Finnish media brick walls the statement as usual.
Within a normal representative democracy, with all the checks and balances in working order, political bureaucratic hacks like Ollie Rehn would have lost their jobs ages ago. With a professional media doing its job, instead of being a cheerleader for these big government institutions, Rehn’s actions would have been thoroughly investigated from all the different angles, and action taken.
Yet year after year, Ollie Rehn sits in his commission without any serious challenges or investigative questions from the media, nor from the domestic political establishment. Here in Finland, what’s more important is that it’s a Finn who has been given a high profile commission, not what he’s been doing with it.
It infuriates me to no end that moments such as this one captured in the video below that took place in the EU parliament, gets absolutely no mention whatsoever in the Finnish media. It’s as if it never occurred if the Finnish fake media doesn’t report it. That speaks greatly of their disgusting cowardly self censorship.
