Crisis-hit Sweden has been plunged into further turmoil as leading politicians turned on each other over who was responsible for tackling Europe’s migrant influx.
Sweden has reached a severe crisis point, given the Muslim migrant attacks that have earned Sweden the status of rape capital of Europe, with numerous violent out-of-control no-go-zones. Over the summer, 80 percent of Swedish police were reported to be wanting to quit over the impossibility of doing their job in the face of the Muslim migrant influx and lack of support from authorities. Now Sweden is pressuring Brussels to try to force other EU countries to take in their fair share of migrants. What is a fair share in this case?
“Crisis deepens in ‘no-go zone’ Sweden as furious MPs clash over EU migrant policy”, by Lizzie Stromme, Express, December 15, 2016:
Moderate Party (MP) leader, Anna Kinberg Batra, has been lambasted by MPs and ministers alike after she demanded Prime Minister Stefan Löfven force the EU to sanction bloc members who refuse to take responsibility for refugees.
Ms Batra’s call for a crack down came ahead of a Brussels summit where top Eurocrats and state leaders are set to discuss the migrant crisis.
The MP leader said: “There are a number of countries who receive a lot of net contribution but are not ready to take responsibility and accept those who need protection.
“There is an ongoing budget discussion among finance ministers and there are both short and long-term opportunities to influence. We must push even harder to get results.”
Earlier this year, the Scandinavian country said it was backing Italy’s demands Brussels cut funds to states who do not take their fair share of asylum-seekers.
And addressing the Parliament on Wednesday, PM Löfven reasserted Sweden, which received over 160,000 asylum applications in 2015 alone, would hold other European Union members to account.
He said: “There must be consequences if they do not take responsibility.”
However, Ms Batra’s decision to pressure the Swedish PM ahead of the EU summit has sparked the outrage of fellow MPs.
Finance Minister Magdalena Andersson brutalised the Moderate Party for its comments as she suggested they ought to sort out their own municipalities before taking aim at ongoing negotiations with power-hungry bureaucrats in Brussels.
Hitting back at the criticism of the Social Democrat-led Government, Ms Andersson thundered: “She should do her homework. Namely, to set out demands to their own mayors who refuse to receive new arrivals.”
Having none of it, Ms Batra raged the leading party should reprimand their own mayors, before criticising theirs.
She said: “It is important that municipalities take responsibility back home in Sweden…..
The clash ahead of the summit comes as Sweden is on the verge of becoming a lawless state, with uncontrollable car fires spreading across the nations as police have placed more than 50 areas on a “no-go zone” list.
It is estimated three police officers are handing in their notices every day amid a huge surge in crime, violence and sexual assaults.
