Norway in a nutshell

Since May 1st this year emergency cars in Norway need a taxi permit. The taxi-organizations demanded this because “hey – they are driving people around and charge them”. Isn’t it incredible? This is Norway in a nutshell – we laugh at other countries’ bureaucracy but we’re not better. The doctors visiting people have complained and want to stay clear of this rule, the application will be either accepted or denied this week.
If its not accepted I am worried how Norway will turn out to live in the next years.. Will the fire department and police need a taxi permit as well in the future?
I also read that every 5th student in 9th grade here in Bergen cannot read! And that is ethnic Norwegians, I wonder how the total is. Isn’t Norway great!?
