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:

I have a wonderful idea. The Uk should pull out of the EU and Iceland and the UK and Norway should form the North Atlantic Alliance. Maybe Denmark could give Greenland independence so it could join too. Then they would control the whole North Atlantic from Canada to Norway.

Since I wrote this four months ago things have changed. Now I think Denmark, Sweden, and Finland should pull out of the EU too. They could all be part of the NAA.

The other two EFTA countries are missing.

Liechtenstein and Switzerland build together with Iceland and Norway the EFTA.
Years ago EFTA was bigger, but for example UK, Portugal, Austria and sweden have joined the EU

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.

I would rather go for a united Scandinavia instead of EU. Maybe we would hv learned something from the finnish(of course we would have to join Finland) effectiveness and the Danish design :D
