Some politicians understand things better than others. In Norway the Prime Minister decided to be a Taxi driver for one day. Some may think it is extreme paranoia, others will think it is a very good way to connect with people. I am amongst those who think that this is good.
In order to know your people you need to connect with them. It would be even better if it didn’t make the news or be even on my blog. Because it is now also a way to promote yourself. Better and even more sincere would be to just do this and use the info you get to make change. In any case it should happen more.
