Comment: Here is an interesting story on Kuopio-daily Savon Sanomat which published a poll Saturday about what people thought about Perussuomalaiset (PS) party’s MP Jussi Halla-aho’s suggestion that Greece should have a military junta to quell protests in that country.
According to the result of the poll by Taloustutkimus, the vast majority considered Halla-aho’s comments on Greece as inappropriate as well as 71% of PS members. Twelve percent considered the two-week suspension from the party as too harsh.
Halla-aho and his PS cronies are becoming a big headache for the party’s leader, Timo Soini. A poll by television station Nelonen revealed that if Halla-aho splintered from the PS his party would be as popular as the Swedish People’s Party with 4%.
Halla-aho and Soini have denied that there are two factions in the party and that they are close to splintering.
