f it's a bunch of white aryan guys who get dunced first, then it would mitigate this view.

The first to get dunced were white aryans - Iceland....

The best would be the fall of Britain bank's. I'm counting on Cameron on this issue.

I'm with you there. But don't forget to give Clegg some credit as well.

Protestant, too. However, there is no narrative of irresponsible people living off welfare having caused the disaster.

Iceland did not get screwed up. They just refused to pay, and sent their creditors out with a thanks.

I'm not believing that they are doing badly.

I agree with you that Iceland is doing the right thing (by now). But they get away with it because they are northern Protestants. If the Greeks did exactly the same thing, they'd be attacked by the media using all the usual stereotypes. Ireland will or will not be treated like the Greeks depending on which stereotype of Ireland the media believes in.
