Vote No in Iceland
Iceland faces a choice: pay €3.5bn, or about €12,000 per citizen, to a pair of far richer and more powerful countries; or cut itself off from outside financial help and the safe haven of prospective EU membership. The country will either spend years as an icy pariah state or saddle itself with massive repayments, or possibly both.
Polls suggest that most people will vote no to a controversial law agreeing to pay Britain and the Netherlands for bailing out domestic holders of failed Icesave savings accounts, an outcome which would be a glorious but self-defeating piece of Viking stubbornness.
Self defeating? Keep the money in their pockets rather than give it to Gordon, stay out of the EU, keep control of their fish etc. Sounds like a win-win to me.
