  • Hello editorial So it was a wild after-party last night again, I’m trying again to get an answer to who is responsible for the liquor bill, maybe Tobbe was in on a corner so he might know or is it that simple that they brought liquor themselves??


    Hi Matt!

    I have spoken to the entertainment department and received an answer to your question.

    It is not SVT that stands for any “alcohol bill” at Melodifestivalen’s after parties. The after parties are organized by Live Nation, they are the ones who put on the arena show and also sell the tickets to the audience, so the after parties are funded through this. But there is no free booze at Melodifestivalen’s after-parties. Guests receive a drink ticket whenever they arrive, which can be exchanged for beer, wine or non-alcoholic options, after which you have to pay for your own drink. So the “liquor notes” end up with those who party wildest simply, greets Aftonbladet’s Mello reporter Tobbe Ek.

  • Why is it interesting what the Fed chief thinks and thinks? Do we not have our own will in Sweden?


    Hello John,

    The decisions made by the world’s central banks also have a major impact on the Swedish economy. It will be difficult for the Riksbank to lower or keep the interest rate unchanged if, for example, the Fed raises the interest rate.

  • How long will the snow in Gbg last?


    Hello! According to SMHI, it is expected to snow until Thursday in Gothenburg!

  • 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.
