Finnish EU scepticism

In a Finnish Broadcasting Company ( YLE ) radio programme today, Finnish President Tarja Halonen, who is standing for re-election, said; "Finnish citizens were disappointed with the European Union".

She added the union had not proved to be the provider of everyday security and employment as people had previously expected.

President Halonen was commenting on a recent YLE poll that suggests Finnish EU scepticism is on the rise.

Finland is due to take over the EU Presidency in July 2006

It will be interesting to see what the EU Propoganda Commisioner Margot Wallstrom has to say about this growing Eurosceptasim when she gets back off her holidays.
