Karita Bekkemellem, who apparently was asked to resign her position as "equal rights and children's minister" in the Stoltenberg cabinet, has followed Valla's lead by airing her grievances about the Norwegian Labor party. She says much of what has been written about her was "malicious shit."
I'm ambivalent about this: I don't doubt what she's saying, and I've been concerned about the Norwegian Labor Party's domination in Norwegian politics since Gerhardsen more or less suspended the constitution after WWII. And the internal discipline has clearly done very little to foster a meriticracy in Norwegian politics.
On the other hand, the newspapers are making this all about personalities, and especially Stoltenberg. This is kind of tedious now.
But I guess it would be too much to expect from Norwegian journalists that they deal with systemic issues. Much more interesting to talk with Joar Hoel Larsen about why he refers to people from the US as USans rather than Americans.
