Ingibjorg Solrun’s big stage

Yesterday Ingibjorg Solrun Gisladottir, leader of Samfylkingin took the stage at the party’s meeting and declared it is not time for elections. She also stated that the interests of the people of Iceland should be more important than the interests of her party. As if that weren’t obvious.

But that’s not the most interesting event she has participated in this year.

In March this year, Ingibjorg took the stage in Copenhagen where a group of Icelanders held a press conference to display Icelandic business and its leader in a more favorable light than the Danes had been seeing.

The other speakers, Sigurdur Einarsson, former Kaupthing chief who claimed the Danes did just not understand his way of doing business but is now trying to buy parts of it back after the collapse. And Richard Portes of the London Business School who defended the Icelandic model as well as his paycheck deserved. Ingibjorg was there on state business, presumably as the rumors about Baugur being her party’s big backer have never been confirmed, and defended the krona.

It would be interesting to see a follow up from that meeting.
