One of our neighbours has a point

"I get really angry when I look at Sweden today. [...] Just look at Paris - the suburbs are burning. The immigrants live in the horrible, ghettoized suburbs where the houses are collapsing. In Sweden you see that the barriers of class increase. We are not talking about industrial workers, because soon we won't have any industry, but instead we have many proletarized fugitive and immigrant groups. Single parents, predominantly women. Those are the new-poor in Europe."

- Tiina Rosenberg, co-founder of the Swedish feminist party "Feministiskt Initiativ".
