It has been heartening to see the results of the Swedish election, where an anti-immigration party, the Swedish Democrats (a party similar to the APP) has, for the first time, had members elected to parliament.
This success has proved the naysayers wrong, as there were those in Sweden who thought it would be a waste of time to support a political party; instead, Swedish nationalists have shown that we can win seats in parliament and have an influence upon a country’s policies. The rise of the Swedish Democrats has affected the balance of power in that country to the point of creating a hung parliament, creating a situation like in Australia where a handful of newly elected people can hold the balance of power.
As in Sweden, the possible election of several nationalists to parliament in Australia in a future election could change the whole nature of our national politics, giving us the capability to influence the outcome of national elections, and to truly create a significant voice for the Australian People.
This Swedish result follows on from the electoral success of other similar parties in Europe, where patriotic groups have recently been elected into parliament:
In Holland the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV, Geert Wilder’s party) won 24 seats in the 2010 general election, making it the third largest party in the country.
In Belgium the Flemish Interest (Vlaams Belang) won 12 seats in the 2010 general election (winning 19% of the Flemish constituency).
In Switzerland the Swiss People’s Party (Schweizerische Volkspartei, SVP), won 64 seats in the 2007 general election (winning 29% of the vote, the highest any party has ever received in Switzerland).
All of this shows us that it is possible for people to break free of the political quicksand of Liberal-Labor politics and bring forward results to protect the future of our people.
