Iceland under attack

A flashback to early days of the global financial meltdown: Iceland is being blackmailed

“at the very start of October, the UK began with a measure of extreme retaliation: freezing of the assets of not only Landsbanki but also Kaupthing Bank, which was totally unconnected to Icesave, using its anti-terrorism legislation. In doing so, the UK lumped the Icelandic people, their allies in NATO, together with organisations such as al-Qaeda… And since then, it seems to be using all of its influence to ensure that no international aid is really given to Iceland until its demands have been met. Indeed, Gordon Brown told his parliament that he is working “with the IMF” to establish how much it considered the UK was entitled to claim from Iceland.”

Britain’s invocation of anti-terrorism laws in its response to the Iceland is inexcusable.
