DIRECTOR OF CENTRE FOR EUROPEAN POLICY STUDIES THREATENS FINLAND OVER PORTUGAL BAILOUT PACKAGE

The arrogance of the director is as obnoxious as it is condescending. Like Nigel Farage once asked in the EU House of Parliament in Brussels of EU Finance Commissioner, Olli Rehn and commission president,José Manuel Barroso,  “Just who in the hell do you people think you are?!” Get that folks? If you do not jump when they say jump, they’ll make things very difficult for you, until you get your mind right that is. KGS

EU researcher: Finland will pay a heavy price if they back out from assistance to Portugal.

Helsingin Sanomat: True Finns chairman Timo Soini arriving at a briefing told that the True Finns is not going to support the Portugal package.

Forming the Portuguese rescue package without Finland is quite possible, but Finland would probably pay a heavy political price for opting out, surmises the Brussels-EU Institute Director, Daniel Gros.

Centre for European Policy Studies, a leading institution Gros, Finland,’s portion in the Portugal sharepackage is so small that the package is easy to get together without them.

Technically and economically Finland’s withdrawal is possible, but politically the issue is much trickier. Such freeloading seriously erodes the EU’s unity, ” Gros said to the STT.

  1. Thanks for the post. Nobody wants to bailout Portugal. We already gave a lot of money to all the weak European countries. No money for Portugal, they should fix their economic situation themselves.

    1. Thanks POTB, it’s infuriating the level of arrogance of these jerks project. I would love for the EU to dissolve itself.

      1. So do I, but it’s very important to have Eurocritic parties. Finland has one, England has one. They are the strong voices. To me it’s important that Germany and France will get eurocriticial parties. They are the big players in the EU.

    Huh?

    I thought this was 2011, not Nineteen Eighty-Four.

    We in the north are ALREADY funding the freeloaders in the south! Now, I can somewhat accept that we give a hand up to the countries that used to be under the communist yoke – but countries like Portugal and Greece aren’t asking for a hand up – they’re asking for never ending charity!

    How could Finland be freeloading when they continue to net contribute substantial sums every year. For me (in Sweden) I estimate that my “share” of Sweden’s net contribution equals going out for a dinner and a movie once a month. Add to that my share of the foreign aid that Sweden pays out and it’d equal a dinner and a movie EVERY WEEK. Add to that my share of the cost of third world welfare immigration and I could enjoy a couple of extra beers with money to spare for a taxi to and from the dinner/movie! That’s how much this shit costs Swedish taxpayers. And that’s not even taking into account the additional tax-revenue and jobs that my dinner/movie/taxi-ride would generate!
