A new Norwegian English-language blog opened for business a few days ago. It’s called “News from Norway”, and is run by someone called The Observer. His arrival in the blogosphere has helped ease the pain of Fjordman’s retirement.
Today’s post is about the presence of large number of unskilled immigrant welfare-recipients in Norway’s major cities, and the problems they pose for the Norwegian economy.
The decisive blow… was handed to our politicians a couple of weeks ago by one of the main business organisation in Norway, the NHO. It published a study in one of the national newspapers on the effects of immigration, and it revealed what opponents of a liberal Norwegian immigration policy has been saying for years. It’s simply not sustainable. We’re not gaining anything by “importing” massive amounts of welfare recipients from third world countries. On the contrary, we as a nation are losing out big time. The study warned us that if changes weren’t carried out swiftly we stand to lose our entire national surplus due to the ill effects of our current policy. That means 250 billion us dollars right down the drain.
If we had sensible politicians in Norway I wouldn’t worry. If we had sensible politicians I’d know they would do everything humanly possible to implement the necessary changes to reverse this negative trend and that things were going to be alright in the end. But unfortunately we’re not blessed with sensible politicians in my country, and that scares the hell out of me.
I’m putting News from Norway on our blogroll. It looks to be a good source of news from the northwestern corner of Eurabia.
