Labour's summer camp opens : Views and News from Norway

Around 1,000 young supporters of Norway's Labour Party were making their way over to Utøya this week, an island in the Tyrifjord that's often viewed as an incubator for future Labour Party leaders. Detractors call it a breeding ground for a relatively small clique of would-be power mongers.

The summer camp for members of Labour's youth group AUF (Arbeidernes ungdomsfylking) has launched the political careers of many a Labour Party leader. Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg was a fixture at the camp in his youth and remains keen to visit every summer. Both he, Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre and former Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland were due to make appearances at this year's camp during its five-day run that began Wednesday.
