Bloomberg reports the comments of a Reykjavik shopkeeper who says a "No" vote,

"will be a wakeup call for the citizens in other countries. They’ll realize that there’s no fairness in pushing bank losses onto taxpayers when things go sour, but pocketing the gains when everything is going well. A big fat ‘no’ from Iceland will drive that point home.”

This is gonna get even more interesting, the UK and the Netherlands are going to sue Iceland in order to recover £3.5 Billion lost when Icelands major banks took a crap.

Quote:The UK said it was "disappointed" by the "no" vote, while the Dutch finance minister said the time for negotiations was "over".

Iceland's Finance Minister Steingrimur Sigfusson said that resolving the row in court would take at least a year.

It's all fun and games until the debt collection agency starts calling 30 times a day.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

They are gonna sue for their money? Maybe we should all join together in a class action suit and sue for our bailout tax dollars. Too big to fail? No, just too big.

Quote:...the Netherlands has said that after the country's second rejection by referendum of an agreement intended to resolve a bitter banking dispute between the Hague and the small island, there is now "no way" Iceland will be able to join the European Union.
