Gordon Brown Seeks Advice from Sweden
British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Sweden’s Opposition leader Mona Sahlin have met in Downing Street to discuss election strategies for their social democratic parties.
Sahlin told Swedish News Agency TT afterwards, Britain’s Labour party faces similar problems as Sweden’s Social Democrats did a year ago.
Sahlin said she told Brown it was not sufficient to outline previous achievements to the voters. You also have to present your plans for the future. Otherwise you are likely to loose the election – that’s why Sweden’s Social Democrats were defeated last year, Sahlin added.
Both party leaders agreed on establishing cooperation on education policies.
