Video: Norwegian Prime Minister Drives Taxi On Hidden Camera

The Norwegian Prime Minister has spent an afternoon working undercover as a taxi driver. Jens Stoltenberg says he wanted to hear from real Norwegian voters ahead of his campaign for re-election in September. The Prime Minister wore an Oslo taxi driver’s uniform and only revealed his identity once he was recognised.

      Imagine MR driving a TAXI – with a convoy of military jeeps and soldiers waving red batons from their jeeps..! A metaphor of the FACADE of SICK DEMOCRACY in Lanka today.

      Paranoid Dictator Rajapassa is scared to meet people… He needs 10 security vehicles and 100 army officers..

      This tells us about the true state of democracy in Lanka. In reality, today Lanka is is run by Gota and his DEEP STATE cabal that is consolidating his military dictatorship, while MR is the clown who provides a facade of Parliamentary democracy with all the corrupt politicians – a bunch of thugs, goons, criminals, looters and dead leftist geriatrics..

    PM of the wealthiest nation on the planet. Ranks as the best country to live in almost every year.

    Despite the ill-fated role they played in Sri Lanka, these politicians have steered Norway rather well. All in all.

    From being one of the poorest countries in Europe at the end of the 2nd World War II, to be a superior welfare state envied by many.

    Politicians are not given luxury vehicles, armed bodyguards etc in Norway. I heard most MPs use public transport to go to Parliament.

    They just do their job and leave when finished. No sickening dynasty building. No national monuments, sports arenas, airports and ports etc named after them.

    Compare that with the idiotic Sri Lankan politicians. From both parties.

    This is just a publicity gimmick. If the man was really interested in the way the average person feels about his government’s conduct of state affairs, then he hsould have kept the matter secret and act on his findings. Here, he is just playing to the media, pretending to be a hero.
    There was a British MP (a rich one at that too) of the conservative government who did a similar full blown publicity stunt to prove that an average person could live adequately with the 50 GBP per week unemployment allowance. He did not do this for the whole year, or the several years that a person remains unemployed in the UK in present economic conditions. He just copped out after 2-weeks. Thus, this MP was just a fraud, humiliating the poor and the weak, while they the MPs get all sorts of perks that they do not deserve (and most also fraudulently claiming those perks to line their own private nests.

    Politicians are cheats and parasites wherever they go, no matter in what country they live. Sri Lankan politicians are of course at the height of the pinnacle if parasites, but one thing they are honest about is that they do not deny they are corrupt and out their to make a killing while the going is good for them. They openly jump over teh fence for graft and bribery by the President, misuse public funds, claim graft, and live like national and regional kings, flaunting their ill gotten gains. BR is well known as Mr 10-20% variable, heheheh.
    The problem with western politicians is they are just hypocrits: they do one thing while they are uttering and showing off to the press something entirely different.

      Mahasohon
      [Politicians are cheats and parasites wherever they go, no matter in what country they live.] New Zealand former Prime Minister David Longie resigned from his post because he could not agree with his own Labour parties direction. You think he is a parasite. Closer to home Dahanayaka and in the case of Dudley Sananayke when he passed away had less than Rs.3000 in his bank account was he a parasite. Can give you more example’s but wouldn’t make any difference for people like you.Don’t make general comments and judge all politician’s with same yard stick because it will only your ignorance as a mutt-head.

    Our parallel in Sri Lanka is, MR should be tied to the Bullock Cart and the Bull to be kept on the cart as the Bull has more brains than MR to steer the cart.

      Well said Gamini. The new law prohibit slaughtering cows and the next law will be not to use cows in Bullock carts and in Paddy fields due to animal cruelty.

      Therefore the only option farmers have is to use the Parliament donkeys to plough their fields.

      A country like no other with enough and more Political Clowns.

      Oh Dear Dumbstruck
      List is much longer than you will ever admit to. In case you are dumbstruck my point was once you generalise only single person need as a exception.In case you missed it while you been dumbstruck two of the names are from Sri Lanka this dose not a exonerate majority of the present lot in Sri Lanka.

    I have heard of this news. I never thought this prime minister is doing this job to campaign his self. This idea is wonderful but I hope he did not get that personal to other people. -http://www.spygadgets.com/
