Is the Power of Corruption Infinite?


Is parliament about to top its previous and incredible achievement.

Will the majority, vote to stop the investigation of the national bankruptcy of Iceland, by interfering in the proceedings of the impeachment court, – with the removal of the special prosecutors office to follow?

It is said that parliamentarians connected to the murky waters of the previous administration have been blackmailed and threatened with exposure.

It is also said that, members of parliament who through the years have advocated transparent governance and claimed to be champions for the “public interest”, are about to reveal their true nature.

Language, it’s use and it’s control, is said to reflect the reality of a nation. There are no words in Icelandic for competence  and accountability.

Sample contributions from the fallen banks: (Voting Record: r = +1.0)

Þorgerður Katrín Gunnarsdóttir * Kaupþing 1.500.000 Landsbanki 1.500.000 = 3.000.000.
Guðlaugur Þór Þórðarson * Kaupþing 1.000.000 Landsbanki 1.500.000 = 2.500.000.
Kristján Möller * Kaupþing 1.000.000 Landsbanki 500.000 = 1.500.000.
Össur Skarphéðinsson * Landsbanki 1.500.000 = 1.500.000.
Ásta Ragnheiður Jóhannesdóttir Kaupþing 250.000 Landsbanki 300.000 = 550.000.
Ragnheiður Elín Árnadóttir Kaupþing 250.000 Landsbanki 300.000 = 550.000.
Árni Páll Árnason Landsbanki 300.000 = 300.000.

* On the witness list (govt minister)

The SIC Report (8.11.2) stopped at overall debt position of more than 100 million, so these figures (p. 165 – 167) are peanuts, what’s interesting is the correlation.
