    The Netherland times???

    Really?
    That can’t be real.
    The Washington Post has used the Netherland Times as a source:

    You... really are astoundingly, Metal-Brain-level ignorant about the Netherlands. So is the WP "journalist" - probably more correctly, "intern" - who wrote that "article".

    Really. Come on. You should do better.

    Who to believe? A trained reporter vetted by a globally-respected news organization...or a what's-his-face wishing he could post like Zahlanzi.

    Decisions, decisions.

    Well, fukk me sideways with a barge pole… the Netherland Times does actually exist.

    https://nltimes.nl/top-stories

    And what’s more, at a quick glance it seems to be quite objective.

    How strange.
    For Vivify’s sake, what triggered me was the name. The country is called “The Netherlands”. Plural.
    So any news page would normally be called the same. To drop the S is absurd.

    It would be like calling a Scottish news site: “The Cotland Times”.

    It seems to be called the NL Times, officially.

    On their site they do refer to it as the Netherland Times.

    Sort of like the Wahington Post…

    See above
    All I see is just another one of your assertions/inferences, not a “statistic” which supports either your “all” or your “most”.

    What Euro country hasn't started moving right?
    Ahh so you are now going to hide your “all” and your “most” behind some jazz handed obfuscation about nations rather than people.

    Make your mind up then… if it is “most” of Europe, then YOU tell me what one’s are not included in your “most” assertion?

    Don't talk about things you know nothing about.

    Brexit isn't right-wing. It's extremist. It's just that the main Labour party in England is centre-right, and therefore Remain; while the Tories are all far-right, and some of Labour are exceptionalist.
    Lol.

    Opinion based on pinholed far left perspective is a helluva thing.

    Anti-immigrant nationalism is right-wing.

    If brexit is to defined by immigration alone, which you seem determined to do, for obvious reasons, then at least get it right.

    Brexit was about tightening border control to control immigration.

    But you slur away…

    The OP wasn't about individuals it about the Swedish government, one of many European governments where right-wingers are starting to take control. This is a rising trend in Europe.

    It's well-known that racism and nationalism was a significant driving force behind Brexit. The fact that it wasn't the only factor for leaving doesn't change this.

    You have a point, it's like titling something "The United State".

    I think leaving out the "S" gives the title more of a punch. Try saying "Netherlands Times", it's a bit awkward....doesn't flow as well. Maybe two words back-to-back with "S" sounds at the end just don't go well.
