The president of Iceland says that his nation will never forgive Gordon Brown after it was hit with financial sanctions. The President of Iceland has launched an extraordinary verbal attack on Gordon Brown on the fringes of the World Economic Forum in Davos.
Olafur Ragnar Grimsson, the country’s longest-serving president,said that his country would “never forget” its treatment during the financial crisis at the hands of the former British prime minister. During the financial crisis, following the collapse of Icelandic bank Icesave and Iceland’s refusal to refund UK deposits, Britain took the rare step of imposing financial sanctions on the country.
Mr Grimsson said: “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. “We have not forgotten that in Iceland.”
“Gordon Brown will be long remembered in my country for centuries to come, long after he has been completely forgotten in Britain.”
