    no such luck, the clown-show will continue until the oil fund has been empited. m8

    oh, and grats on another round of neoliberalism with corporate tax breaks, privatizations and weakening the safety net, because if there's any place on the planet where it's too expensive to pay a liveable dole, it's Norway.
    Best possible outcome of the election, all the major parties have lost mandates in the parliment, meaning the dinosaurs might have to rethink their strategy (wishful thinking i know) and thankfully the green nutjobs didnt get in a position to ruin the nations economy.

    *edit* if you dont think Norway is paying a livable dole now you're completely ignorant.
    Yeah, it isn't going to come crashing down in the next 4 years but gradually weakening the safety net and mass privatizations is the hallmark of the conservatives. 8 years of them in power is going to leave a mark. And let's not forget that the second biggest political party in the conservative government holds the US model as the holy grail of how society should be run.

    Neoliberalism will destroy Norway as it has already destroyed Britain. Watch out.

    Unlike the second largest left wing party that holds medieval mercantilism as their model. The peasant party can fuck off with their nationalistic, protecionism idiocy.
    Labour has been resting on its laurels for too long and need to figure out what they want as a party, they certainly aren't representative of the working class anymore. Not to mention the petty nepotism and cameraderie they so fuckign love.
    Then you have the small retard parties on the left who have no understanding of economy at all and would ruin this nation in a decade if they had their way. (green wants norway out of oil by 2020, replacing it with coastal fishing? wat?).

    Team Cholera won this time and i'm hoping team plague can come back with a more sensible approach next time.

    Like it isn't the same forces who are keeping the conservatives in power. The second largest party on the right is pretty much driven on a platform of anti immigration/fearmongering. And how many of their voters do you think want to stay in the EEA?

    I'm pretty sure there is a broad agreement across the board among the small retard parties on the left to continue Norways petroleum legacy with natural gas well beyond 2020. That aside, continuing expanding the oil industry with how things are going, is just as if not even more retarded than cutting oil production by 2020.

    The People's Princess...

    A floral tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales, displayed as part of a town's well dressing celebrations, has been described as "horrific" and "awful".

    The memorial displayed in Chesterfield Market Place marks the 20th anniversary of the death of the princess.

    However, the portrait has been mocked on social media, with some saying it looked more like Worzel Gummidge.

    only in Americastan can something like this happen.

    shooting a homeless guy for wanting a little peace and quiet to sleep ? fucking really ?
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    Got locked out by my dad accidentally while mowing the lawn. Had to forage from the garden for dinner. Raspberries and tomatoes were quite tasty, rabbits were too fast to catch. Dad got back a little earlier than planned, let me in. Had a shower and a beer. Decided to try an EPA for the first time, and enjoyed it more than the IPAs I've had previously. Slightly buzzed right now, life is good.
