Unpaid TV licence fells Swedish politician

And Pirates fail to impress at the polls

Security for virtualized datacentres

Two high profile Swedish ministers have resigned from office over allegations of tax evasion, and bizarrely, failure to pay their TV licences.

Swedish Culture Minister Cecilia Stego Chilo resigned on Monday, following Trade Minister Maria Borelius's resignation last week. The resignations come just days after the new four-party government took office.

Borelius stepped down amid allegations of tax evasion, while Minister Chilo was accused of having not paid her TV licence for 16 years.

In related news, the Pirate Party, running on a pledge to reform copyright law and abolish the patent system, didn't do as well as it had hoped in the Swedish elections, managing to poll less than one per cent of the popular vote. ®
