…the Norwegian Justice Minister


February 22, 2009


Of all peculiar experiences…
I took take part in a prime time Norwegian talk show on Friday night. As you do…
Previously I’ve stayed well clear of any TV appearances that have been offered, but this time I failed to quickly enough come up with a good enough reason to decline, and soon found myself on a plane to snowy Oslo.

Still, despite the fact that I probably didn’t say very much of interest to anyone but a few budding cartoonists and my immediate family, it was a terrificly exciting experience that I in hindsight am glad I had!
If nothing else for the sheer surreality of it all.
Other guests included a much troubled Minister of Justice, Knut Storberget, and possibly even more interestingly the lead singer of the Death Punk band Turbonegro, Hank von Helvete (Hank von Hell) – or Hans Erik Husby as he’s more mundanely known when not in character.

To see me babble away in my native tongue, which after only 9 years abroad is worryingly diminished, have a look here!

Happy Friday!

Without wanting to take sides in the parties’ fight over the blogosphere, it surely is impossible for anyone who’s read anything about Derek Draper and Labour List, not to laugh out loud at the clip above.
