Soo, I read an article just now, that Iceland is in negotiation about joining the EU.
However they still owe Great Britain and the Netherlands 3,8 Billion we lend them to save all customers of the bankrupt bank of Iceland, Icesave.

The people of Iceland voted not!! to want to pay the money back...

I tried to wrap my head around it, but I just can't seem to get it.... GB and Holland saved the asses and the economy of Iceland and now they wanna leave us with a gigantic debt, because of their foolishness??

Why?

Why did they have a public referendum in the first place? It's money they owe Great Britain and the Netherlands, so it's not a choice, it's an obligation.

After all that fucking fuss with the volcano, and now this, I suppose the enitre planet just wants to rip Iceland's teeny tiny nuts off?

They should pay us back, seeing as we saved their ungrateful arses. Bastards.

I seem to be in a really bad mood today...
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.

I can understand why they don't want to pay it back, but that isn't our fault. You borrow money, you make sure you can pay it the shit back. You destroyed our travel industry for a week as well, where's the cash for that?

Fuck off, he can.
Keep that buck toothed, hipster, Noel Fielding wannabe away from our poisonous spiders and jellyfi-haaaang on a second...

Anyway, everyone is complaining, but I bet if America was in the same situation, they'd be whinging and moaning about paying it back. People are selfish. If we can keep money longer than we previously could, it's all for the best. It's how the world works. Don't act so shocked.

They had a vote on whether or not they should pay back their debt? That's a laugh.

I completely understand the Icelandic people. They get royally screwed over by the bankers and investors, and now they need to use what little money they have left to pay back for the trouble that the bankers caused.

But debt needs to be repaid, that's a given.

Just wait till till the next Björk album, their economy will come booming back and they'll have to pay up.

So what if they defaulted, we'll cut the interest rate of the loan and the payment details and then we'll all go back to not caring

You invest in a private bank with the hope of making yourself a lot of money on what is a decidedly risky investment and then expect the taxpayers of the country where that bank has it's HQ to pay you back.

We shouldn't give that money to them...
Iceland only has 200k people how are they ever going to pay 10 billion back? It's more a mistake of our country then Iceland's.

And what gives them the right to vote on whether or not to do something they HAVE to do, then just say "lol nah"? Bit patronising really...Or are they just saying they aren't doing it yet?

considering gordy used anti-terrorism legislation ( ) against iceland, and considering it's not the average icelander's fault, I don't blame them one bit. Maybe we should have had a referendum to see if we were willing to bail out our banks.
