James Bond asks for reconciliation of UK and Iceland

In an interview with local paper Frettabladid, the actor Daniel Craig urged reconciliation “sátt”.

“Our nations seem to fall apart with a few-year-intervals, and I have no idea why,” says James Bond actor Daniel Craig in an interview published in the Icelandic newspaper Frettabladid. “We need to watch out for each other instead of going this way, Iceland and the UK always seem to have the urge to be arguing, but I hope that we can solve this. The last thing we should be doing is arguing over money”.

When asked if he was not the candidate to solve this crisis, Daniel Craig said “I am not sure if my accounting skills are good enough”.

Icelanders have had it in for Gordon Brown since he froze Icelandic assets in the UK using the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act. Craig knows about the matter. “I do not know what to say. It’s a question of where people stored their money and made investments. The whole world is bleeding because of this, people that handled depositors’ money made mistakes.”

“I am not sure if Iceland and Gordon Brown will be friends again, but…” said Craig and paused, then continued saying “I do not know what to say, it’s just all about money”.

Daniel Craig has been introducing his new James Bond movie “Quantum of Solace” being previewed in Iceland on the 7th November. Around 55.000 Icelanders saw the last movie, Casino Royal.
