Oslo city centre – not pleasant
Thought for the day…”Postive anything is better than negative nothing”
“If your ship does not come in, then swim out to it”.
The Norwegian capital, Oslo, becomes even more unpleasant to walk around. It seems that in the very centre of the city, that drug dealers can openly sell drugs, and drug users can wait around, apparently without the police doing anything. As soon as you come out of the main train or bus stations then you see it. The newspapers were reporting that the Norwegian police said that they had lost control of one area (Gronland), and the situation seems to be getting worse. Go for a walk early morning and you may see used syringes on the ground. Walk around after dark (not recommended) and you will see drug dealers openly selling. It is very clear who the drug users are, but they seem to be immune to action. Add to that the large number of begging gypsies in the city and Oslo has become an unpleasant and dirty place. But why are the police not doing anything?? Surely the use of hard drugs must be illegal in Norway, but these people apparently get away with it, and openly too. And all the begging gypsies apparently do not have any legal right to stay in Norway, so why are they allowed to remain? What are the police doing about it? I wonder.
