The election is coming up this Sunday, and all of a sudden everybody is a Stalinist, a Nazi or a protectionist. "We don't want to be a part of the European monteary joint venture, unless there is something concrete in it for us. We are content with our own, unconditionally rotten economics, and we don't want anybody to touch it." Swedish Realpolitik is the pits. 25 years ago, the USD or the GBP was one third the exchange rate we get nowadays. 85%+ of the people in the government think that Euro would be a good idea, to ensure steady trade with the EC. Enter the Swedish people: "Not everything has been better since we joined the EC. I will vote 'No' to the Euro just to show these politicians (all of them) that this is just crap. Stalin was right, by the way. He knew not to change a working system. Even if it was not working, we were used to it."
