A response to Muhler's post:
The King sees it as his role to be ''the glue in society'' and he's been called Norway's moral leader.
He's been a champion for the weak in society and here are some examples:
He fights for children/adults who is being bullied at school/work.
He fights for children/adults who are victims of abuse/violence.
He fights for drug addicts and many others.
He's speaking about them in his New Year's Speeches, in interviews and receives them at the palace.
It's therefore no surprise that he's concerned about the refugee crisis as well, and he has talked about it several times, so this is nothing new.
When he visited the new arrival center for refugees in Råde last year, he said that ''We must do what we can to help them, but he also said that we cant take in 5 million people here, because we aren't more than 5.'' He was accused of being too kind after saying this and was criticized by some politicians, but as experts says, he's never interfered in party political issues.
