And if he were a Social Democrat?

The question of the day is whether the Social Democrat Party ever could keep a Finance Minister if (s)he had the same skeletons in the closet as Anders Borg apparently has (oh yes, more sins were revealed today). Moreover, my mum, who is a very wise woman, asked me why the women in the new government are forced to leave, while the tax-evading men can stay on. Beats me.

Started a mini-tour today during which I will visit social democratic clubs/organizations and lecture/talk about why we lost the election and what should be done now. It is so much fun and at tonight’s meeting in Hammarbyhöjden I met a young woman who visited her first social democratic meeting ever, and a man who has been a member for some 60 years (he played professional football for Hammarby IF in the late 1930s and in the early 1940s). I love this party.

The Internet makes life so much more enjoyable. Right now I listen to Bordeaux-Liverpool thanks to a web-based radio service provided by Liverpool FC.

Watched the filmMe and you and everyone we know” with Emma and my sister Anna last weekend. I really like weird, independent American movies but I didn’t like this one.

But I really like the version of “Bring’em home” on the new edition of Bruce Springsteen's “We shall overcome – The Seeger Sessions”. And Bruce comes to Stockholm on Monday…

Thanks again for a very good lecture last night!

I totally agree with your mother! And now we'll probably see Borelius and Stegö Chiló being replaced by two men, starting with Dinkelspiel...

Bodström, former MINISTER OF JUSTICE in the social democratic goverment had black labour in form of a housekeeper. He could stay and had complete trust from the prime minister. Mona Sahlin, on the other hand, bought some toblerone chocolate which was devestating for her.

I think it says a lot about swedish journalists that they let bodstöm slip away so easily and now they chase Anders Borg like a pack of starving dogs.

Sadly it may be a case of gender discrimination instead. Women have to leave while the men get to stay...
