Secret taxi driver / Тайна водителя такси

   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.
