Pity Norway

Norway has a new "conservative" leader, a woman by the name of Erna Solberg. What great plans does she have for her country? To erase it, by leading it into the European Union.

Obviously, Erna Solberg is not a conservative. She is probably a right liberal, who believes first and foremost in the free market. I expect that she sees the European Union as breaking down impediments to free trade and the movement of labour.

It's interesting to note, by the way, that the Norwegians and the Swiss do not seem to have suffered economically by staying out of the Union.

How sad though that the Norwegians don't have a real conservative party to defend the independent existence of their own country.
