Time for [more] lobby rules, says professor

The above comment landed me the front page of the Norwegian Christian daily Vårt Land today. Lately Norwegian politicians have been marching from the Norwegian Parliament to the Norwegian PR agencies. With the new minority government, more people need to be consulted and more bargains made. Thus my guess is that this will give the PR agencies more clout.  As always, however, the really issue seems, to me at least, to be that former politicians are trading on experience gathered as the people’s servants. Given the lack of transparency practiced by PR agencies, the public should introduce measures. More regulation could be one tool. (Comments were given to the journalist in true fly-over-academic-style on the plane to the Euprera conference in Barcelona.)
