ICELAND:People Stand Up, Government Falls

ICELAND: People Power Produces Unexpected Muscle

One of the stories that has not surfaced in UK media over the past few weeks is the long series of peaceful demonstrations outside the Icelandic Parliament.

What now? "Likely possibilities are either a national unity government or a government of the SDA and the Left-Greens, with support from the Progressive Party".

I guess the reason our media did not publicise these demonstrations is that to have done so might have compromised their impartiality.

Or it might give us ideas. Here in the UK, we do not of course have demonstrations like those hot-blooded Icelandic types. Our demonstrations do not go on all night, we stop at 5 o'clock and have a nice cup of tea and watch ourselves on telly.

But we might get a more democratic electoral system as a result of the recession.
