A remarkable weekend

A remarkable weekend

While the whole Suomi was taking the steam in hot saunas and sipping beer with grilled sausage on a plate beside, the country eventually got a new Prime Minister. Wlecome Mari Kiviniemi. The top level of Finland is more and more an example of girl power: female President, female Prime Minister, female opposition leader (Urpilainen), not taking into account some key ministers who are also women 🙂

I would not call it good or bad, it’s just… interesting.

Matti Vanhanen left his post feeling  “frustrated” as the media say. His time as Prime Minister was really the time of trouble: his own sex scandals, corruption rumors, Lex Nokia, and on top of all that, lama (economic recession) and Ilkka Kanerva. Definitely not a pot of luck… that went to six people over the weekend (around 7 mln euro, which is an all time record in the lottery if I’m not mistaken). Somebody has to clean the place up for the future.
