About 75% of Iceland’s voters turned out on Saturday to reject the Social Democratic-Green government’s proposal to pay $5.2 billion to the British and Dutch bank insurance agencies for the Landsbanki-Icesave collapse. Every one of Iceland’s six electoral districts voted in the ‘No’ column – by a national margin of 60% (down from 93% in January 2010).

UK Uncut’s Chartist parallels By Keith Flett

Morning Star

The UK Uncut occupation of Fortnum & Masons over tax avoidance concerns and the more robust attacks on West End shops that took place in the wider context of the 500,000 strong TUC March for the Alternative last month have provoked quite a political debate.

One piece in The Guardian argued that there has been a moral and physical force element of popular protest in the British labour movement since the days of Chartism in the 1840s.

The reality is a little more complex.

12 April 2011 — RT
