Monty Python: Finland
Finland, Finland, Finland,
The country where I want to be,
Pony trekking or camping,
Or just watching TV.
Finland, Finland, Finland.
It’s the country for me.

You’re so near to Russia,
So far from Japan,
Quite a long way from Cairo,
Lots of miles from Vietnam.

Finland, Finland, Finland,
The country where I want to be,
Eating breakfast or dinner,
Or snack lunch in the hall.
Finland, Finland, Finland.
Finland has it all.

You’re so sadly neglected
And often ignored,
A poor second to Belgium,
When going abroad.

Finland, Finland, Finland,
The country where I quite want to be,
Your mountains so lofty,
Your treetops so tall.
Finland, Finland, Finland.
Finland has it all.

Finland, Finland, Finland,
The country where I quite want to be,
Your mountains so lofty,
Your treetops so tall.
Finland, Finland, Finland.
Finland has it all.

Finland has it all

"There was no contract manufacturer in the U.S. that could actually produce our vehicle," the car company's founder and namesake told ABC News. "They don't exist here."

Appropriate when you think about it since the same could be said of potential "customers" for these stupid little toy cars.

Great racket. Get a US gov. loan to build an electric car from the idiots here and then claim “there are no factories to build it here”, then outsource it oversees.

The loan should immediately be rescinded for breach of contract.

Maybe the idiots looking at the company for a loan approval should have required some type of presentation whereby, oh I don’t know, ACTUALLY SEEING A DAMNED FACTORY FIRST.

Does anyone believe for one minute that Fisker didn’t know there was no ‘facility here in the USA’ that could produce his cars BEFORE he got the loan.????

It just gets worse & worse.

Criminal indictments have to come SOON.

Finland is a small country, smaller than Montana, and with a population of 5 1/4 million people - just a few more than Colorado...

The USA is a country of over 300 million people and the most highly developed country in the world...

...and these people expect us to buy the story we can't find someplace in America to manufacture these vehicles?

Obviously they’re lying.
The Detroit area has many prototype / low production outfits.
That’s where the US automotive infrastructure is located.
