6:11 min

A necessary compromise or a constitutional coup? The views of Swedish MEPs on the EU's proposed new long-term budget and Corona rescue package differ depending on who you ask.

Radio Sweden spoke to MEPs Erik Bergkvist of the Social Democrats, Tomas Tobé of the conservative Moderates and Charlie Weimer of the Sweden Democrats - the three biggest Swedish parties in the European Parliament - to hear their view of the agreement reached between EU's heads of state in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The European Parliament will itself be debating the issue Thursday.
