The Clock is Ticking


Not so long ago I heard someone on TV say, “EU is all hot a bothered for Norway” :XD:

Norway doesn’t want to share it’s oil-money and be dictated by EU, and for a long time Iceland stood by their side. But because of Iceland’s bad economy, they have applied for EU membership.
That worries the Norwegians who is starting to feel pressured into joining. And to make things worse they haven’t found any new oil recourses in a long time now, so they worry they may have run out.

I almost added Denmark at the end going, “Don’t worry Norway. He’s gooood” :XD:

Actually, the oil was not the main reason for the no to EU push, it was resources.
While Norway is rich on oil, we have major export of fish and other things, and by joining EU, we would loose control over our own natural resources, fish being a major part of it. The main reason why we still export vast amounts of fish is because of regulations on the fishing, meaning enforced to the point of opening fire on those who do not follow the guidelines.
Joining EU would mean total loss over this, and would decimate our natural resources due to "everyone can fish as they prefer" So until things like this changes, Norway will remain outside of EU. However this was not the only reason, but this was the major reason why all coastal areas (and half of norway is just that) voted no.

Why is Norway so Eurosceptic? What would they have to lose? I feel like it has something to do with oil, is that right?

I don't wanna ruin everyone's illusions (and I don't know if it has been mentioned before) but from what I learned, Norway is in the EEA (European Economic Area), which basically means that in order to be in a better trading position within Europe they have to (and actually do it in many cases) implement EU laws in their own - however without the advantage of being able to actually decide on those EU laws, since that is only possible for member states. All they can do is lobbying.

Samfylkingin believes that EU is the promised Land.
But others just wanted to open the package and see what is in it.
EU does not want us to see what is in the package at all. EVER.
We still want to know, but they won´t let us....
