The people have spoken

In the latest political poll asking which party to vote for, the governing coalition have a lead over the labour/left wing parties for the first time since October 2006. Quite a surprise to many since bad times usually means that people want the government to take care of things just like they did in the good old days, i.e. the 1940's-1970's. Which in my very personal opinion shows that people finally have realised that the government shouldn't take care of from the cradle to the grave.

They have also realised something else more important, that the chief of the trade union is just like everybody else. Allowing big bonuses to the top managers of the people's own pension funds and then saying that she didn't know. And on top of that claiming that she's still a simple worker, getting paid more than 1 million SEK a year. Then you're not a simple worker, then you're a hypocrite.
