The most important issue

So the most important issue of the Icelandic parliament is underway.  

Bjorn Bjarnason, former Minister of Justice has asked for a report on the effects of president’s Olafur Ragnar Grimsson’s comments in German papers earlier this week. Olafur Ragnar like so many other times put a silver foot in his mouth when he claimed to a German journalist that Iceland would not reimburse the lost savings of Germans, neglecting to mention that it was only his opinion, not an official statement. 

So are Bjorn’s intentions driven by a real concern for the German savers who have been reassured already that they will be reimbursed, or the need to sling mud into the direction of an old political foe?
