Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Mona Sahlin lost the parliament election a year ago, and was then forced to resign making her the second Swedish soc-dem party leader ever not to become party leader prime minister.

By the way, I agree that Juholt got a good start, but he waffled badly on Libya and looked like he knew nothing about defence and security policy, and even worse, he kept changing his mind and message all the time. This is especially noteworthy as he's been the chairman or vice chairman of the parliamentary committee on defense for the last 10 or 15 years, so this is the one thing he really should be good at. However, given the fact that the Swedish armed forces have self-destructed in the last 10-15 years, maybe one shouldn't be surprised at Juholts ineptitude. He's after all been the main guy in parliament overseeing the self-destruction.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
