What's the idea behind this template? The Swedish speaker in Finland, Estonia and Ukraine are not Swedes any more than people in the US or Australia are English - and I doubt they would fit in an "English Diaspora". I suggest this template be removed. JdeJ (talk) 16:42, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Your arguments are completely wrong. Genetical studies have shown that Finland Swedes are generally genetically identical to Mainland Swedes, and are different from the Finns.
