In a world awash with bad news day in and day out, this result brightens the day.

While lefties will undoubtedly be upset and claim Sweden has been hijacked by "extremists" or some such hokum, they've been in power for years and allowed or actively caused the problems that have seen them turfed from office. So they only have themselves to blame for losing.

Maybe some time in opposition will enable them to get a bit of perspective.

Ironic that commenters have to preemptively invoke the boogeyman spirit of "the left" and what they "will do" rather than actually engaging in reality and trying to respond to anything that is actually happening, because reality doesn't fit the narrative.
