UPDATE: UK’s UKIP send its congrats to Soini and the True Finns:
UKIP Take Cheer from Victory of True Finns
It is fair to say that UKIP are ecstatic that their Finnish sister party have surged in Finland. Their tough on immigration, tough on the EU policies have seen the 16-year-old party surge from 4.1% of the vote in the last parliamentary election to 19.4%, tonight, taking their parliamentary representation from 5 to 39 MPs. They have out-polled the Social Democrats and overnight smashed the Finnish pro-EU consensus. No wonder Nigel Farage is smiling…
