“The reactions to the election gains of Timo Soini’s True Finns (Perussuomalaiset) in Sunday’s general election in Finland have been full of earthquake metaphors. “A tremor hit the EU” is the way the BBC’s Gavin Hewitt describes it. If that is so, then this was only the latest in a series of quakes to hit European countries, for few countries seem to have been immune to the rise of populist nationalism.”

@jonworth Worse than nuts. I heard him speak on this in NRW in 2019 - he views Brexit as a selfish act akin to Trump's efforts at undermining the EU.
And unlike his challenger Röttgen he didn’t make you look a fool on German TV, Greg. So there’s that as a plus I suppose?
Many congratulations @ArminLaschet on his election as CDU Leader!
Have met him in both Düsseldorf and Berlin, and he is a good friend of the U.K.
So many links between his state where he is PM, North Rhine Westphalia & U.K., so he knows us well!
Ich gratuliere! 🎉
