Skype in, Kristiansen!

Michael Kristiansen, newly departed top media advisor and right hand man for danish PM Anders Fogh Rasmussen, faces serious criticism for exorbitant telephone bills sent on to taxpayers. Private phone calls to the Czech Republic worth DKK 190,000 (EUR 25,300) were paid for by the prime minister’s office. (se Spin doctor’s phone bills in the spotlight for more info)
Not to pretty a situation one must say – bet Kristiansen regrets not having skyped in (respect to Janus Friis and Niklas Zennström!) a long time ago. Had he only used internet telephony Kristiansen wouldn’t have had such a huge bill to pay.
