You still do not have to wait until 65 to retire in Finland

Ta-daaam. I thereby declare 11.3.2009 as Jutta Urpilainen‘s Day 😀

She’s just a year my senior and has been elected by the people of Vaasa. Originally from Kokkola.

I watched the Parliament session today. She simply tore Matti Vanhanen to pieces  in the pension system reform (raising pension age from 63 to 65 yo) issue. The government had to retreat, at least temporarily.

I will not be surprised if the next Parliament will be comprised of perussuomalaiset (“true Finns”) and demarit (SDP) only… because other parties took pains to look like they’ve never had a point at all 🙂
