Ólafur's outing...

He's trying to get in my good books now! Will there be a bun-fight at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland where Iceland's longest-serving president president Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson is going to speak...and where Gordon Brown will also be a guest speaker? The bun-fight could ensure because, as the Reykjavik Grapevine reports, Ólafur told Sky News yesterday:
"The Gordon Brown government decided, to its eternal shame, to put the Icelandic government on a list of terrorist states and terrorist phenomena. We were there together with Al Qaeda and the Taliban on that list."
He added that Crash Gordon would be remembered in Iceland "long after he has been completely forgotten in Britain", hmmm, I doubt that; as Guido says, "Not sure Gordon will ever be 'completely forgotten'"!

He'll be the Icelandic bogey man and pass into mystic legend like the trolls under the bridge.

hahaha. They do like their legends and Brown is most certainly more of a troll than an elf!.
