Ohly no longer a commie!

The leader of the Left party in Sweden has decided not call himself a communist anymore, even if he says that his opinions remain the same. Needless to say, to call yourself a commie in Sweden today implies that you often have to start with explaining what you mean by that. And the fights in the Left party has been... impressive, and Ohly is now hoping to be able to move on, discuss his party's political position, and hopefully end the infighting in the party. I can only wish him good luck, even if this happened waaaaaay to late. But it is probably better for him to be perceived as a not fully trustworthy flip-flopper than as an old-time communist. A small but maybe important improvement, one might conclude.

Kom igen nu Eric, det är väl för fan ingen som orkar läsa dina utvikningar när du skriver på engelska. Det är ju löjligt. Du kan väl gruppbomba dina international connections med mejl och hålla dig till partiets koncernspråk på sajten.

To hear Ohly claim that he no longer is a communist is about as exciting as if the pope would say that he is a catholic.

Hej anonym. Jag skriver på en blogg med partiets koncernspråk, kolla aip.nu. Och jag kommer fortsätta skriva på engelska här, i synnerhet eftersom så många läsare kräver det. Senast i helgen fick jag mejl av en engelsk sosse som har hittat min blogg och nu länkar till mig. Så växer ett nätverk av internationella sossebloggar fram, vare sig du vill eller inte. Så anonym: Jag tror dig inte, du ljuger, och jag kommer att spela f**king högt.
