The media always labels anti-immigration groups as “far-right”, which doesn’t appear to be accurate.

There needs to be balance. immigrants should assimilate to the basic principles of their new country, but they can still retain some parts of their culture.

In Sweden, an influx of 163,000 asylum seekers in 2015 - the most in Europe in relation to the country's population of 10 million - has polarised voters and fractured the political consensus.

Of course it has.

Sensible immigration policies are the best way to stop the rise of far right parties. Polls across Europe show majorities of electorates wanting less immigration. If the leaders don’t listen, it will turn ugly.

You can’t just accept immigrants without assimilation infrastructure. Immigration is fine, I’m one, but I prepared first.

Congratulations Sweden! Beginning to see sense at last.
