A few days ago I wrote about the subject of immigration appearing to be a factor in the Norwegian parliamentary election due to be held on 9th September.
Little noticed anywhere is another item about the Norwegian election; and that is a survey conducted by the anti-EU organisation, Nei til EU. In a recent survey carried out by them they found a majority of Norwegian MPs likely to be elected were in favour of Norway joining the EU or, as reported in News in English,a Norwegian English language website, to go along with EU Directives.
Twice the Norwegian people have refused to allow their country to join the EU, the last time in 1994, yet politicians never seem to give up with the aforementioned report stating that nearly 20 years after the last “nei” their politicians are once again “stirring the pot”.
On the upside, the Norwegian anti-EU organisation appears to be more active and – dare one say – better organised than those that exist in the UK, so this is another reason to follow the Norwegian elections on 9th of September.
