Finns out in front

Lover Boy Matti Vanhanen's Centre Party has won the country's general election by the slimmest of margins and he will continue in the office of Prime Minister. After 99% of votes have been counted oficial results show The Centre Party took 23.1% of the vote, the Conservative National Coalition led by 35-year-old Jyrki Katainengained 22.2% and the Social Democrats led by Finance Minister Eero Heinaluoma.21.5%.

Now the full results are available opposition the moderate Conservative, National Coalition Party under Jyrki Katainen gained 10 seats and narrowly fell short of becoming the largest party in the country...these were gained at the expense of the Centre Party and the Social Democrats - both lost ground, with the SDP shedding eight seats and the Centrists four - it is hard to envisage the new government being anything but a centre-right coalition. The good news for the PM is that there is a record number of lady MP's, 42 % ! 84 women and 116 men - there are 72 new MP's and 33 are women. 70 per cent of all MPs are married and the number of singles decreased from over 25 % to 19 %.

Down Under the new Flying Finn, Kimi Raikkonen easily followed in Michael Schumacher's tracks at Ferrari, easily winning the first F1 Grand prix of the year in Melbourne. Pic of Kimi with his 25 year old wife Jenni Dahlman "Miss Scandinavia" - one Finn it appears the PM has kept his hands off.
