How petty can you be, MTK

oviAccording to the Finnish news “The Finnish farmers’ union (MTK) welcomed the European Union’s new budget deal, but expressed a hope that Finnish politicians will now lobby for the retention of special subsidies paid to farmers in southern Finland.”

So the MTK thinks that if the EU reduces  special subsidies paid to the south it won’t soon reduce subsidies to the north? Does MTK think that the farmers in the south take those special subsidies because there is some kind of conspiracy and not need? And if we start reducing special subsidies why not to start from the Finnish fishermen? Or they belong in a different category, they have good reason for taken them or who gives a damn about the fishermen, they are not farmers? Not to mention who gives a damn for fellow farmers who go through the same pains!

Announcements like this show how petty some can be, how full of prejudice and stereotypes and how they can shame any kind of union!

Finn held over Easter Island ear

The authorities on Easter Island have detained a Finnish tourist on suspicion of trying to steal an earlobe of one of the world-famous moai stone statues.

 

Police on the Pacific island, which is an overseas territory of Chile, said a woman had seen him rip off the earlobe, which then fell and broke into pieces. Marko Kulju could face seven years in prison and a fine if convicted under laws protecting national monuments.

The statues of Polynesian ancestors are believed to be up to 1,000 years old.

The man wanted a souvenir for …Santa Claus!!!
