Well, at least in Sweden, ministers do resign when they are involved in scandals... Tongue

That might be weird... by Swedish standards. In France party bosses rarely quit even when they've lost any credibility. And sometimes, they get reelected.

Wow, the Social Democrats are on a roll again ?

By "on a roll", I obviously mean that they would only get their second-worst post-1920 performance if the election were held today. Tongue

A late February poll from Sentio in Dagens Næringsliv (business daily) shows the Norwegian Progress Party at it's nadir since 1995, while Labour is above 43% and the combined left wing above 52%, with the Greens just below the threshold. The Progress Party has been polling miserably for a long time after having to compromise on a wide range of issues. Norway seems to be a good case for strangling right wing populists by giving them responsibility.

Progress Party 9,2 (16,3 in the 2013 election)
Conservatives 21,4

Christian People's Party 5,4
Liberals 4,6
Centre Party 5,8

Labour 43,4
Socialist Left 4,3
------------
Greens 3,6
Red 1,0

What has caused this massive rebound for DNA? Is the government already unpopular?

SII has been an MP since 2009 and claims she wants to at the same time modernize the party, and get back to focusing on basic SD issues like decent wages and better housing, social justice and human rights. She also states that SDA needs to acknowledge the mistakes the party committed in government and reconcile with the voters that left them over the unimplemented constitution, failure to implement  a new just fishing quota system and find a solution for debtridden families to keep their houses.

Endorsed.

The Danish SDs should be euthanized.

Aw, libertarians grow up so fast :') cute

If they grow up into disgusting right-wingers, I'd rather send them to Neverland.
