Icelandic people tell UK to ‘Shove It’ over banking compensation
In a deal the Icelandic, UK and Dutch governments had struck and thought would get voted through, the people of Iceland voted in a referendum to not pay back the UK and Netherlands the money they lost in the Icelandic bank collapse.
Good for the people of Iceland for telling the UK and Dutch UP YOURS !
Start from asking why was this money deposited in such abnormally high interest accounts, who was laundering money, why were UK local councils putting money into such ventures DESPITE warnings that the offer was too good to be true.
If the UK wants money back, let’s start by getting 100′s billion from the crooked Scottish banks in the UK, and one northern bank in England, who defrauded the UK taxpayer of hundreds of billions of pounds. They were only bailed out because they were in Labour heartlands, and that would hurt Labour votes at the then coming general election.
