Working weekend (Pride and Björkvik)
On Saturday I walked in the fantastic Pride-parade through Stockholm, above you can see fellow blogger (and MP) Maryam handing out roses.
[Read a personal column about the Pride-festival here and an article about it here].
Sunday meant Björkvik and Sweden’s Prime Minister Göran Persson’s yearly speech there. It was the best speech I have heard Persson deliver at Björkvik, mostly because of the clear international perspective (the turmoil in the Middle East), the long-term perspective and link to sustainable development (through our dependence on oil), and clear ideological focus when talking about reforms (we will keep the economy in order so that we can help those in most need). Not bad, and promising for the election campaign.

And how should I interpret this review of myself?
