This is not a political blog, but I would like to comment on the results of today's Finnish parliamentary elections: 80% of the population did not vote for rightist nationalist populists. I sincerely hope the admittedly phenomenal rise of the True Finns party does not mean that for the next four years our politics will be dominated by the will of a minority that gathered only 20% by the votes, as now being propagated by the media. The vast majority of us still awant to remain a part of the international community.
I apologise for this incrusion of non-shipping related subject into this blog. Normal service will resume within the next new days.
