I would hope that all Oslo residents are aware of the upcoming local elections.

Now don’t worry this blog will not try and sway you to vote in any particular way. Though I will encourage everyone to vote and have a say in the way the city is run.

Last night whilst wanting to get a good overview of what all of the different parties stood for, I took the NRK Oslo election guide test.

Firstly it asked me to indicate my three main priorities in the upcoming elections.

I was saddened, but not surprised, to find dogs or canine welfare were not on the list.

There was also no option with regards to small businesses, with it all grouped under the general “business”category.

Suddenly I thought that might be room for a new political party… Hunder Uten Grenser (HUG) / Dogs without Borders (just to clarify Border collies are absolutely always welcome).

So what would this new party stand for?

The party would introduce a new obedience certificate. Much like a dog form of driving test, owners and dogs could pass a test and then be free from the constraints of bรฅndtvang.

The party would also support the creation of more dog friendly zones, cafes and restaurants in and around Oslo.

There would also be an increase in bins and rubbish collection on the main trails in the woods. Because no one needs to carry a poo bag for 6km.

But we are not afraid to also have some unpopular policies. The party would increase the toll charge for private cars around Oslo. This increase in charges would subsidize any green plate trade vehicles for small and medium businesses who would therefore be able to drive around in reduced traffic at no additional cost to both companies and their customers.

Whilst on the topic of business innovation and support, my party will float a more nationwide policy to stimulate the Norwegian economy. The party believes that every person in Norway above the age of 16 should have the automatic creation of a company registered to their social security number.

This would allow every individual to develop their creative hobbies, whether products or services, and be able to invoice others. Any revenue would be simply added to their tax return as extra income.

This new approach would not only increase tax revenues but also promote mental health through people being able to find purpose and meaning through their hobbies and passions.

Unfortunately HUG Party (Dogs Without Borders) does not exist as yet. So you’ll just have to pick a different political party. Choose wisley as your vote does make a difference.
