An ironic Swedish election error!

In Sweden there is a General Election in less than a month, and the parties are papering the towns with their posters and their messages.

One party, the Liberals, made a hilarious error on one of their posters. The Liberals are for obligatory Swedish language tests as part of the integration process for foreigners into Sweden. Ironically, they released a poster with incorrect Swedish on it.

The poster in question reads ‘Mot extremism’ and has the smiling face of their leader gleaming out. The problem is that they meant ‘Emot extremism’, which means ‘against extremism’. ‘Mot’ is the Swedish word for ‘towards’. So the poster reads ‘Towards extremism’.

Oh, the irony!
