Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Norwegian Parliament seems to know the score and is making demands of its own to the IOC:
** Apart from what they call "good Norwegian hospitality" and necessary access and security measures. the government politicians believe that the costs of IOC members' own accommodation during the OL weeks should be covered by the IOC itself.
Which means, 'Pay for your own five-star hotel and doctors.'

Then there are some unconcrete demands to bring the gigantic olympic bubble under control.

** The two government parties think the Oslo2022 committee must demand that limits be placed on any additional competitive events within the Olympics. Critics have claimed the Olympics have become much too big, with too many new sporting events added in recent years. The Norwegian politicians think that development should be brought under more control.

** They also want to see more use of existing sports facilities in and around Oslo, to control costs and reduce environmental impact.

Schengen is toast!
