SWEDEN. The interrim government, led by Stefan Löfven, will sign the UN Migration Pact in Morocco hoping that more immigrants will benefit the country. Because it has worked so well so far!

SWEDEN. This is Jens Ganman and Magnus Carlsson satire movie Så att det blir rätt! about Sweden where they use the real voices of those who are depicted. It didn't take long for Youtube to take it down, but now it's back up. Unfortunately there's no subtitles, but perhaps that will change.
