Brown Slapped With a Wet Fish by Iceland

Invoking the UK Terrorist laws against Iceland, a NATO ally, was one of the more disgraceful of Brown's actions when Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.  The President of Iceland has now refused to sign a bill to recompense the UK taxpayer for the money Brown used to pay off his client state 'investors' .  Brown sought to avoid political unpopularity by transferring the risk of non-payment onto the long-suffering tax-paying UK population, and compensated those who thought there was such a thing as a free lunch and if there wasn't, Labour would bail them out anyway.  They were right in the latter.

Brown dumped Labour supporters' debt onto us all.  Icelanders will now vote in a referendum whether they agree with Brown that they should pay off  the compensation given to those who risked and lost.  I wonder if there is a betting market for what the Iceland referendum result will be.

More red faces in County Hall, Maidstone I expect, Hats!

They could have spent it all on more grit perhaps...

Don't forget that this was Brown trying to appear courageous!

Absolutely. Unimpeachable.
Gordon Brown, instead, is very impeachable, or at any rate should be impeached.

Awfully brave, attacking Iceland, Scrobs.

And fancy having to watch the Icelandic voters telling Brown where to get off instead of having done it ourselves.
