Meanwhile the country burns and dies.

The survey by Novus for broadcaster TV4, published on Tuesday, suggests that 19.4 percent of Swedish voters now support the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats. The party mainly sees support growing among labour union members and people in northern Sweden, according to the pollsters.

The largest party in the opposition, the Moderates, scored 23.3 percent in the survey, down by 1.7 percentage points since June. The centre-right party is mainly losing support among its male base, who are instead turning to the Sweden Democrats, the Liberals, and the ruling Social Democrats.

Among its colleagues in the centre-right Alliance opposition, the Liberal party and the Centre party are gaining, while the poll suggests that the Christian Democrats would lose out on a seat in parliament if an election was held today (scoring only 3.3 percent – less than the required 4 percent threshold).
