Election watch: No problems for Persson
I think that Göran Persson did very well, and it was clearly the experienced statesman we saw, rather than just another smiling politician. He listened well and really tried to answer the questions he got from the audience, and he was very clear from an ideological point of view when discussing real estate tax and the shameless, prevailing existence of poor children in our country.
Sadly enough, the best thing was not the good answers Göran Persson gave, but the fact that he did not mess anything up (like Reinfeldt did on radio). And I wonder how Expressen’s “panel of ordinary voters” will review the debate (read more about why the panel is questionable at aip.nu).
