“Icelandic government more interested in helping banks than households”

Seven out of every ten Icelandic respondents believes their government cares more about the profits of the banks than about households.

This is the conclusion of a new poll by MMR in which 14 percent of respondents disagreed with the above sentiment. 860 people took part in the online opinion poll, RUV reports.

Only 16 percent of people said they think the Icelandic parliament stands up to protect the finances of normal people, with 64 percent saying the institution does not.

The public has little more trust in the opposition parties though, with just 30 percent believing a different government from the opposition would do a better job.

Finally, 60 percent of respondents felt that the joint central bank and FME (financial regulator) proposal on dealing with foreign currency indexed loans is unfair.
