A new section of the footage filmed by top Sweden Democrat politicians on a night out has been published by newspaper Expressen, showing the three men waving metal pipes around following an argument on the street. One of the men in the film, the party's law and order spokesman, Kent Ekeroth, has also decided to take a timeout from politics for the next week. This comes a day after economics spokesman Erik Almkvist was forced to leave his job. Radio Sweden spoke to Pontus Mattsson, Swedish Radio's political commentator and author of a book on the Sweden Democrats.
