No news from Iceland… why?

How come we hear everything that happens in Egypt but no news about what’s happening in Iceland:

In Iceland, the people has made the government resign, the primary banks have been nationalized, it was decided to not pay the debt that these created with Great Britain and Holland due to their bad financial politics and a public assembly has been created to rewrite the constitution.

And all of this in a peaceful way.
A whole revolution against the powers that have created the current global crisis. This is why there hasn’t been any publicity during the last two years: What would happen if the rest of the EU citizens took this as an example? What would happen if the US citizens took this as an example.

This is a summary of the facts:

2008. The main bank of the country is nationalized.
The Krona, the currency of Iceland devaluates and the stock market stops.
The country is in bankruptcy

2008. The citizens protest in front of parliament and manage to get new elections that make the resignation of the prime minister and his whole government.
The country is in bad economic situation.
A law proposes paying back the debt to Great Britain and Holland through the payment of 3,500 million euros, which will be paid by the people of Iceland monthly during the next 15 years, with a 5.5% interest.

2010. The people go out in the streets and demand a referendum. In January 2010 the president denies the approval and announces a popular meeting.
In March the referendum and the denial of payment is voted in by 93%. Meanwhile the government has initiated an investigation to bring to justice those responsible for the crisis, and many high level executives and bankers are arrested. The Interpol dictates an order that make all the implicated parties leave the country.

In this crisis an assembly is elected to rewrite a new Constitution which can include the lessons learned from this, and which will substitute the current one (a copy of the Danish Constitution).
25 citizens are chosen, with no political affiliation, out of the 522 candidates. For candidacy all that was needed was to be an adult and have the support of 30 people. The constitutional assembly starts in February of 2011 to present the ‘carta magna’ from the recommendations given by the different assemblies happening throughout the country. It must be approved by the current Parliament and by the one constituted through the next legislative elections.

So in summary of the Icelandic revolution:

-resignation of the whole government
-nationalization of the bank.
-referendum so that the people can decide over the economic decisions.
-incarcerating the responsible parties
-rewriting of the constitution by its people

Have we been informed of this through the media?
Has any political program in radio or TV commented on this?

The Icelandic people have been able to show that there is a way to beat the system and has given a democracy lesson to the world — with Joe Smith and Mike Louden.

May 4th : post election “blues”

Friday, May 4th, 2012

Stayed up until 2am watching the Tories spin their way through the election results.

Usual cat fighting among the head honchos – well the lackeys, you never see anyone of substance until the dust has settled.

Not signed in to the media yet to find out the extent of the carnage but it creates an interesting scenario.

Question : will the savaging of the Tory vote and the “disappearance of Liberals” give the blue rinse fascists ammunition to force Scameron to the right with tougher cuts and anti social policies?”

I hope so, it will fuel the anger in the country of the middle England mob and the summer should be very interesting.

Just got an iPad and moved up from the smartphone which was bulging with stuff and beginning to stress out my eyes. I am not the best typist in the world and I really appreciate larger keyboard for writing and even more so for reading documents from #Leveson and news bulletins.

At last I can be totally paperless with as fracas news is concerned.

I have spent the last month catching up with my piano playing averaging 5-6 hours practice a day.

Mostly in the morning but I often do an hour at the end of the day and despite the carnage visited on my hands by 30 years wicket keeping, things are gong well.
