True Finns will not be in government

True Finns, who did extraordinarily well in the Finnish election, will not be in the new coalition government as they do not go along with the other parties on the question of the Portuguese bail-out, the issue on which they campaigned and were elected.

Meanwhile, here is an article by Timo Soini, the True Finns' leader in its "uncensored" version unlike that published in the Wall Street Journal though I suspect the editing was done mostly for reasons of space.

  1. PR is the perfect device for insulating the political class from accountability. When you have a coalition every one can blame everyone else.
