Time to meet expectations, Royal

The election heat is going up in France, good article in The Economist today. Needless to say I want Ségolène Royal to win, and I am hoping she can meet expectations when her political platform will be presented later in February.

Before that, some 5 000 debates will be held where the members of the French Socialist Party can come up with conclusions and proposals that will be submitted to Royal. Even the Swedish section of the French PS will have meetings like this (in Stockholm); something we will write about in Aktuellt i Politiken.

As Jonas Morian writes, we are about to change the layout (and some other things) of Aktuellt i Politiken (and Stockholms Tidningen and Ny Tid). I can reveal that the editorial will grow from one to two pages, and that we will increase our reporting of international and EU politics... More to come, and the ”new AiP” will be presented at the SAP congress in March.

Social Europe (“the journal of the European left”) has a new website, and don’t miss the video with Tony Blair’s speech at the Policy Network Conference ”Britain and Europe in the Global Age: Common Challenges, New Opportunities”, including remarks by Helle Thorning-Schmidt, Andre Sapir and Will Hutton.

Finally, I hope y’all have read the PPI Trade Fact of the Week (yes, I am quoted). And don’t forget to have a nice weekend!
