Finland Facts

Finland Facts:

David Shearer thinks New Zealand should be like Finland.

Did you know that the Brown Bear is Finland’s National animal?

Finland has a hunting season for Brown Bear and apparently, it’s quite tasty…I even posted recently about Bear Oil and Bear Fat in a post about money saving tips using game meat.

Imagine the drumsticks you’d get from a Kiwi – we should farm them and hunt them.  Finally some good policy from Labour.

    Finland unemployment rate is 7.5%  Well done Shearer keep going with your “no cant do that, cant drill there, cant invest in that” policy, and we will be doing better than Finland !

      With GST at 26%, median personal tax 46%, CGT 28%, a CHURCH tax at 2% & some of the most highly priced booze in Europe I won’t be looking to emigrate to this socialist haven in a hurry.

        What is Church Tax? we’re all dying to know.

      • Gazzaw

        It is levied in Finland on the Lutheran & Orthodox churches. Several other European countries have them as well.

        Just pray that Shearer doesn’t propose one for NZ.

  • I had the chance to eat bear last year when I was in Slovenia but wimped out. Been kicking myself ever since. I should have tried the horse burger too.

  • Peter Wilson

    If Labour MP’s like Finland so much, why don’t they move there.

    Farming Kiwi is something we need to do urgently. Those things would make a pretty cool pest.

      I’ve always said if you want to save an endangered species make is a commercial entity. If there is a dollar in it people will find a way of increasing numbers.

       Did you not watch the video? Animals taste comes from what they eat. Kiwi’s eat worms and ants!

      • Steve (North Shore)

        A Kiwi eats roots shoots and leaves

      • Bunswalla

        Yeah that’s why lamb tastes like grass and snapper taste like worms

    Whale Oil – At least David Shearer, finally got off the couch and tried to sound bit intelligent. Now if you taunt him like this, then he will go back to his default mode of “say nothing, do nothing”. Then we will be deprived of comedy.

    KFC would change to KFK… 
    The only down side is that you would be seriously upset if you got served a wing instead of a drumstick!!!

    You could probably use the same recipe for Kiwi as you do for Pukeko.

  • MrV

    Stuff the Kiwi, bring back the Moa, if we can find some Moa DNA to stick in an Ostrich Egg or something.
    That’s what I call a drumstick.

  • SpiderPig

    Finland has four nuclear reactors generating 2.8 GWe.   Maybe he wants us to be like Finland in this regard too?

  • Gazzaw

    I wonder if Shearer enjoys a good thrashing in the sauna by big Nordic maidens with a bunch of birch twigs.

      Who doesn’t?

  • Agent BallSack

    Finnish people have fish breath and immoral relationships with each others wives. Perfect Labour territory.

  • I just read through the entire article of yours and it was quite good. This is a great article thanks for sharing this information. I will visit your blog regularly for some latest post.

    The Scandihooligan countries have a very high rate of suicide + and even higher alcohism rate even with the tax on booze.
