Comment: Here is an interesting short BBC video on the “obscure euroskeptic” True Finns party. The reporter tries to find out who are the “True Finns.”
The 7:23-minute video gets more critical at the end.
In April Finnish nationalist party True Finns, which is anti-immigration and staunchly Euro-sceptic, saw a dramatic surge in support in the country’s general election. The party quadrupled its share of the vote to win 39 seats in the 200-member parliament.
Newsnight’s David Grossman went to meet the group’s leader Timo Soini to find out more about them and what they represent.
