“This parliamentary debate is all a show, it’s a done deal on Nato,” said Erkki Tuomioja, a leading MP with Finland’s ruling Social Democrats. The party of prime minister Sanna Marin was long wary of alliance membership and, even now, Mr Tuomioja said, “you’ll find people in my party who will say, ‘if we make a mistake, we have to do it with Sweden’”.
