The mostly left-wing newspaper The Guardian today published an article covering the Swedish elections which are set to confirm a European trend that has been going on for a while, aka the anti-immigration, anti-European parties are bound to win.

With the upcoming European elections next year in May in mind, the newspaper group published an important subtitle, admitting that the reason for the electoral success is because ‘the elite has lost touch with the people.’

Interviews published across various European media this week seem to prepare the general public for a historical upset to come as Sweden is always portrayed as the ultimate democratic economy. Whereas Norway, Denmark and Finland already have nationalist parties in their parliament, Sweden has seen the right-wing Sweden Democrats being shut out from participating in government.

However, if the current polling, which has remained largely unchanged over the summer, holds true for another two weeks, the main governing parties will be unable to form a coalition without the anti-immigrant party or will be forced to implement their ideas.

The outcome would end 100 years of Social Democratic dominance in Sweden.

The Sweden Democrats aim for drastic cuts in immigration. Their agenda is part of a global wave of nationalist and anti-establishment sentiment that has followed the 2008 financial crisis, with the election of Donald Trump in the U.S. and Britain’s vote to leave the European Union standing out as the starkest examples of the new world order.

Mr Roger Mathson, a retired vegetable oil factory worker who intends to vote form them, states: “Trains and hospitals don’t work, but immigration continues.”

“I’m not a racist, but I’m a nationalist. I don’t like seeing the town square full of Niqab-clad ladies and people fighting with each other.”

Ms Pia Persson, a 60-year-old who lives in Kristianstad and works at Absolut Vodka, claims: that when she goes to the doctor’s office, she’s sometimes the “only Swede.”

“I think you need to start seeing the whole picture in Sweden and save the original Swedish population.”

“I’m not racist, because I’m a realist.”

The Sweden Democrats are said to be Steve Bannon’s favourite party with their programme of anti-immigration and cultural nationalism.

The mainstream parties tried for years to ignore them entirely but they entered parliament for the first time in 2010. By now the party has grown to be the third, and will quite possibly soon be the second, largest in the country.
