We owe Norway a tree

Sky News have photos and bios of some of the Utoya victims. Seeing the photos brings home the senseless waste of bright, lively kids. It’s like Liberal Youth being decimated.

A commentator has already suggested the following, so I am seconding it. Oslo has quietly sent us a big tree for Trafalgar Square at Christmas every year since 1947, to thank us for our help during the war.

Having seen the quiet dignity and fortitude of the Norwegian nation in the last few days, I think we owe them a tree in return.
