  •  Norway too (5+ / 0-)

    In closely-related news, in the Norwegian local elections two days ago, Norway's anti-immigration party Fremskrittspartiet (the Progress Party.. not to be confused with actual progressive politics) took a major blow, losing about 1/3 of their votes. (Their association with Breivik no doubt soils them, but I actually think the Danish People's Party are somewhat more extreme)

    So we now have Social Democrats in coalition in Norway, Denmark and Finland, and perhaps the tides have finally started to turn for the anti-immigration populists.

    Random bit of European-left trivia.. I didn't know before today that Thorning-Schmidt's husband is Stephen Kinnock - son of Neil Kinnock, the old UK Labour Party leader!
