  • The top politicians: Sweden spreads lies

    The Hungarian delegation has visited the Speaker of Sweden’s Riksdag, Andreas Norlén, reports TT. They are satisfied with the visit, says Csaba Hende, the deputy speaker of the Hungarian parliament.

    – We support Sweden’s NATO membership, he says.

    Hende describes the meeting as “warm and friendly” and that it gave perspective on a new start.

    – We made it clear that the Hungarian government, the Hungarian president, the prime minister and most of the Hungarian parliamentarians clearly support Swedish NATO membership.

    However, he suggested that Swedish politicians based facts on untruths about Hungary’s rule of law principles.

    – It would be desirable that Swedish politicians, government representatives and members of the EU Parliament, based on completely untrue facts, do not indicate or imply that there is a lack of rule of law in a country.

    TT then asked if Hungary had problems with the rule of law, the rights of LGBTQ people and the freedom of the media.

    – I don’t see such problems, but everything can of course be discussed. But you shouldn’t spread lies.

    The Hungarian parliament is expected to make a decision later in March to approve Sweden’s NATO membership.

  • 1. Can a government be removed due to no confidence? And because they lied about pretty much all the election promises that a government even went to election on together?

    2. How to do it?


    Hello! In order to remove a government, the Riksdag can direct a motion of no confidence against the prime minister. It is required that more than half of the Riksdag’s 349 members vote for the Prime Minister to be impeached in order for him to be dismissed. This happened in the summer of 2021, when Stefan Löfven was deposed. However, he was reinstated shortly afterwards.

    But we citizens cannot remove a government, but it must be done through the Riksdag.

    I wonder if you have any idea how many victims have been found so far after the earthquake in Turkey and Syria.

    Leif Larsson

    Hello! According to international media, the death toll was over 50,000 at the end of February.

  • Instead of having a lot of drivel about infidelity & couple problems, you can instead post a flasher that today at 3 pm Hesa ​​Fredrik will be tested.

    Is it appropriate for the media to take responsibility & inform about this in these troubled times.



    Hello. Thank you for the reminder. We are aware of that.
