Icelandic P M Resigns

Iceland’s prime minister resigns

Iceland’s embattled prime minister resigned on Friday citing medical reasons and called an early election for May – a move that could prompt a dramatic shift to the left after a 20-year experiment in free market economics.

Geir Haarde said a medical examination had revealed he had a malignant tumour of the oesophagus and will have surgery abroad at the end of January or early February. Elections had been scheduled for 2011.

Unlike our own Dear Leader who has a malignant tumour of everything.

Shocking that having destroyed his entire nation's economy he thought he could continue in office...

Not sure that's the sort of problem that needs to be aggravated.

Edit: I don't see anything giving the odds of surviving after the 'foreign surgery'.

I suspect he'll be having the rest of his life abroad, too.

Resigns and flees the country. Sounds like a plan.

Was he in a wheel chair having put his back out shifting his suitcases filled with gold bullion (belongings) out of his official residence?

Setting a precedent? Not a chance - our dear leader is far too arrogant to fall on his own sword. He won't leave until he is either forced out, or bankrupts the coutry. :angry:

It's a message to the rest of the world. I would expect politicians the world over to move even more to the left as a result.

Well done Iceland though, their guys were both corrupt and inept, they had to go.

The chances of GB resigning are the same as the chances of Kerry Katona becoming a Dame in the honours list. He wanted that job more than an X-Factor singer wants fame

IMmmm! I can see a business opportunity here - a Swiss health centre that specialises in diagnosing a random illness with a package that partiates the patient and all his funds (for a large fee of course).

Should be just the ticket for all sorts of politicians and bankers.

they say medical reasons, but fail to menton the population had parliament surrounded for the last 4 days.

Post-traumatic stress disorder? - that's a medical reason. :lol:

But his face is an ar5e, so did he just have a spare installed for contingency planning? Shame he didnt do the same for the economy.
