I would be more sympathetic with those parties in being against this bank, if they were against big government statism in general.
The central government is the single most abuser of public funds, and the cronyism that results from its close relationship with welfare (fake) capitalists dwarfs private funds set in offshore accounts. It’s the height of hypocrisy for politicians to point fingers at those holding offshore accounts, when they themselves are, and the system that they run, are far more corrupt.
According to party secretary Riikka Slunga-Poutsalo she has been tasked with finding another Finnish bank to take over Finns Party accounts. The move has been prompted by links to tax haven services revealed in the so-called Panama Papers.
Previously, the Social Democratic Party and the Left Alliance announced they have withdrawn their business from Nordea.
“We’ve had this discussion several times, that we want to support Finnish banking,” Slunga-Poutsalo says. “Now with the recent Panama Papers scandal we felt that the time was ripe for a change. I and our financial chief have been given full powers to seek a suitable bank.”
