Come on Norway!

I see the wives of the Rossport Five have written to the Norwegian Government appealing for the country's Prime Minister to intervene in the Corrib gas dispute.

The Norwegian state is the majority shareholder of Statoil, which has a 36.5 per cent stake in the gas field.

About 20 supporters of the jailed men have staged a protest outside Norway's embassy in Dublin.

This is obviously a very unpleasant situation and hopefully the Norwegian government will do something to help the Rossport Five. It's clear that with this issue, our government has been most unhelpful.
