More of an automatic reaction when the Finns allied to the Nazis,
although that alliance was for their rather more local reasons.
There's never been any Anglo-Finn emnity I think, nor any actual
warfare? Some of my best friends are Finns, when they're sober! :-))

There were two sorts of Socialists around at that time. Bolshevik Socialists
and National Socialists. I don't believe one socialist camp was better over
the other.... An Anglo-French fleet sailed in the waters of the Baltic
during the Crimean War in mid 19th century and destroyed the Bomarsund
castle in Ahvenanmaa, Finland. At that time Finland was a "Grand Duchy", a
fairly independent country in the Russian Empire. Naturally those war
efforts were more targeted on Russia rather than Finland. The incident is
known in Finland as "Oolannin sota" (war) (Oolanti, Åland as the Swedish
speaking folks call the archipelago).

There is not one municipality in Sweden where the Swedish speakers have as
strong a majority over other language groups as in some municipalities in
Oolanti. Närpiö, Närpes in mainland Finland was the most Swedish
municipality in this respect just a few years back. It isn't so anymore due
to immigration of non-Swedish speaking people.

Germans have been ****ed about this piece of news which knows to tell that
an English family was granted compensation because their holiday was "in
ruins" because the hotel they booked in was full of Krauts. Well, Germans
have gotten their revenge: there is no English football team playing for the
European football title in Austria and Switzerland.


Oh shuddup!

project who the enemy was.


Are you saying that Atatürk was a fascist? Be be careful next time you
travel to Turkey.

Especially in Istanbul. The British Prison supposedly accommodate inmates in
horrendously dark, cold and damp dungeons.
