Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Finland has had a 24 hours cabinet crisis.

The True Finns - aka the ugly party - elected a new party leader, and the "let's not hide our racism" wing won. The other two parties in government declared that they could not work with the new party leader. Then the True Finns parliament group split down the middle and a new party was born - New Alternative. New Alternative has all the ministers that the True Finns had and will continue in government.

Remains to be seen is how the voters split. Brand name or old leader?
