Speech, Speechless (PS)

From the rostrum in front of his party members, at the Progressive Party’s bi-annual conference, the honorable PM Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson held a speech on Friday.

Now four days later, nobody knows what he meant about lifting capital controls, the main theme in his grand speech.

And he did not even attend the parliamentary session yesterday, the first after the Easter break, to answer, to translate what he meant.

The opposition could not believe their eyes. “What a prick,” is more or less what I heard one say on the radio.

But his party members attending the conference gave him 98.5 percent of the vote as chairman for the next two years.

The same number as the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un got at the Workers’ Party of Korea at their last session.
