Welfare Profiteering?

Swedish Social Democrat leader Stefan Löfven and the Green Party (Miljöpartiet) never promised to bring Vänsterpartiet (the Left Party) into government, but they all collaborated in opposition prior to this last election day. Now that the Moderate Alliance is defeated, Löfven and the Greenies have fully rejected the Left, which attracted 5.7% or 355,576 votes. Vänsterpartiet's main platform criticized social welfare profiteering as supported by more mainstream parties.

With a hobbled minority government, the crafty Social Democrats & Greens should have the Left inside their tent pissing out, rather than outside pissing in.

Löfven's government, starting badly, may not last long...
