The first weeks of the new regjeringssamarbeidet has been characterized by the arguing parties in between. Disagreements have emerged, and entangled in each other as villniss. As an impenetrable thicket. It has been so close that it has been difficult to see through and make out a common project.LOT TO DO: Trond Helleland is the parliamentary leader of the Right.

Now this is the end. In any case, if we are to believe the Conservative parliamentary leader Trond Helleland. Helleland has, together with key counterparts from the other coalition parties, carved out the ground rules to put a lid on internal disputes. Facing Today's Business sums up the Helleland rules as follows: "(...)there standing in the platform may well be discussed internally, but it should not be discussed externally. It is okay that the parties have different approaches, but it should not be placed against the other musician, but the opponent."
It is tempting to play further on våpenmetaforen to Helleland, and say that the rules should function as a machete - like clearing away the underbrush of disagreements and leaves a neat, but lush landscape. Aaahh, pull into the breath and feel the beautiful, clear air.
It was a little closer in the Radio studio on Monday morning this week. In the course of "Political quarter", i.e. fifteen minutes, managed Abid Raja (V) and Jon Engen-Helgheim (Frp) to argue about all three political issues. Retrieval of ICE-children to us, whether Left or Right has received the most attention in the regjeringsplattformen in asylum and immigration policy, and climate change. Engen-Helgheim thought Raja would be to discuss Liberal party support in asylum and immigration policy, they had after all been through "a lot of strange things on the climate". Frp-agent is a well known skeptic of anthropogenic climate change.
The last few weeks have been full of such sessions. It was about refugees, abortion, biotek and assistance. And it has gone in all directions – it has been Left against Right, Left against the Progress and the Progress against the progress party.
The new rules represents a linjeskifte. And it is really good. Voters must be able to listen to the government, be wise on what they mean, and decide whether this is something they would be willing to vote on that option at the next crossroad. If the views go in the real pine, it is not possible to make such an assessment. The question is still whether this is a linjeskifte, or whether it is a line in the sand. Already on day one challenged the principles in the agreement.
Carl I. Hagen now sit in Parliament in Mazyar Keshavaris absence. Last week he sent questions to the minister of justice, Tor Mikkel Wara about the details around the 182 repeat offenders among young criminals in Oslo. The answer he got from the justice department yesterday was not satisfactory. Questions from the Newspaper if this were to challenge the new regulations, answer the Garden that he as the Oslo-politician must have the opportunity to follow up such matters. Of course, there is a point, but shows that the regulations will be subject to interpretation – and get constant new attachments.
the Rules will never be able to cover over that gap in the political position of this government is unusually large.
opposition is the policy a gift package. That Helleland says, will be launched towards the opponent, not the other musician. What if the opponent believes the same as the other musician? Will it still launch? In this case, it løskrutt. If the progress party in Parliament attacking the Labour party in a case concerning asylum, Støre & co play the ball back: the Progress and/or the Left thinks the same – why angiper you not them?
Is it because it is against "the rules"?
There are no the quick fix on the samarbeidsutfordringene for this government, and Helleland even says that it should not be kadaverdisiplin. "Otherwise, die parties out". It is, unfortunately, a little too precise formulation, for it is exactly what threatens both the Left and the Progress . They are fighting against sperregrensa, and already the debate is high in the Left about the need to highlight own policies stronger. In This, they should do the same, but where the mood is still so tense after retningsvalget in the fall that no one dares do it. The average of the last measurements show that the progress party is struggling in the uphill battle, with a support level at 11.3 per cent. The right sinks also in attendance, but has so far been clear of the internal battles. In return, they have gotten the job to be regelryttere.
the Conservative Trond Helleland must be the most optimistic as he progresses to the work. He will also have to be the most hardworking.Immigration is not a sin that can be inherited in three generations Comment
