Yeah, we have Swedes here as well, and some of them are as bat crazy as their co-linguists in Sweden.
What’s with these parties naming themselves like they’re in the 1920’s and 30’s in the Soviet Block? ”People’s Party”, really? Anyways, they couldn’t care less that there is already a systemic +200 000 unemployed (you know, real Finnish people), all due to top down statist policies. Now these geniuses want to add to that list even more people, who are wholly unemployable.
VN: IDs for asylum seekers?
Västra Nyland, the Swedish-language paper of Western Uusimaa, meanwhile reports on a visit by Swedish People’s Party (SPP) parliamentarians to an asylum seekers’ reception centre in Evitskog, Kirkkonummi. Former justice minister Anna-Maja Henriksson, ex-defence minister Carl Haglund and others met with some of the 300 residents, mostly Iraqi and Afghan men, on Tuesday. The politicians were hosted by the centre’s director, local Finns Party politician Pekka M. Sinisalo. Afterwards the SPP parliamentary group called for all asylum seekers to be issued with official identity cards. This would allow them to open bank accounts and therefore to work, it said.
Meanwhile VN notes that Kirkkonummi is the only municipality in Western Uusimaa that is growing. Last year Hanko, Raseborg, Ingå, Siuntio and Lohja all posted population declines, according to new figures from Statistics Finland. Kirkkonummi’s population meanwhile edged close to 39,000. VN quotes the municipal director as saying most of the growth comes from families with children moving from Espoo and Helsinki in search of more living space.
