Norwegian PM to go undercover
August 12 , 2013
Norway's prime minister ended up going undercover as a taxi driver "to hear what people really think".
Jens Stoltenberg said "if there is one place people really say what they think about most things, it's in the taxi." The passengers were not aware of the driver's identity but many of them guessed it. A number of passengers even criticized his driving and he told one of them that he hadn't driven a vehicle in eight years.
His conversations with the passengers ranged from oil to education and a hidden camera captured it all. Stoltenberg said the country would be better off if he served as a prime minister rather than as a taxi driver.
