Ewa Stenberg: Gudibrallan gives Video: a lesson before the first of may

”the First of may has always been your red day
Others may write you a arbetsstrejkarlag
Third may so call you real socialist
the Fourth of may we discover that you are D”

the Text comes from the intel releases Gudibrallans early 70 talshit ”Sosse”. After the student revolt in 1968 had left a strong momentum and began to criticize the dominant party to do anything for power.

A vänstervåg blew up, that would change the society fundamentally. It was a long time ago. Backlash came and blew over, for many years was ago the most important thing in the political middle.

once out to the outer edges. The social democrats are light years away from the majority, which the party had in the second chamber when the Gudibrallan did the song. Now trying to S come to terms with not having accumulated 30 percent of the vote, the worst election results in over a hundred years.

S have a little slängigt put, handled it about as Gudibrallan describes in the verse above.

The S-led government has already proposed an intervention in the right to strike. In addition, the minister for employment Ylva Johansson (S) appointed a commission of inquiry to take forward proposals to make it easier and cheaper for employers to dismiss staff.

the Government also intends to lower the income tax for those who earn the most. And liberalise hyrespolitiken.

All of that like it, the parliamentary situation together with the former Folkpartisterna, now the Liberals and the Centre party. Stefan Löfvens party has realized its goal of breaking the logic of blocs and to be able to stay in power has compromised away much of the heart issues.

LO was an important explanation for the fact that it was even worse for the S in the elections, their campaign workers called a quarter of a million LO members to convince them to refrain from the SD's ballot. During the valspurten French socialists economic policy pretty far to the left, paired with favouring a tight immigration policy. It lifted the rates after a hefty slump in the spring and spread the good atmosphere between the LO and the party.

Now has changed course entirely and joined from the left in economic policy to the right. The liberals and the Centre party managed to never sell their most controversial högerreformer to the moderate prime minister Fredrik Reinfeldt. But they managed to sell both the liberalisation of labour law, hyrespolitik and the elimination of the war to the S and MP.

S have also liberalized migration policy with the new partners. But arbetareväljarna want to according to different opinion polls see a tighter immigration policy. They would also like LO to the income gap to be reduced and that it should be harder, not easier, for companies to terminate employees.

tend to be given demands on the first of may. So why should the trade unions support the democrats when the government is moving in the opposite direction? It required great skill to the previous fackförbundsledaren Leaves to keep the heat in the relationship with the LO after Januariavtalet.

the Argument, which has received both the LO that is Left to swallow mittensamarbetet is that the alternative was worse. A Moderatledd government dependent on the sweden democrats ' votes are from the leftist out of the frying pan into the fire.

But this insight spreads hardly any red roses on the protesters ' cheeks in vårvärmen. Who are passionate about pragmatism? And what remains really of the social democrat party when the weakened employment protection legislation and more money for the rich are on the program?

The great framtidsprojektet that the social democrats long-sought look to top it all out to be farther away than in a long time. Januariuppgörelsens 73 points put in principle, the fittings on the scope for reform, during the whole term of office. New reforms need to be financed with tax increases or spending cuts. It will not be easy because the Centre party and the Liberals have profiled themselves on not wanting to raise taxes while S and MP profiles in not wanting to cut down public expenditure.

is the social democrats 'core', wrote the agitator August Palm in the movement's dawn. He stands statue at Norra Bantorget, and reminds the minister of finance Magdalena Andersson (S) on the socialist roots when she should speak.

A less discreet way of reminder, the Left party, which often brings together more protesters than the greater of the ruling party. Januariavtalet has given Jonas Sjöstedt party access to the whole vänsterflanken and a brilliant position to grow.

If not now the social democrats have learned something of Gudibrallan and what became of the old vänstervågen.
