Finnish government coalition collapsed

Finnish government coalition collapsed due to the new far right leadership of the Finns party. This was the first time I've seen the conservatives being concerned with human rights. But better late than never...

After reading https://svenska.yle.fi/artikel/2017/06/13/ett-dygn-av-regeringskris-detta-har-hant I have to wonder, is Niinistö a super common Finnish name, or only a super common name among politicians? :-)

One President, one party chairman and one MP. Any relation? Would be interesting, as I think all three are in different parties.

Yes, a lot of people have commented on that :-) I guess it's a relatively common name, but at least Ville (Green party leader) is the nephew of Sauli (the president). The third one (Jussi, minister an MP of Finns party) isn't related to the others AFAIK :-)

And now I double-checked. President Sauli is in the Coalition Party.

Ville was once married to the Swedish Green Party once-chairperson Maria Wetterstrand! Did not know that either.

Yes, I thought about mentioning that fact too. It's a small world :-)
