The Perussuomalaiset plan to sack MP Hirvisaari from the party

Inviting Seppo Lehto to parliament, where a picture of him making a Nazi salute, was the last straw for Perussuomalaiset(PS) chairman Timo Soini, who was quoted as saying on MTV3 that PS MP James Hirvisaari will be sacked from the party.

The decision to expel Hirvisaari was made by the five-member working committee of the PS governing board.

PS party secretary, Riikka Slunga-Poutsalo, said that Hirvisaari had hurt the party’s credibility and therefore would be expelled, writes Helsingin Sanomat.

Following Hirvisaari’s rocky and controversial political career, where he doesn’t hide his far-right credentials, Migrant Tales asked in July when the PS would sack the MP, who was convicted for ethnic agitation.

Even if this is a step in the right direction, it’s too little too late.

Hirvisaari has not only damaged the credibility of Finland’s legislature, but spread hatred and suspicion of immigrants and minorities living in this country.

He will not be missed.

    Don’t these people claim to be champions of free speech?

    Why the sudden capitulation to élitist notions of political correctness?

    Has this proudly outspoken party suddenly lost its cojones?

    How many will now join Hirvisaari in forming a new party to stand up for the values of right thinking white Finns?

    Or are they merely looking after their own interests, just like all the rest?
