I must admit to once receiving a parking ticket, so probably not far from being one of these...

Citizensm1th is right though Fin, as an immigrant yourself you need to be aware of living in glass houses and all that.

I mean, you've only got to consider all those inner-city areas we're large swathes of Finnish people have moved in and are busily conducting gang-warfare, grenade attacks and pushing the rape count to the highest level the countries ever seen.

Honestly, you shouldn't be allowed an opinion.

Is one allowed to mention the Finnish Kaale? For the uninitiated, not a mispelt green leafy vegetable but roughly the Finnish equivalent of the All Ireland Caravan Club contingent, though not sure about attitude to dags and tarmac. Nasty feckers though, and can hide a lot of shoplifted goods under those special skirts.

Nope hehe

Well if we must talk about the Finnish mustalaiset, they are afraid of dags and I can't ever recall seeing them doing any tarmacking, they have a fondness for horses and old Mercs though.

Generally they are a nuisance and they won't think twice about robbing you and may even threaten you with a knife while stealing your stuff.
But, they are not gang shooters or gang rapists, they don't blow st up or riot, quite the opposite, they keep a low profile (apart from how they dress) and are very friendly and polite (until they steal all your stuff).

Fun fact about the Kale people, in the 17th century they were deported from the western part of Sweden to the eastern part, later to be known as Finland. The reason why they came to Sweden was that they were deported England and Scotland.

The Kale, Finnish or Welsh, are Romani.

Unlike Irish Travellers, they are not Finns or Welsh who, er, travel.

That's correct, there are some 15,000 of them seemingly floating back and forth between Finland and Sweden.

In Finland they are called mustalaiset or roomalaiset, in Sweden they are called romer, resande folket or zigenare.

I didn't know they can be found in Wales too.

Re the bold text, wiki gives the reason they left England/Scotland all those years ago. They must have been doing some bad stuff in England/Scotland to have had a "hang on sight" order against them for over a hundred years! :

From Wiki: "The original Finnish Kale were Romanisael who came to Finland via Sweden after being deported from Sweden in the 17th century. The ancestors of Finnish, Swedish and Norwegian Romani are English and Scottish Romani, who were deported from the kingdoms of Scotland and England. In 1637, all Romani groups were declared outlaws who could be hanged without trial; this practice was discontinued in 1748."

There's a Scottish folk song called MacPherson's Rant composed by a half-gypsy the week he was due to be executed for, among other things, being an "Egyptian"..

He's a famous case because he was the illigitimate son of a local Laird and thus he had access to a level of education and privelege. After his father died he ended living a life of cattle theft, but evaded capture until walking into an ambush at a market.

He composed his lament and offered his fiddle to anyone who would play it at his funeral. When noone came forward, fearing being associated with him, he smashed the fiddle and declared that noone would play it. The pieces were collected by his fathers clan and are still held in a clan museum.

His writing was reworked by Robert Burns and thus has survived to this day as a folk song.

The Swedish foreign minister straightening out a few questionmarks about the Swedish covid-19 strategy.

”I’m the minister of foreign affairs, I don’t know if we have the right science of herd immunity or whatever.”


Once the criticism started rolling in here in Sweden, she tries to turn it into ¨it's because I am a woman.¨



I don't know if I should laugh or cry...
