"Sweden one of the best governed countries in the world"

Sweden the best governed country in the world? Uh well, unless you live in Malmö, are a walking dildo or need help from the police:

Sweden "best brand in the world"

Sweden has topped the rankings in an international survey of the top nation brands. People around the world see the Swedish government as the most trustworthy administration in the world, the Swedish people as the world's most hospitable, and think of Sweden as the best place in the world to live and work. The findings were made in the Anholt-GMI Nation Brands Index, a survey of 10,000 consumers in ten countries. The report's author, Simon Anholt, says Sweden is "almost universally admired". One measure in which Sweden did particularly well was hospitality. That Sweden came top in rankings of good government may come as something of a surprise to opposition Moderate Party leader Fredrik Reinfeldt, but he can take comfort from the fact that most people responding to the survey were probably judging Sweden from a position of complete ignorance. "It is unlikely that many of our respondents would be able to name a member of the Swedish government, or identify the party currently in power: these scores are almost certainly pure brand image, and appear to require little substantiation," says Anholt.

The best governed in the world will soon call for help.

Ever watch a frog in a pan of water as it heats to boiling?

A survey a few days ago said that 52 % of the Swedish people are against more immigration, but our socialistic government doesn't mind about the peoples opinion. Last sunday Nalin Pekgul (s) said in radio that if the swedish people thought that the muslims are dangerous they - the Socialdemokrats in Sweden - would just ignore this opinion. That is the spirit in Sweden of today. The people has no fredom of speach because the extreme left are in control of the media.

Well, the Swedish people as the world's most hospitable in the world.

After all, are they not letting in the very people that will eventually replace them?
