fjordhulder asked: Thank you for the compliment! I don't think I've said it but I love this whole gothic transformation you've gone through this year, it suits you so well! I love every picture I see of you :D
Seriously though, that shade is perfect! What brand of hair dye is it?
And thank you :D It’s like I’ve gone back to my roots! (I was über goth when I was about 14, but these last years I’ve been so lazy…)
Anonymous asked: How did the Swedish election go?
In my opinion the outcome was almost the worst imaginable. Many (including myself) were hoping for a change in government, which we got, but the result was so weak that the Social Democrats still need to cooperate with the Liberal Party and the Centre Party (hell, perhaps even the Christian Democrats) in order to have power to shut out the Sweden Democrats/SD (read: racist right-wing populists whose answer to every issue is “immigrants are to blame”). SD got 13% of the votes, making them the third biggest party in Sweden - simply because they provide an easy scapegoat for the people. The Feminist Initiative, which I hoped would get into parliament, didn’t make the four percent barrier. Also, the Social Democrats are refusing to work with the Left Party, because their demands to stop profits within social welfare clashes with the Social Democrats’ wishes to form an alliance with the bourgeois parties. I just feel like most parties are abandoning their ideological principles in order to keep themselves in power.
Actually I’m a little scared when I think about our country’s future. However, since the Social Democrats are back in charge, I’m hoping that our healthcare system will improve a little, and that as a result our society will be a little kinder to the sick and the poor instead of saying “suit yourself”.
Discussing Swedish politics in English isn’t exactly easy, but I hope that makes some sense :)
