Laura Huhtasaari was speaking the day after Brussels was accused of trying to “bully” Finland into ratifying its £650billion coronavirus recovery fund amid suggestions the Scandinavian country’s legislature might refuse to do so. With a two-thirds majority required, Finland’s Prime Minister Sanna Marin remains confident she will secure an agreement - but nevertheless sought advice from European Council’s legal team this week about what happens if it gets blocked.
Ms Huhtasaari, a member of the right-wing Finns party, is a staunch critic of the EU who believes her country should follow the UK’s example - and said the events of this week had reinforced her views still further.

“However, the project about the creation of a real sovereign EU state is still incomplete.”
