The poisoned chalice

No one applied for the job of Special Attorney who is supposed to investigate the fall of the Icelandic banks.

It might become a poisoned chalice for the person who would take the job. He/she would have to declare all of his/her connections to polticians, businessmen etc, as well as financial connections.

Goes to show how difficult it is to speak up in a small country where everybody knows your name.

    While law is supposed to be a device to serve society, a civilized way of helping the wheels go round without too much friction, it is pretty hard to find a group less concerned with serving society and more concerned with serving themselves than the lawyers.
