Áfram Ísland

Patria, 2009.

Finally someone has taken the responsibility for the actions that put us in this shit.
The government has now ruptured, finally. I seriously hope that some measures will be taken, more than 100 days after the fall of the entire banking system. It is a strange feeling that the Independence party is not in power. I sincerely believe that nothing can be as bad as the former existing government. The left green party warned in 2005 against the danger of the over bloating finance system. Obviously no one listened.
I want Davíð Oddson away, the former prime minister and now the head of the central bank. The very man who sold off the banks. I also want to see frozen assets of the men (they were mainly men) who put the country into this mess. Remember that experts say that even if there would be no global crisis, Iceland would have gone bankrupt. It is not about that liquidity was suddenly scarce. It is about that they were wheeling and dealing illegally, with suspected corruption and a certain lawlessness.
I heard yesterday that the man who was one of the brains to Icesave is now head of the internal investigation of Landsbanki (one of the banks that the state took over). Yes the very same people who got the country in the mess are still in their jobs. The wealing and dealing men are still wealing and dealing.
I just hope to see a healthier Iceland, more aware and conscious about future generations.

Una putada lo de Islandia pero se tienen que depurar responsabilidades.

¿sabes algo acerca de un crédito rusoa a Islandia?¿ Se lo concedieron?

Espero que salgan pronto de la bancarrota.

ánimo y saludos

Gracias Iceman.
No pagamos los responsables unos sueldos millionarios para ser responsable y tener tanta responsabilidad. Que asuman su resonsabilidad.

Saldremos en 10 años, mientras tanto a comer cabeza de oveja, bailena y pescado. Con suerte algun platano.

Perdón de antemano por la pregunta absurda.

¿Existen cárceles en Islandia?

Creo que hay tres.
Uno para mujer, luego litla hraun, que está en el sur. Uno pequeñito en Reykjavik pero es mas donde entran al principio - no se como se llama.

Tranquila Yrsa, no hace falta que te molestes.

Era simple curiosidad. No se porqué me ha venido esta cuestión a la cabeza.

Bona nit.
