The Guardian har laget en sak med tittelen «Norway´s dirty little secrets«, og den avsluttes på denne måten:
Norway has lost its ethical niche. Although it has a large aid programme and strongly supports the UN, it has otherwise joined the club of rich nations exploiting the planet for their own benefit. The leitmotif in its unethical policies is the failure to summon up the courage to regulate corporations, whether in oil, arms or finance. Unless governments do this, hopes of an ethical foreign policy will remain a mirage.
