Political feed added

The former Swedish prime minister, Carl Bildt, has a blog at http://bildt.blogspot.com/ – I have just syndicated it as . 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.
