Kjersti Toppe is a politician representing the Norwegian Senterpartiet (The Centre Party). In a recent article in Dagsavisen (Google translation) she argues that wine articles in the press should be forbidden.
She says that the ban against alcohol advertising in Norway is being eroded. The Norwegian wine writer Heidi Jaksland is of a different opinion. She recently wrote a counter argument in her blog I Glasset (“In the Glass”): “Yes to wine reviews in newspapers” (Google translation). We have not yet seen any other reactions from the Norwegian press.
What do you think?
