We’ve been blinded by the chaotic election in USA to notice what’s been going on right in front of us.
My home town has been ruled by the social democrats (S) since the election, but this fall their budget was overruled by the oppositions. This resulted in the boards leaving their positions open and yesterday the local politicians voted for a new board. The right-wing party Moderaterna (M) won the chairmanship by one vote over the extreme right party Sweden democrats, SD (there’s nothing “democratic” over their politics. They genuinely want to take away citizenship from people. People like immigrants, people who supports immigrants and LGBT+ people. They have firm roots in the nazi movement). In return the opposition voted for the SDs candidate for vice chairman who won by one vote over the social democrats (S)
This is the ugliest power-game I’ve ever seen. The opposition has broken their principles just in order to grasp the power!
These are my new employers. People who don’t think that my life matters. The very people who are delighted by Tumps statements about Sweden and take the chance when they see it to add to the fire.
In addition, the budget they won with is unrealistic. The school districts much needed investment budget was cut by roughly $600 000. Money that was aimed for investments to fulfill the governments demands on Swedish schools. It’s easy to create a nice-looking budget when you’re in opposition, but just cutting in it without any explanation is just plain stupid. Good luck with that, now you’re the ones who’s accountable!
Yes I’m mad. And a bit scared. We’ll see where this leads, let’s just say that our escape-plan is planned a bit more in detail at the moment.
