Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

There is some extra Finnish interest this time round, in that Maria Wetterstrand's husband is Ville Niinistö, who is a Green MP (and vice-chair of the party) and member of Åbo city council.

He is also the nephew of Sauli Niinistö, current speaker of Finnish Eduskunta, former Minister of Finance and a shoo-in for President (though he has repeatedly excluded himself). In the fairly clean political world of Finland (if there is any money sloshing around it's chump change), Sauli Niinistö is squeaky clean and highly competent. While Ville is green and Sauli is blue, I'd be interested to know how much influence the uncle has had.

You can't be me, I'm taken
