Opening of Parliament, Riksdagen 2003-2018

www.expressen.se

Dämpat öppnande av riksdagen

Det var mer svartklätt och allvarstyngt än vanligt vid riksdagens högtidliga öppnande på tisdagen.
Både kung Carl Gustaf och statsminister Göran Persson anknöt i sina tal till mordet på Anna Lindh:
- Sverige har sorg, vi har förlorat vår utrikesminister och en medmänniska, var kungens första ord.

Plenisalen var fullsatt då talman Björn von Sydow trädde in tillsammans med kungen, drottning Silvia, prinsessan Lilian samt prinsessan Madeleine, som stundom tittade fram under en kvarnhjulshatt - den enda kläddetalj som stack ut under årets dämpade ceremoni.
För musiken svarade denna gång Visby Brass som spelade såväl en brudmarsch som Att angöra en brygga - denna dag lät melodin mer vemodig än komiskt underfundig.
På åhörarläktarens första bänk lyssnade det politiska Veteransverige: Förre moderatledaren Carl Bildt bytte ord med äldste vpk-ledaren C H Hermansson. Förre miljöspråkröret Birger Schlaug sitter numera på läktarplats, och dit upp har också tidigare talmannen Birgitta Dahl flyttat liksom vice talmannen Anders Björck - numera landshövding i Uppsala.

Persson lovar fler poliser
Kungen passade i sitt tal på att tacka för uppskattande ord under måndagens lunch då han firade sina 30 år på tronen.
Även statsminister Göran Persson anknöt i sin 25 minuter långa uppläsning av regeringsförklaringen till läget för 30 år sedan. Vid den tiden snickrade man ihop den nya svenska regeringsformen som berövade kungen all formell makt och lade tonvikten vid riksdagen.
Nu aviserade Persson en översyn av "demokratins spelregler". Partierna inbjöds att medverka. Statsministern återkom också gång på gång till nejsegern i EMU-folkomröstningen i söndags. Långt ifrån att närma sig nejsidan upprepade han jakampanjens varningar för negativa verkningar. Men han skulle slåss för att motverka dem.
Persson lovade också fler poliser och vädjade om förståelse för att det kan vara tungt och knepigt att vara politiker. Riksdagsledamöter nickade instämmande då han citerade ur en dikt att 70-talets jordbruksminister Svante Lundkvist:
Politiker, dessa av somliga smått föraktade varelser, flitiga som bin strävar de med små och stora problem i människors gemenskap.

Trängselmingel i marmorhallen
Sedan bröt stora trängselminglet ut i marmorhallen, de gamla kamrarnas korridorer och den festsal som kallas sammanbindningsbanan. Så har det gått till i 20 år sedan riksdagen flyttade hem efter tolv års provisorium vid Sergels torg. Den gången, 1983, försökte fotograferna förgäves plåta statsminister Olof Palme tittandes ut genom fönstret. På Norrbro ringlade nämligen den jättelika demonstrationen mot löntagarfonderna fram.

Why shouldn´t she? Maybe she´s thinking about Anna Lindh..?

That could be one reason .... I was thinking more along the line of the implications of a wicked rumor reported in the press about a resemblance ....

It must be a little unsettling to have to perform public duties in the wake of Anna Lindh's assasination.

What's this "wicked rumour"?

That guy in a blue tie and shades behind the King looks like security. Wouldn't want to tangle with him.

Not a problem, Julia! I am happy to be doing it. Truth be told, I actually find it kind of de-stressing, espescially after the long day I had at work today!

Some magazines wrote that the suspected murderer, "the NK man" looks alot like Victorias boyfriend Daniel. Some people called the police and said so to. But I´m sure the police doesn´t listen to stupid things like that...
And today expressen writes that the man the police arrested yesterday is a "friend of Madeleine".
crazy!!

The King's Speech

His Majesty The King’s speech at the Opening of Parliament 2004 (NB: my translation of his speech, held in Swedish)

Mr Speaker, Honoured Members of Parliament,

Today the Parliament gathers again and we are reminded that our short Nordic summer is coming to an end. Once again we can look forward to an autumn full of colour and with a high and clear air.

It is my hope that all of you during the summer have had at least some time for rest and reflection, which has filled you with energy and inclination to bring on all the tasks that await. Maybe you have also been inspired by our good athletes, who have shown both great individual performances and great team spirit during the Olympic Games in Athens.

I would like to present greeting from the two countries that The Queen and I have recently visited, Olympia’s Greece and the tales’ Iceland. It is two countries with a long and learned history of how democracy is built, kept and developed.

In these countries, we have been reminded of the importance to manage what we have been trusted with and the importance to pass it on to coming generations.

A new Session of the Parliament takes its beginning. The decisions that you will take will affect the conditions for many citizens, now and in the future. It makes another foundation in our valuable society.

Many issues that surround the nations and the citizen’s security, education, work, the health care sector, environment and international cooperation will fill your daily work. It is all of our hope that, when this Session is ended, more progress, for joy and benefit of many people, can be presented.

Already at this point, we know that 2004 will make history as the year when the European Union was enlarged with many free, democratic countries. During the State Visit to Slovenia in June, The Queen and I could see many proofs for the general interest in the union, and how dependent we are of each other across all borders.

The enlargement also emphasizes the importance of every country carrying out its part in the work of settling all conflicts, protecting the environment and emphasizes all people’s equal value. These aspirations can be carried out in many different ways, by cooperation between countries or by peoples or organisations non-profit work. The immense tragedy that the world recently witnessed in the Russian city Beslan, once again shows proof of the importance of never becoming tired of the work for mutual respect and understanding between population and individuals. Everyone must take a responsibility in this important work.

The Swedish people have given you all its trust in forming the terms of our future society. I wish you all great wisdom and endurance in the managing of this democratic responsibility.

With these words, I hereby declare the 2005/2005 Session of the Parliament open.
