Finland's foreign minister was sacked on Tuesday after media published the text messages he had sent to an erotic "Scandinavian Dolls" dancer. Mr Kanerva sent around 200 messages from his office mobile, one of which demanded to know what she was wearing under her tight dress. The rest of them were like this: "Sounds almost like fantasy.

Some time earlier our Prime Minister Matti Vanhanen, 52, dated too. Her mistress said that they met through an online dating service, and that he dumbed her by a brief text message: "It's over." Mr Vanhanen said that they actually met at IKEA.
Yes, yes. That's more like normal Finnish behaviour. Speak nothing. Dumb by a text. Blame Sweden.
Well, after this she published a kiss-and-tell memoir detailing his romantic emails, text messages
