Finland election polls: Eurosceptics on course to make huge gains spelling trouble for EU

The 2021 Finnish municipal elections are due to be held on June 13, 2021. Finland’s municipal elections were originally scheduled to take place in April, but were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to one of the latest polls, the right-wing Finns Party could more than double its vote share compared to the party’s previous election performance.

The last municipal elections held in Finland took place in 2017.

The National Coalition Party won the most votes of any party, with 20.7 percent of the vote.

The Social Democratic Party won 19.4 percent of the vote, while the Centre Party of Finland gained 17.5 percent.

The Green League Party won 12.5 percent of the vote in the last elections, while the Finns Party won only 8.8 percent of the vote.

As per the Helsinki Times, Tuomo Turja, the research director at Taloustutkimus, told YLE: “The Finns Party’s challenge is not so much the other parties, but whether it can get its own supporters to the polling stations.”

The Social Democratic Party, headed by Finland’s Prime Minister, Sanna Marin, are set to get 17 percent of the vote according to the poll.

But the right-wing opposition party, the National Coalition, appeared to have the lead over all rivals in the poll.

The National Coalition could win as much as 19.6 percent of the vote according to the poll, almost a fifth of the vote.

According to the Helsinki Times, Elina Kestilä-Kekkonen, an associate professor of political science at Tampere University, told YLE: “It shows the European trend where confidence in the powers to be was exceptionally high during the coronavirus pandemic.

“Now that the epidemic is losing momentum, the SDP has to step before the public also in regards to other issues.”

Politico reported that a party ad campaign was recently pulled for discrimination, by suggesting immigrants can jump the public housing queue in Finland’s capital of Helsinki.

He said: “There is no influence in being quiet and nodding.”

After the UK’s exit from the EU in recent years, there have been growing rumblings of anti-EU sentiment elsewhere in Europe.

Anti-EU parties in places like Sweden and Estonia have gained momentum recently.

If momentum continues to grow, other countries could potentially opt to leave the EU behind in the future.

Tori Spelling, 47, Rocks Red Bikini While In Palm Springs With Husband Dean McDermott & Their 5 Kids

Tori Spelling took to Instagram to share a cute video of her and her 12-year-old daughter Stella having fun as they rocked the same bikini in different colors.

Tori Spelling[1], 47, showed off her figure during a family outing in Palm Springs, CA and appeared to be having a blast. The actress wore a red bikini that had one strap during the thrilling vacation and had her blonde locks in two braids as she was photographed walking alongside her husband Dean McDermott[2], 54, and their five kids[3], Liam, 14, Stella, 12, Hattie, 9, Finn, 8, and Beau, 4. They were all hanging out by the pool at the Westin Mission Hills resort in Rancho Mirage and appeared to have a great time while soaking up the sun.

Tori took to Instagram on Apr. 11 to share a funny video of her and her daughter Stella[4] sharing an entertaining moment. In the clip, the doting mom walks up to her mini-me, who was in a pink swimsuit, and talks about how they’re “twinning” because they’re wearing matching bikinis. Stella then gives a mortified look to the camera and pretends to scream before Tori then looks around and runs.

“You’re wonderful,” one of Tori’s followers responded to the cheeky video. “That’s awesome,” a second wrote while a third called the clip “hilarious.” Many more shared laughing emojis.

Before Tori’s latest vacation and video, she got attention for joking that she was pregnant with her sixth child on April Fool’s Day. After posting a photo of herself holding her stomach with the caption, “No. 6”, she later revealed she wasn’t pregnant and even though she received backlash for the joke, she admitted she did it because she wanted to “turn tables” on the press, who “create wild and hurtful stories” about her and her body.

“Every week press and magazine outlets ask if I’m pregnant. To set the record straight, I am not. The fact is, after my fifth baby, my body didn’t bounce back like it had before. That’s when the constant questions of ‘yet another’ pregnancy first began,” she wrote in an Instagram message[5]. “Unless you’re in the public eye, it’s hard to understand what it feels like to be body shamed so publicly.”

“My post was simply to turn the tables on for once on the press. They constantly create wild and often hurtful stories about me, my body and my family,” she continued. “For those of you that are hurt, I hear you. I love you. I welcome your stories and I will try my best to be there and support you. Please accept this as a virtual hug to my entire community.”

Tori Spelling, 47, Teased That She Was Pregnant With Baby No. 6 With Bump Pic & Fans Were Confused

Tori Spelling has fans totally perplexed, posting a photo showing her ‘baby belly’ and saying she was expecting her sixth child, despite it being April Fool’s Day.

April Fool’s Day is NOT the time to announce a pregnancy[1]. For Tori Spelling[2], the 47-year-old left fans wondering if she was actually expecting baby number six[3] when she shared an Instagram photo on Apr. 1 with her hands cradling the top and bottom of what appeared to be a sizable baby bump. She was seen naked from the chest town with a taped “X” over her privates on the photo, while sporting a colorful floral robe and a white halter pulled up over her bare tummy.

Tori had a serene look on her face as she gazed downward, and got highly glammed up for the photo. She was seen with perfectly coiffed long blonde curls and full camera-ready makeup. It was in her caption where she seemed to confirm her sixth child is on the way, as she only had “No. 6” written to explain the photo.

On any other day of the year, her “pregnancy announcement” would have had all of her fans cheering about the newest addition to her family with husband Dean McDermott, 54. But many fans noted the date and let Tori know that pregnancy is not something to do a practical joke about, especially as so many couples have trouble conceiving[4].

User @nic_mcallister told Tori, “I really hope you aren’t using a pregnancy as an April fools joke considering there are so many women out there who wish they could have just one child. You have been blessed with 5, please have compassion and empathy. This is nothing to joke about!” while @nani201981 commented, “If it’s an april fools joke it is utterly distasteful for all those women who suffer miscarriages[5].”

Fan @skinnerelise told the BH90210 actress, “If this is an April fools shame on you. Pregnancy is not a practical joke!” as @skylersw84 wrote, “If this is an April’s fools joke, it’s really tone deaf and insensitive to the millions of women who struggle with infertility or who’ve had a miscarriage.” User lorlou2427 noted how “hurtful” the post could be, writing, “I hope this isn’t a April fools joke. Many many woman can’t conceive and this is hurtful.”

Tori has already been blessed[6] with five healthy children. She and Dean are parents to Liam, 14, Stella, 12, Hattie, 9, Finn, 8, and Beau, 4. So it is understandable why fans would point out how distasteful it would be to claim she was pregnant with a sixth child, when so many couples struggle with infertility[7] or loss. So far Tori hasn’t commented on if this was an April Fool’s prank, and HollywoodLife.com has reached out to her reps to confirm if she’s actually pregnant. It’s worth noting the day prior on March 31, Tori posted an IG video[8] of herself going to Dr. Simon Ourian‘s Epione skin care clinic in Beverly Hills and she had no bump, wearing a cute polka dotted dress with a belt showing her slim waist and flat tummy.
