“The former prime minister of Iceland has been formally charged over his part in the collapse of the country’s banks in 2008”.
What a fantastic news, music to my ears. At long last justice for the people. However, selective justice is not Just. How about the rest of them? The presidents and prime ministers of countries such as Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Italy, Spain, the US, the UK, …to name but a few. How about their Cheer leaders? The IMF, the World Bank, the WTO, the Davos Economic Forum, to name but a few. Lest we forget, the Economists with no principle and questionable values and motives, from the so-called prestigious business schools who provided the “fuel” for the inferno that has engulfed the world. Obviously they all must be taken to court along side with Iceland’s former premier.
In the hope of justice to be done and to be seen to be done,
