Silver lining

Iceland is benefiting from the euro-mess that is engulfing Greece, the eurozone, the PIIGS and the whole of the EU in that order. Hjörtur J. Guðmundsson tells us on the very useful EU News blog (he assures me that he will be blogging a lot more in the near future) that Icelandic business is turning away from the notion of EU membership.
New poll which was released in Iceland today shows that about 60 percent of the leading people of Icelandic companies believe that Iceland is better placed economically outside the EU. Only 31 percent think the country would be better placed within it. This is in line with the last polls on the attitude of Icelanders in general towards EU membership.
Well, who wants to end up bailing out those PIIGS?
