Taxi!

Behind the sunglasses and uniform is no ordinary cabbie

It's actually Norway's Prime Minster Jens Stoltenberg, working incognito in Oslo.

He said taxis were the best place to hear the views of ordinary Norwegians.

Passengers were astonished when they discovered who was driving.

But, he is unlikely to moonlight again; Stoltenberg hasn't driven for eight years, so his skills are a little rusty.

Transcrição em português

Táxi!

Atrás dos óculos escuros e do uniforme não está nenhum motorista de táxi comum…

Na verdade trata-se do primeiro-ministro da Noruega, Jens Stoltenberg, trabalhando incógnito na capital Oslo.

Ele disse que um taxi é o melhor lugar que existe para se ouvir o que pensam os noruegueses.

Os passageiros ficaram surpresos quando descobriram quem estava dirigindo.

Mas, é pouco provável que ele volte a fazer trabalho extra; Stoltenberg não dirigia há oito anos, o que o deixou um pouco enferrujado.
