Finnish far right, True Finns MP wants Greece to have a junta that can crush harshly strikes and riots

Wednesday, 14 September 2011
Finnish MP Jussi Halla-aho from the far right party, True Finns has called for harsh action against strikes in Greece.

"Right now, Greece would have a military junta, which would not have to worry about voter support and which could crush demonstrators and strikers with tanks," said Halla-aho on his Facebook page on Wednesday.

The words aroused quickly much attention in Finland, where Halla-aho leads the Parliamentary Management Committee.
According to Halla-aho democracy has ineffective action on the way the Greeks behave and strong man is required to keep the country calm and resolve their financial crisis in silence.

"The simple truth is that democracy (which is equal to choice) prevents any form of political government in Greece to take the difficult and right steps that really would an impact on Greece's bankruptcy finished economy," said Member of Parliament.

The far right party, True Finns emerged as a talkative after the recent polls in Finland in which a good sector of the Finnish voters supported the party’s far right views and gave it 19.1 percent of the votes in parliamentary elections.
This has caused an outcry in Finland and before too long Halla-Aho was forced to repent.

According reports, the Member of Parliament removed the comments on his Facebook page and now writes that he really did not want a military junta in Greece. The idea was rather to say that it is difficult to push through difficult issues in a democracy.
He admits that he made bad sense of judgement by posting comments.

However, knives are still drawn against Halla-Aho and the leader of the True Finns party, Timo Soini, has demanded the temporary expulsion of the controversial MP Jussi Halla-aho from the party's parliamentary group. Soini told Finnish news network, YLE that he had lost trust in Halla-Aho's current behaviour.
