to travel legally into EUROPE to seek asylum. The right to family reunification should apply.”

I ask Ebba Busch Thor, if the party is planning a revision of the commission given in the new väljarbasen. The answer is a for a politician, unusually straight no.

More police officers and stricter penalties against sex crimes can be easily launched as a more efficient, and thus more feminist, action against violence against women.

The only political move by KD-days is about women's safety and is a shining example of the party's new self-confidence and positioning. The approach to a social problem that involves nyhögerröster. It is amplified by the signal word: ”groups expose the individual”, ”crimes of honour”. At the same time, brings to the fore a feminist hobby horse, that 80 per cent of the lethal violence against women occurs in the home.

”We want to grasp the real problem of equality,” said Ebba Busch Thor at the press conference. Real, you can understand, unlike signalpolitik as workplace menscertifiering and gender quotas of the film.

More police officers and stricter penalties against sex crimes can be easily launched as a more efficient, and thus more feminist, action against violence against women.

can also be let as 1 200 municipal and regional christian democrats who mingle out from a seminar about security for drinking coffee in front of the banners and posters with the text ”Make the EU the right again”. That the message is illustrated by the last KDU-president Sara Skyttedal, one of the less lagoma political top people in the country, is ironic, but the contradiction illustrates the KD well.

At Conventum in Örebro, it is easier to get a camel through the eye of a needle than to find any vigorous opposition to the Ebba Busch Thor. Everyone loves a winner, not least the christian democrats who, for years, walked in opinionsöknen.

not embracing her shift in the perception of SD. In an article in the newspaper the Day, at the same time as the KD-days will be opened, writes Bert-Inge Karlsson from the Cliff that he wants to pause his / her membership.

”What has happened is that the party moved away in a direction that appeals to new högerkonservativa voters but, as I think, do many of the earlier kärnväljare lost,” he writes, and react especially on the partiledarens oscillation on the SD-cooperation:

”There are so many of you, I committed myself along with the about which I wonder: 'How are you?' and 'How are you?'”

One of the participants in Örebro tell us how she thinks: ”It's not the KD, I joined in. But the feeling is such that I get fewer and fewer.”

Are there any party – in addition to S who have to reconcile betongtillväxt with identitetsvänster – which has so fragmented the personality is, so far between the extremes? It is clear that there is a contradiction between the fierce conservatism and empathetic christianity. Should the party manage to overcome it?

”Within christendom today there is a movement that speaks a lot about the environment, gender equality and the issue of refugees, something you often associate with parties that are located more to the left. At the same time has KD been more to the right,” says Emma Jeppsson, university of Gothenburg for the Day. She notes that there still is no direct conflict – and that support for the party among christian voters is stable.

that the parties you shed skins and change the core values. Is Ebba Busch prepared to take that step? If someone asked the question in Örebro, sweden, were drowned in the applause. Everyone loves a winner.
