Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

As long as Iceland hasn't put people in prison for fraud over this (and confiscated their assets - all their assets; I want the assholes sleeping under bridges when they get out of prison, if they ever do), Iceland absolutely has to pay - they've not shown any inclination to prevent similar frauds and pyramid scams in the future.

As long as the UK hasn't put people in prison for fraud over this (and confiscated their assets - all their assets), the UK has no claim on Iceland's debt repayments - they have not shown any inclination to prevent similar frauds and pyramid scams in the future.
