Alexander Stubb is the superstar in politics in Finland. He does it all. He’s in the social media, he seems very responsible and smart guy and people love him. He’s a hero, I can’t think of a flaw in him, a defined superstar.
The “superstar-status” – in my mind, comes of how he handles things. He was just circuiting Finland in the end of May and people were going crazy in the shopping centre in which he was at, or actually… where ever he is at. We were at the “Naisten Kuntovitonen” as Lastenklinikoiden Kummit, and he held the whole event on his shoulders. For me he was “just another”- kind of chirpy and fresh- politician, until he Tweeted something about my performance in Jari Sarasvuo, the show which gave me the push I needed. I went online, did a little web-search, and I’ve been on Stubb’s side since then.
Alex would most likely want to do everything, but there’s just seven 24-hour days in a week, even for him… I tried to get him to come to FightBack – necklace’s publishing party, but he couldn’t make it. He wants a necklace though, and I’m more than proud to send him one. And even prouder to see him going around the globe, with the necklace on his neck.
