The Finnish Broadcasting Company today quotes the Dear Leader as stating that he has not needed any advice in 30 years, and that he does not intend to start taking any now.
[En] ole 30 vuoteen tarvinnut neuvoja enkä niitä ota.
Strangely, the Dear Leader nevertheless surrounds himself with five Special Advisers.
If any of them happen to read this story, please feel free to unburden yourself by posting a comment, telling us how you manage to put up with your situation, which must be very frustrating. Imagine working so close to the Der Leader, continuously being overshadowed by his perfection—and ignored at that.
By the way, I wonder what it was that made Der Leader give up on advice 30 years ago, back in May 1978, when he was 22 years old. If you have solid information on this issue, please post a comment. Ridiculous guesses are also welcome—after all, Finland’s domestic affairs situation is rather ludicrous these days.
