The Center party, again (European style)
You want me to pick one policy area showing the need of the EU? The environment, of course! The Swedish Center party has always been pretty environmental when it comes to public policy, but now they are doing a sharp turn rightwards into the arms of the German chemical lobby, it seems like. I wrote about this earlier this week, a Swedish environmental organization sent out a press release last week and today Mats Engström (great columnist!) highlights the same thing in Aftonbladet: what is Lena Ek, MEP for the Swedish Center party, up to?

turn-of-my party is)
