"I hate everything [that's] genuinely typically Swedish." (in the Swedish newspaper Expressen, July 26, 2002.) This was actually written by Linda Skugge, not Mona Sahlin. The quote and the reference are correct, but not the person.

I see that the quote about immigrants having a culture and Swedes having silly things is listed as unsourced. This blog post contains scans of an article that looks awfully authentic to me. Could someone explain why the quote was moved to the unsourced section previously?


  • The unemployment strikes hardest and most clearly those who don't have a job.
    • As minister of sustainable development (samhällsbyggnadsminister).
  • "In Sweden, there is a bunch of values that you have to accept. You may like it or not, but you don´t have a choice. If people withdraw from society to avoid adapting, we need to find a way to force Swedish values on them".
    • (M. Sahlin, Dagens Nyheter, 8/6-2001)"
