Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A few questions for anyone that might be knowledgeable about Norway:
  • Could one man plan and execute all of this alone? Is there any information on investigations among Norway's extreme right?
  • If the suspect was indeed as Chris Cook says, "a prominent member of the Fremskritt party's youth movement", doesn't this create a PR problem for the party - to say the least? What are they saying for themselves?
  • Were there no police officers in the island? I mean, shouldn't there be?
  • Is there some really dark side of Norwegian society that is surfacing here? Recently, I always connect Norway with its uniquely violent, and sometimes murderous (not to mention racist/fascist on occasion), Black Metal scene, especially of 10-20 years ago...
  • Yet this is still one of the more equal societies in Europe, no?
  • The left of SD in Norway is in decline, and it is a part of the ruling coalition. Are there two facts correlated?
