In spite of Chinas political boycott of Norway, the Norwegian Socialist/left wing government keeps on giving financial aid to China. At least since 1980 the Government has spent between 130 and 140 million NOK per year, all in all around 2.5 billion Norwegian.
This is obviously not a lot of money, but why on earth should we support a hostile dictatorship trying its very best to boycott us? A country that can afford to spend trillions in Africa?
A couple of years ago the financial spokesman from the Labour party, made a big number out of taxing senior citizens and the financial catastrophe the country would be facing unless they got their way. When you see all the stupid decisions and the way billions are wasted abroad I find it hard to see they have any credibility left at all.
