AfS have launched their campaign #enhalvmiljon, indicating the number of immigrants (half a million) they want out at the very least. 88.000 (makes you think) of them would be immigrants with Swedish citizenship.
They plan to reduce the number of immigrants with Swedish citizenship with financial incentives to renounce their citizenship.
I personally find it uncomfortable reading
Disturbing indeed for it parallels the "de-citizenship" of the Jewish part of the German citizenry in the 1930s.
The Elites however have brought it upon themselves (well, not themselves but their window washers and domestics) by forgetting that Newton's third law is: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Brexit, Trump, the Euro-populist wave is all the reaping of the whirlwind that the Elites made in pursuit of their own personal satisfaction/comfort.
Liberal policy wonk and polemicist. Si vis pacem, para bellum
There are now significant divergences between different Swedish polling firms: if you're going to report polling here, you're going to have to report all of it otherwise you're giving a misleading picture. This latest Sentio poll, ftr, actually has the SDs down a point on their last survey.
“Actually, I think ‘A Bend in the River’ is much, much better than Conrad,” Mr. Naipaul said.

It's worth noting that there's also an increase in this YouGov poll of Others [Annat parti] to its highest level this year:
Jul 2018 - 4.7% Jun 2018 - 3,4% May 2018 - 3,9% Apr 2018 - 3,7% Mar 2018 - 4,1% Feb 2018 - 2,4% Jan 2018 - 2,6%
Others registered 1,0% at the last General Election in 2014. In March 2018, with the launch of AfS, Yougov told the Metro that the increase picked up in Others was directly related to support for AfS which was quite close to 2,0%. With Mazuz mentioning upthread that Alternativ för Sverige launched their election campaign early this month, then it seems plausible that this YouGov poll may be picking up an uptick in support for AfS?
There's been quite a lot of debate about the 4% threshold and the Green Party, Christian Democrats and Liberals all potentially slipping under the threshold. Has there been any discussion about AfS unexpectedly reaching the threshold and upsetting electoral arithmetic further in parliament?
Radio Sweden will be doing interviews in English with each of the party leaders for the next few days starting from today. Not sure if they will be accessible out of the country, but if they are then I'm sure they will be of interest to some here.

Yes, lots of 'youths' setting fire to cars, an increasingly regular occurrence in Sweden and indeed other places where there are lots of 'youths'. Let's hope that Swedes take note and vote for parties that will actually do something about these 'youths'.
