The news narrative on the BBC all last week was about support for the far-right party growing and much speculation about the party getting 20-25% share of the vote. On Friday (I think) there was a kick back from Swedish journalists saying the situation in their country is being misrepresented. A Swedish hack was interviewed on Today on Friday and said there is some support but said the actual result will be less than being touted in the UK. He was right and the BBC political reporters were wrong but it's still being reported as 'significant gains'.

You can't shift an agenda it seems.
Indeed their morning Sweden item featured a SD Activist - given full reign to tell us how oppressed she was.
Balanced by a student of politics, constantly batting away the presenter's assertion that "You'll have to listen to them now".

Even BBC World Service has been doubling down on the bollocks today. This is as frustrating as it is unfathomable. They are usually far, far better than this.
