Icesave polls

with one comment

According to opinion polls in Iceland 60,7% support the decision of the Icelandic president to send the Icesave agreement to a referendum – and 57,7% said they would vote for the agreement. If that were the case, the agreement would comfortably go through.

Last time there was a referendum, the government didn’t move a finger to get people to vote and the PM didn’t even vote. They seemed to think from the beginning that they would be able to get a better agreement. This time, there really isn’t anything else on the table. This time, it will be interesting to see if the government throws its weight behind the agreement. The Dutch government has announced that it’s waiting for the results of the referendum but that the agreement is the final offer.
