That’s how much money the new government is going to save.
I’m not saying that we don’t need to save money, we absolutely do. We also need to get increased economical growth, and there’s no question about it.
But Sipilä, Soini and Stubb, WHAT THE FUCK WERE YOU THINKING.
Right now we have HUGE savings coming up in health- and social-services, education, child-, study- and unemployment-support. And at the same time we’re adding money to the police, army and other defense construction. Now again, this wouldn’t be such a bad thing, but in an economical situation like this, where the economical growth should be the most important thing, huge stakings in this direction probably won’t help. If we were expecting a war, yes. But we probably aren’t, so these stakings are not investments. They’re just Finlands new way of showing that we don’t like or trust other countries, we don’t want any refugees, immigrants or others that don’t match the sterotypical Finn exactly.
It’s frustrating to watch. Luckily, there’s a summer coming up and a lot of great organizations to work with for a brighter future.
