I have a lot of respect for the Prime Minister of Norway.
He has been struggling in the polls recently against his Conservative rivals, so he wanted to go out and “meet the people” and talk to them about issues on their minds – whilst generating some good PR.
Organised by an ad agency, and disliked by the police and all his security, Jens Stoltenberg decided to run a taxi for the day. A great way to generate some PR for yourself
Prince Phillip has his own London Taxi so that he can travel around London more discreetly, and I have it on good knowledge that the King or Queen of Jordan used to drive taxis around the city as well! Clearly a growing trend.
