In social issues, we are more left... but in the so-called value orientation, we are conservative
Timo Soini, The Finns leader
HELSINKI: Finland’s rising eurosceptic party says that it combines left-wing economic policies with conservative social values.
The Finns, the nationalist, ultra-conservative party of Finland, has 39 MPs, only five fewer than the largest group in the country’s parliament, the National Coalition Party.
Timo Soini, leader of The Finns, told Exaro: “The National Coalition is a conservative right-wing party, as are the Christian Democrats, as are the Tories in Britain. We are left from that, not right from that.”
