Icesave results “humiliating for Iceland”

bjarni-benediktssonThese were comments made by Bjarni Benediktsson, Inpendence Party leader when asked about the new Icesave agreement. Hoskuldur Thorhallsson, speaking for the Progressive Party, said that all earlier parliamentary work on the matter this summer was in vain.

The parliament finance committee came together today at 14.00 where members reviewed the new agreement. According to members of non-government parties, it looks as if the power of the Icelandic parliament has been taken from Iceland to the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.

They also say this confirms that UK and Holland used their influences within the International Monetary Fund to bully Iceland and have held Icelanders on their knees the whole time.
