I hope this is the first of many such appearances in the public domain.

  1. This is a good article. Oliver Norgrove can't really tell readers, but the full article is available direct on-line on the Behind The Paywall website. This picks out good articles from the 'Times' and 'Telegraph' so Norgrove's article is clearly seen as an important one. Go to:

    The delightful photo of the EFTA countries' Ministers (three blondes!) is from 2016. The Icelandic Foreign Minister then, Lilja Alfredsdóttir, has been replaced by a man, following the General Election of November 2016, but Iceland's policy of supporting UK entry into EFTA remains the same. There has now been a General Election in Norway (September 2017) and the Eurosceptic right has gained seats; so the next Norwegian Government may be less pro-EU and more welcoming of the UK as a member of EFTA. (Contrary to some assertions the outgoing Government of Norway never expressed opposition to the UK joining EFTA, and the Storting has never had a formal debate on it.)
