Iceland stirs again

No, not ash this time (and no cash either - they seem to be deaf of something) but an interesting development in the Althingi, the Icelandic Parliament, which is the oldest parliament in the world according to Wikipedia but, of course, the Isle of Man's Tynwald challenges that. (You do have to keep up with this blog, you know.)

Anyway, thanks to EU News from Iceland we know that
A proposal for a resolution will be put forward on Althingi, the Icelandic parliament, this weekend that the application for membership of the European Union should be withdrawn. It is initiated by Unnur Brá Konráðsdóttir, MP for the conservative Independence Party, and supported by a large group of MPs from various political parties represented in the parliament.
The proposal may not be voted for it this time, as the Deputies are preparing for their summer hols but it will be there, to be reprised, if necessary in the autumn.
