Now that we’ve had a look at the iPhone applications and billboards the different parties use to promote themselves, I think it’s time for some TV commercials! Translations are just below every short film.
The Social Democratic Party focuses on unemployment among youth:
“207 000 young persons are just waiting to enter the game. We cannot wait.”
So does the Moderate Party:
“Love at work. One of many reasons why more people should have a job. Nya Moderaterna (The New Moderate Party). Sweden’s only workers’ party.”
The Center Party is doing the same with this film:
- What’s going to come out of this little powerhouse?
- I’ve been thinking of letting him take courses at the Public Employment Service.
-When I grow up I want to be “utlasad”. (very hard to translate this very Swedish word – it basically means losing your job because you were the last one they hired…)
-Are you going to be a pro?
-No, I want to be on unemployment benefits, like my dad!
-What do you want to do when you’re done with school?
-Most of all, I’d like to go from one internship to another.
-One month to go, after that it’s unemployment measures for me!
Voice-over: Are we going back to a Sweden built on benefits, or shall we have real jobs in new companies? It’s up to you!
The Green Party is more into green topics:
“All around us there are people working for the environment. Now it’s time for a government that does the same. Modernize Sweden!”
When it comes to the Christian Democratic Party, it’s more of an animal theme…
“We want a more humane Sweden.”
So, what do you think – would any of these films make you give the party your vote?
