Vote for the Fish
Ninety-three percent of Iceland's taxpaying voters decided against letting their government repay foreign investors who lost out when an ONLINE Icelandic bank crashed. As one fisherman noted: it's not his fault people got greedy and turned to banks and away from fish.
So now the government is trying to negotiate more favorable repayment terms, which means the people will pay anyway.
I vote for the fish.
