These municipal elections were a good indicator that most Finns understood how incompetent populists really are decided not to support them anymore. Greens gained more popularity, which is also good news. In most big towns it is either the second, third or the fourth biggest party now. In Helsinki the second biggest party! I don´t know how the municipal system works in Britain, but here they all get elected according to amount of votes, so even when the biggest parties get most seats, also the "little" parties get some seats. As a results, all need to cooperate with other parties, as none have a majority on it´s own. I guess that makes it impossible for any extremest to change system too much.
