Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Of course, some of the more ideological pure Swedish leftwingers have an automatic response: that all privatizations by definition are bad. To me, that's just as absurd a view as the idea that all privatizations are good. Some things belong in the public sphere while some belong in the private. An astounding number of Swedish leftists held the in my mind absurd view that it was a bad idea to sell Absolut Vodka for a p/e ratio of 25-35 (or whatever it was in the summer of 2008. If you believe that was a bad idea, I suppose you might believe anything.
