Personal Quote:

I'm one for solidarity. A society where one shares, and feels responsibility towards others. Unfortunately, we've had a period where to look after one another is seen as old-fashioned. This is the path Sweden has taken politically. But it's evident that it hasn't worked out. It is a painful insight, which I think people will start to realise more and more. See more »
