Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, that's the way things are (for branches) under the single market, and that includes the European Economic Area. I don't see any major problem with it other than the general insufficiency of banking regulation on the European level -- deposit insurance taken alone seems to be arranged well enough.

General regulation of finance is where the British government is a problem. Maybe the Dutch government too, although I don't really think so at the moment. So on a karmic or moral level I don't know about the British beef with Iceland. Legally, though, they are fully in their right to insist on equal deposit protection for their citizens.
