Sweden’s weird Christians Democrats

Sweden has a very small and rather strange Christian Democratic party, and right now they have a gathering in Gothenburg. Therefore I was invited to a TV-panel (SVT24) where fellow journalists Sofia Nerbrand and Daniel Grahn (both very nice) and I discussed whether the Christian Democratic party will pass the threshold to the Riksdag (you need to get four percent of the popular vote).

I think they probably will, but they are experiencing some problems right now. They are throwing out new ideas all the time, and I think voters might get confused and just remember them as the little weird right-wing party. You know, the party that think that some people should hide their love on Brokeback Mountain, and who also worries about the growing gap between the woman and the stove. Needless to say, this is not my favorite political party...

Anyway, you can watch the debate here (our discussion starts 21 minutes into the clip).
