REYKJAVIK, Iceland (AP)-- In a dramatic about-face, Icelandic voters have returned to power the center-right parties that led the national economy to collapse five years ago.
With most votes counted early Sunday, the conservative Independence Party and rural-based Progressive Party — who governed Iceland for decades before the 2008 crash — each had 19 seats in Iceland's 63-seat parliament, the Althingi.
The parties, who are promising to ease Icelanders' economic pain with tax cuts and debt relief, are likely to form a coalition government.
Silly Libtard, You think anyone right of you is a conservative but to get to us Conservatives you first have to pass through the moderate Liberals, then the Centrists, than the Center right and then you finally get to us Conservatives.<quoted text>
Another country run aground by conservatives, and who would believe it, just as the centre-left parties had brought Iceland back from the economic brink, they vote the inept conservatives back in.
I think you may have misunderstood the meaning of what you posted, Rogue. In order for you to "get it", the conservatives, like in the US, precipitated Iceland into the economic morass it found itself in, to the edge of default and collapse of its banking system. Had you understood that, you would not have posted it.
The fact is that over the past 30 odd years Iceland has been ruled by the left and it is YOU lefties who have spent your country into the poor house. You need to take you blinders off!
