A Swedish far-right party is expected to soar in popularity on the back of a wave of anti-immigrant feeling ahead of this week’s general election.

Sunday’s vote will be the first since the nation of 10 million accepted 163,000 migrants in 2015 – the largest number relative to the total population of any European state during the massive migrant influx into Europe that year.

Support for the once-fringe Sweden Democrats party has swollen to around 20 per cent – up from the 13 per cent it won in 2014.

Part of that success reflects disillusionment with the governing coalition between the Social Democrats and the Green Party, which has run the country for the past four years.

The coalition’s earlier open-door policies toward migrants are now widely denounced.

    ATTENTION ALL IM, ( INDEPENDENT MEDIA. ) THIS IS COMING HERE. DON’T BE IGNORANT PANSY MILK TOASTS. WE EITHER NEED TO DEPORT ABOUT 40 MILLION PEOPLE … OR BALKANIZE. UNITE EVERYONE INTO 4 “REPUBLICS” ONE FOR EACH GROUP.
