NOT A COMPLETE VICTORY BUT FINNISH ELECTION RESULTS CERTAINLY ENCOURAGING UPDATE: PERHAPS THE TORIES CAUGHT THE FINNISH FLU!

It looks like the True Finns surged to just over 19 percent of the vote, just over a percent behind the two leading parties, the conservative Kokoomus party (20.4%) and the Social Democrat Party (19.1%).  This Finnish blogger suggests that the True Finns may be asked to join the ruling coalition:

The big news of the night is that the True Finns have performed at the top end of expectations, winning over 19% of votes. A record-breaking 15 percent increase on their performance in the last election. Timo Soini’s populists will certainly be invited to government formation negotiations. Will they even be in government?

But alas, Soini will probably not be the first euroskeptic PM elected.  We’ll see…

This is ConservativeHome’s take on the election success of True Finns party.  The short bulletin is fair but I think the comments are somewhat revealing.  Rank and file Tories ought to be looking backward at UKIP.  Of course I hope the Finnish Flu is a pandemic throughout Europe!

    Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
