One typical characteristic of the Conservative movement: Greed - Here in Norway an example just emerged

How a Filthy rich Norwegian tax refugee donates to the Right wing of
the Norwegian political establishment. Question: Why is it so common
with political parties of the right? Suggested answer: - because they
have the character to be greedy and look down upon those who are less
It is common in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, UK, USA, just to name these
how the conservative right wing side of our political divides always
feel that they have something to loose if they stop protecting the
political segment that will guarantee that their wealth will be
protected and even topped. This happens even if they used our
collective efforts to generate that wealth.
For example, all of us worked to build roads, schools, the
communication network and consumed the products which your organisation
produced and sold or worked to help you grow your business. Now
you are a millionaire or billionaire, it is your money and the
government must protect you from paying an extra tax on it.
In the UK, for example recently studies have shown how people have
become very self centred and how the wealthy have tended to carve out
places where they protect their wealth. The government here has given
tax cuts to those on the wealthy list why killing the low-income
earners with huge tax burden. Besides that people have become more
about things like "my tax money should not be spent on single
mothers…the unemployed… disable people etc." Others are being forced to
pay extra taxes on bedrooms. The issue here is that the government in
office in a Conservative government - although they say they are in
In Sweden the tradition view that poor and vulnerable were protected
has collapsed as income gap has widen in the country and the
Conservative government has made it hard for social mobility to take
place. Hospitals, schools, and many social welfare services have been
privatised and those companies that run these paid by tax payers
transfer their gains abroad instead of re-investing it at home and
expand job creation. Services in these welfare organisations such as
hospitals have crumbled - welfare homes for the elderly have seen their
In the USA of all places, the Democratic (liberal) Obama administration
has found it hard to perform any of the real reforms expected
because the Republicans (conservatives) would not allow him to take a
step with out his idea being shot down. One typical example is that the
Republican's wish to break down the Obama care or the healthcare system
passed by the president. Since the new healthcare system makes it
possible for more people to gain access to healthcare and for
pharmaceuticals to reduce their costs, Republican politicians with
strong stake in the huge market are not happy to see their interest
being eroded for the interest of the people.
Now back to Norway, the businessman Arne Fredly, in 2001 moved to
Monaco and has no longer been paying taxes to Norway. He is now feeling
home sick and wants to come back home but would feel happier if the
Conservatives where back in office so that they could give him more
concessions and protect his huge wealth. One way of doing this is to
contribute to that party so that they have more funds to win the next
This is exactly what businessman, Arne Fredly is doing - contributing
to the Conservative Party's election campaign. - Problematic, many
Norwegians think but not the Right wing side of the political divide.
The investor and billionaire made no secret of the fact that it was the
Norwegian tax system that led him in 2001 moved to Monaco. Fredly is
accounted to be worth Nkr1.6 billion, and has given the right wing side
Nkr100,000 for this year's election campaign various Norwegian news
"We checked that he was a Norwegian citizen, and that his contribution
was in line with the Political Parties Act. But beyond that we do not
accept the constraints related to the gifts we receive, we do not have
conditions of entry," says the Conservative Party General Secretary,
Lars Arne Ryssdal according to media reports.
He believes it is not problematic that the party gets money from Fredly
and the party law entitles him to it. It states that Norwegian parties
cannot receive financial support from foreign companies or nationals,
but that it is legal to receive money from Norwegians living abroad -
including tax refugees.
Nevertheless despite reactions, the Conservatives are fine with that and accept the gifts of money from tax havens.
"There should be direct embarrassment for any party to be funded by tax
refugees," says Sigrid Jacobsen, Director of the Tax Justice Network.
Her view is supported by Professor Oddbjørn Knutsen from the Department of Political Science at the University of Oslo.
"It is of course problematic, and it is clear that the recipient may
have problems with credibility if the donor in not resident in the
country and contribute financially to the community here," said Knutsen
That is the conservatives and that is how they behave all over the place.
