Feminist blockages

The cat-fighting for the female vote in Sweden is heating up. Now the country's most powerful union group, LO, has come out against the Feminist party.
Feminist Inititative (FI) has damaged feminism in Sweden, according to the leader of the powerful LO union group...

“FI has become a kind of feminist blockage,” Wanja Lundby-Wedin told TT.
Ouch, a feminist blockage. Enema, stat! Her solution for the women of Sweden? Come back to the feminist Social Democrats
“I am afraid that these questions have been killed off,” said Lundby-Wedin, who added that she sees the Social Democrats, with which LO is allied, as a feminist party.
Hardly a feminist party, biggest bunch of crusty old men I've ever seen. The women who look threatening get bundled off to Brussels pretty sharpish. As for LO being "allied" with the Social Democrats, well Ms Lundby-Wedin is more than closely allied, she sits on the board of the party! Her name is sometimes bandied round as a successor to Persson when he retires sometime soon. Allied indeed. The real problem for the Social Democrats is this though
With less than a year to the general election, the LO leader says the situation on the employment market will be crucial for the outcome. She believes that certain Social Democrat voters have switched to the Moderates because of their proposals for tax cuts for people in work.
Oh dear, the righty Moderates are pinching voters from the Social Democrats. I haven't seen breakdowns of these "certain voters" but the inference is there is a significant number of women leaving the mothership so the natural reaction is to pin it on the crazies of the far left in the Feminist party.

Phil, you're trolling again. Bloggers are free to comment on anything ridiculous that catches their eyes. After all it is their blog and a free world. It is not indicative of some sort of mental illness. If such shallow observations were valid, then what might one conclude from your lack of sentence structure and punctuation?

Laziness, sloppiness, and a lack of attention to detail.

BTW Phil, could you post a copy of your thesis on Whoar for us to read?

Phil, you might have noticed a theme of comparing politics in similar countries (here Sweden) to NZ. As a supporter of a small party that got nailed in the election by the ruling party, despite all the window dressing being done now, I thought even you'd like to read about similar things going on elsewhere. The fact that it is the feminist party is a bit irrelevant... it is just them making the waves at the moment.
