Parallel universes dept

Norway is agog at the first publication of a Norrwegian Who's Who, or 'Hvem Ver Hvem', as our Norwegian chums call it.

If truth be told it is more like hard cover version of those tedious Power / Wealth / Foot size one hundreds that are still all the rage with newspaper publishers, and as such comes up with a Norwegian Power Top Ten.

And this is where we end up with reality, if not as we know it:

Number One is the splendidly named Roar Flåthen. Who dat? The head of Norway's trade union federation. Norway's PM scrapes in at #10.

Try, if you will, to visualise Brendan Barber of the TUC, or Derek Simpson / Tony Woodley of Unite. Not that easy, and I can summon up a mental image of Len Murray rather more quickly.
