Gordon Browns government accused of complacency over Icelandic Banks

    Evening Standard yesterday had the blurb: “Brown at war with City”, they failed to add “Against the British People”.

  • To be honest, I didn’t pay too much attention to the warnings about Iceland – it didn’t seem to chime with the fact that most of Iceland’s most visible wealth is actually cash deposits, unlike UK retail banks which are esentially gambling houses.

    This is why I don’t think we should fully trust what we are hearing about Iceland’s economy from the UK government or UK media.
