Election time

There is general election in Norway on Monday. As usual, the language of politicans is not always as comprehensible to ordinary people as one should want. In many ways it has been a wet performance.

Many feel that the distance between people and politicians increases, and populist initiatives from certain quarters have tried to exploit this.

But on the whole, experts say, it has been a dull and grey election-campaign with only the odd spot of colour.

Hi Rune,
In American politics, everything is red, white and blue, so it is delightful to see such colorful displays.

Congratulations on the feather in your cap. Well deserved.

Har vel ikke vært oppholds siden jeg var der for endel helger siden sikkert :-0 om det er noen trøst har det ikke vært oppholds her i dag heller, lite foto blir, men vi lever i håpet.

Klem herfra i kvelden

Om språket er uforståelig så skal de ha pluss for fine farger på fanene....

Visst kan man går trøtt av regnværet, men det første bildet var veldig stilig. Nå har vi hatt noen dager med bra og brukbart vær her i Drammen, så jeg sender litt sol til dere også :)

Well, you captured that brilliant odd spot of color!!!!!!!!!!

At least there's some color in the first photo.

There is a house near to mine, they fly the Norway flag everyday.

I almost went to Norway. My husband then a professor in Singapore worked closely with Norway, maritime. I would have loved to go.

I am afraid in Singapore, they use styrofoam for almost every takeaway food. When I went there from New Zealand , I wasn't used to it.

Now in NZ, they also use them.

There are plates made by with potatoes. More expensive but good for the earth.

Good chatting with you.

Cheers,

Ann :)

Det første bilde er bare så utrolig fint! Måtte se flere ganger for å skjønne hva det var! Kjempeflott effekt du har fanget!

Når det gjelder valget; avslører intet, men skal selvfølgelig gjøre både min plikt og rett! Godt valg!

I really like the way you've illustrated and described your elections with words and photos. VERY well done.

After our 2008 elections in the USA, every other country's politics, election process and commentary sound interesting. Who won and who did you hope would win?

Great post!

Interesting comment about the times. Do you have elections once every four years? Or is the Norwegian system like the Canadian one where there can be an election whenever parliament votes a non-confidence motion? This week Canadians find out if we'll face the fourth election in five year. (We have a minority government at the moment so it's a possibility.) It'll be grey with little colour if we do. ;-)

I like the post, first all the color and the mirror reflection in the water and then the boring one with only a little color and like you said, dull with odd spots of color, MB
