It is quite alright, with the Unity that Martin Rossen switching the job as chief of staff in the prime minister's office out with a top position in the industry giant Danfoss in just four months.
the Party has otherwise been determined to take a showdown with the golden revolving door between lobbyists, ministers and top government officials.
But Martin Rossen is not powerful enough to fall under Unity rules, says the party's demokratiordfører, Rosa Lund.

In 2014 began to play, the party's former member of the Parliamentary Bureau, Per Clausen, otherwise, against 'the merger between lobbyists, senior civil servants and ministers' of transition between the peaks and the 'posts, where lobbying forms a substantial part of the work'.
And Unity was also saw by the garden gate, when The former minister of finance, Bjarne Corydon - Unity favorite-aversion - switched to the consultancy company McKinsey six months after he stamped out of the ministry of finance.
- When we suggest a waiting period, it is not, after all, the ministers called Bjarne Corydon or Karen Hækkerup, it's all about that they have held a profession as a minister, says Rosa Lund.
And Martin Rossen's not powerful enough to fall under your rules, is it, you say?
- Yes, that is what I say. He hasn't been minister.
But he sat in Economy and Coordination committee, which only the most central ministers do?
And this is why it is really sensible that Parliament should have a chat about what we do in these situations. But have have not been a minister, no matter how you toss and turn, say, Rosa Lund, and continues:
- I think that there is a difference between being a minister and be employed in a lobby-organization, and so have the role of Martin Rossen has had, and will be employed in a private firm. It is two different things.
Danfoss president Jørgen Mads Clausen has said that Martin Rossen 'perhaps' to do the lobby work for the company's old dream: a bridge from Als to Fyn.

But the Unity do not believe that it is a lobby-like enough to fall under their rules:
- Danfoss is not a lobby organization, it is a private company, and the Unity proposal is that there should be a waiting period for ministers, and here is a bit of a different case, Brian, and I think it's good that you know.
- No, I do not. I have also proposed that it should apply to the officials, and let us say, then, that you can't call him a minister, so was he in the least official?
- the Unity proposals go to ministers. So it may be that the Extra Leaf and you, Brian, have all sorts of suggestions, but the Unity proposal of the ministers, who switches to lobby companies.
- So it is okay with you, that he switches to Danfoss the 1. november, though he had to pack down and leave the prime minister's office now?
- I think, that he must stop now, for now has he got a new job. But it would be strange to make a waiting period, and it is not what we are proposing. We propose a waiting period for ministers, who switches to a lobby-organization, and Danfoss is a private company, says Rosa Lund.
