‘I am dyslexic and I write it myself’: Norway PM

A man who ridiculed the spelling of the 'assistant' managing Prime Minister Erna Solberg's Facebook account was knocked squarely into place when she replied that she had written the post herself, adding that she suffered from dyslexia.

'I am dyslexic and I write it myself': Norway PM
“I am dyslexic and I write it myself,” Solberg, who won an award for her social media use in 2013, shot back. 
“It was uncomfortable being seen as a cyber bully,” Thor Morten Wangen (27) said after inadvertently becoming hit by a deluge of digital vitriol for his insensitive comments. 
“I had no idea she had it, and it changes the whole situation. I was quite embarrassed.” 
“It’s a little pernickety,” Wangen wrote on the Facebook page, after some typos appeared on her Facebook page. “But it seems as if Norway’s prime minister should actually have assistants who write Norwegian correctly.” 
Solberg was diagnosed as suffering from dyslexia when she was 16, and has spoken about it frequently.

Norway's prime minister Erna Solberg, foreign minister Ine Eriksen Søreide, minister of health Bent Høie, and business minister Iselin Nybø will all attend the press conference at 4pm, indicating that they plan to make a significant announcement. 
The conference will also be attended by Espen Rostrup Nakstad from the Directorate of Health, and Frode Forland, Norway's state epidemiologist at the Norwegian Institution of Public Health.
“I think this is what we've been waiting for,” said one of the members of the Facebook group  “Oss med familie eller kjæreste i utlandet under Covid-19 2020” (Those of us with family or sweethearts abroad during Covid-19 2020), which has been pushing for the rules to be relaxed so they can bring their partners to Norway. 
But another member pointed out that as Norway's justice minister Monica Mæland, who is responsible for setting the rules for family reunification, is not attending, the may be disappointed.
