Moderaterna (conservative, neoliberal party) starts their election campaign today. “There’s a new party in Sweden”, posters will say. Well, I still think it’s the same old neoliberalist crap as always. Even if they steal an old poster from Socialdemokraterna (Social Democrats, nothing to do with socialism in any way).
Moderaterna also tell us that they are the new workers party in Sweden. This is where it gets confusing. Did we have a workers party before? Socialdemokraterna likes to call themselves that, but no worker has set foot in that party since the seventies. And now there is another workers party. Ohh, no, in Moderaterna no worker has ever set his foot.
Now I’m waiting for the new party for cynics, they will get my vote.
