Dagens bonuscitat

"There’s no evidence that the prime minister’s family’s offshore investment (like those held by our finance minister, internal affairs minister and others) included stolen funds, or anything illegal like that. That’s not why people are angry. They’re angry because we thought we had put news like this behind us. It has been only eight years since the economy collapsed and the country was nearly bankrupted. We were then forced to face uncomfortable truths about officials’ involvement in the failed banking sector, as well as about inattentive government watchdogs. Iceland may have been considered a nanny state, but the nanny was dipping into the sherry bottle hidden in the pantry."
