She says that she herself joined in the party that she in addition to the environment was passionate about social issues such as human rights, international solidarity and equality.
And the parts I have missed in the green Party. Secondly, in the actual policy and what we are actually communicating. I believe that Magnus can speak from the heart and he knows what he is talking about and stands for what he says, says Jansson.Magnus P Wåhlin. Photo: Henrik Montgomery/TT

" I am passionate about the social and economic issues. Now we need to find a way to talk about how this klimatomställningen shall be made so that everyone can feel that they will be with us on this journey. We can't increase the gaps in society, at the same time that we ask about, " Wåhlin.
" I mean that the vast majority of swedes want to be with and set about. Most people know that the future is tough for our children. If you then feel that ”I can't be with us on this journey” but I have to choose an inferior product when I shop in the store, which I know is worse for the climate. I can't afford to set the car for I live in a certain place in Sweden. When you feel that you do not count. And it is also the major problem. Now we see people in Europe who feel that they are not allowed to be with.

I have followed the mouthpieces who are close and know what is required, and I'm not so sure that Magnus has it. I am afraid that there will be a new He is, " says Maria Gardfjäll.
