Political feed added

The former Swedish prime minister, Carl Bildt, has a blog at http://bildt.blogspot.com/ - I have just syndicated it as carlbildt. I don't have a view on his impact on Swedish politics (except that I suspect my Swedish readers may not be big fans of his) but I think his international impact, especially in the Balkans, has been pretty positive.

I don't believe that there is any other political figure of equivalent seniority from any country who takes it as seriously as Bildt does. Margot Wallström, Vice-President of the European Commission, and (like Bildt) a Swede, though from a different political party, blogs too - but unfortunately it is a) anodyne and b) infested by trolling comments from British Eurosceptics. Her colleague Vladimir Špidla, also like Bildt a former prime minister (but Czech rather than Swedish) also has one, featuring seven whole entries since last November. Like Bildt, he has wisely disallowed comments. I will not bother syndicating either for livejournal readers (though don't let me stop you).

Edited to add - Hmm, though I thought it was me that had syndicated it, turns out someone else already got there! Doesn't affect the inforamtion above anyway.

Yeah, um, someone else already got there would appear to have been me, he wrote some good stuff on an election somewhere (probably German) so I syndicated it.

I gave up reading Wallstrom, the blog is dull, the comments awful.
