Wether the Sweden Democrats now will have impact or not depends on how media and the other parliament parties act, says Daniel Poohl.
- The Sweden Democrats can grow and diminish. The most important is what impact the party’s ideas will have. Previously Sweden distinguished itself as one of few countries where we did not have a party like the Sweden Democrats in our parliament. Now that era is passed. Let us instead become a country that distinguishes itself because we woun’t let the party’s ides influence us.
