    Then why question him on it? If we want to talk about immigration then we will.

    I was interested. Are we not allowed to ask questions?

    I've had a quick check of the rules and I think it's permitted.

    I may be wrong.

    Maybe people are genuinely interested in Swedish politics?

    And start treads on them that introduce immigration in the second post

    I'm not, but you know, maybe some genuinely find Sweden fascinating...

    Maybe because an anti-immigration party is heading to become the second largest in Sweden...

    And maybe because the BBC are reporting the words of the Swedish Prime Minister.

    Or do you not approve of the BBC as a source or the Swedish PM?

    Or maybe there's an election today ...

    I made no reference to the BBC.

    Swedish politics is all the talk in our house too

    It has an air of policing about it, in the same sense as your Markle question.

    It's either that or Johnson being booable again.

    Let's hope his party select him as leader. Labour would be in with a landslide.

    So it was the ''dangers of anti-immigration'' that you had a problem with...

    I didn't realise you were of that particular leaning. Or did you just see the word ''immigration'' and decide to jump on it?

    Just curious here... given your support for anti-immigration policies is your concern here that you have failed to give the anti-immigration party in Sweden your backing?

    I think you are misunderstanding- he's an anti-immigration Brexiteer. He'd hardly support that stand point here, in the UK, but object to it in other countries.

    Not a trace of irony.

    According to Statistics Sweden, 24% of people living in Sweden are of 'foreign background':

    I can appreciate how ethnic Swedes might be concerned at this.

    Exit polls are supposed to be being released soon as the voting has finished...

    I am not anti immigrant. As I said previously if it was down to me I would have an open door policy particularly for those from Africa and I would take your investments and pensions to pay for the infrastructure needed to accomodate them. People have been brought into the UK and their presence has been used to keep wages low and housing costs high making a bad situation worse for the poor and working poor in this country. That is what I object to.

    I don't know enough about the situation in Sweden to either support or not support the anti-immigration party.

    I simply asked why you included an article about immigration. I said nothing about having a problem.

    You seem a bit upset.
  17. lanokia

    lanokia Star commenter

    Well the exit polls are done...

    Am I suppose to rise to this feeble effort to bait?

    You had a problem with the word ''immigration'' ... it blew up in your face... I suggest you move on.
  19. lanokia

    lanokia Star commenter

    And yet you keep posting on a thread about it...

    Maybe get informed and then contribute?

    On the contrary I think it is you who have a problem with my questioning of your motives.

    Judging by your reaction I may have touched a raw nerve..
