Europe: Driving on the Right - Scandinavia


Chris Bowlby investigates how the far right is influencing mainstream European politics. He travels to Scandinavia where anti-immigration parties are increasingly powerful. The Danish People's Party has cleverly used its hold on the balance of power to introduce harsh measures. And the Sweden Democrats have rapidly increased their share of the vote, claiming that public services are being swamped by immigrants. Chris analyses the consequences for centrist parties in both countries. Producer: Daniel Tetlow.
