Should Iceland Join The EU? YES - 27.3% ; NO - 57.6%

Tyler Durden's picture

There was one, just one, country that escaped the bankster Mutually Assured Destruction singularity force field in 2009 and after destroying the financial overhang and starting from scratch, has become a paragon of growth in the New Global Depressionary Normal. Iceland (profiled most recently here). As such, what Iceland says is signal, and what the legacy masters of the abovementioned New Normal repeat day after day, is recurring noise. Here is the signal: when Icelanders were asked if they should join the EU, this is what they responded:

  • YES - 27.3%
  • NO - 57.6%

Just like with the elections, I was forced to 'write in' a candidate because HELL NO wasn't on the ballot...

redpill's picture

Apparently there's 27% who breathed in a bit too much ash from eyjafjallajökull

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

What about the 15.1% who (I guess) voted maybe/maybe not/sorry, too busy texting/what day is it/which one is 'the voice'?

<Cus 27.3% and 57.6% don't add up.> 

redpill's picture

Maybe they were too busy laughing at the question to answer?  That would be my response.

I bet they voted by hand and did not use touch screen voting.

macholatte's picture


Maybe they used US voting machines provided by a Soros subsidiary. The NO votes became YES for 27%..... just like what happend on Nov 6.

Liberals. They are always around 30% of any given population.

The E.U. would be smart to join Iceland, not the other way around.

holdbuysell's picture

What are the 27.3% thinking!?

GetZeeGold's picture


Same thing the 47% are thinking.

vast-dom's picture

i think in Iceland the 47% is really the 27%. put another way, it's still disconcerting: 1 out of every 2 want to be in the Euro???¿¿??? maybe they have like a Nokia ObamaPhone equivalent they're jonzing for.....

27% of the folks in Iceland are foaming-at-the-mouth globalists whose ideological slavery blinds them to the obvious realities of the world around them.

Good for Iceland for having such a small number of the fools.

watch Max Keiser discussing capital controls and the artificial world with Icelandic Krona being a trapped currency:

The Icelandic situation may be a result of neo liberal investment ideology where the goverment cannot spend money into existence to increase internal productive capacity.

Indeed the only reason why you should get into external debt is to increase internal productive capacity , the Irish (banks) got into external debt to give non productive assets (houses) to people so that they could earn a yield from external real capital rundown (North sea oil mainly)

They have cheap electricity in Iceland
Why not build a tram to link the burbs of Reykjavik ?ík

Its a no brainer – they spend so much of their income on diesel for their 4 * 4s just to go to the shop rather then their second home out in the icelandic wilderness.

They should follow Bergens example



  1. Diesel oil demand has not recovered from its highs

    People are not driving their 4*4s on the icelandic plateau anymore I guess
    Just to the shop and diesel for the trawlers……..

    Although maybe this metric shows people are staying in their second homes again.

I'm not sure they have such a small number of fools.  That's 27% with the Eurozone disintergrating right in front of their eyes.

There, Tyler fixed it for you...


edit: You edited just as I posted...

Frastric's picture

These figures are muddled... So are the Icelandic people in favour or not of joining the EU?

Edit: Figures are consistant now!

You fucked the bankers once my Icelandic friends.

Dont let the scum have another go for fucks sake.  Tell them to fuck off, and then burn them, after hanging and gutting them like.

_ConanTheLibertarian_'s picture

Better, throw them in the Eyjafjallajökull

Doubleguns's picture

Please no. Last trip to Iceland we chipped some glacier ice from there and used it in toasts of Hennesy. I would not want that ice polluted with corpses.

Inthemix96's picture

No doubleguns,

Gutting then burning is fine with me, saves money fron the state, see?

Icelandic bankers are worldclass.

Ask not, what we can do for Iceland, but what Iceland can do for us.


DaveyJones's picture

They've done quite a bit, it's up to us now to do more than watch

Instead, I read this WSJ headline today (might as well repeat it every fortnight)

"The SEC doesn't intend to charge any individuals in its planned enforcement action against JP Morgan for the allegedly fraudulent sale of mortgage bonds, though the bank will pay a significant fine."

Allegedly? Normally you do not enforce or pay a significant fine for nothing more than an allegation. That said, I wonder what percentage of this scheme's profit is relative to their "punishment?"

I'm so tired of this shit 

Azannoth's picture

It's really surprising how many said yes, considering Icelands experience

A Lunatic's picture

So how did the remaining 73% vote?



THE DORK OF CORK's picture


The 27% comes from their Irish / Scottish stock of females that they brought over during the settlement phase.


The Faroe islands is a interesting island experiment.......


As explicitly asserted by both Rome treaties, the Faroe Islands are not part of the European Union. Moreover, a protocol to the treaty of accession of Denmark to the European Communities stipulates that Danish nationals residing in the Faroe Islands are not to be considered as Danish nationals within the meaning of the treaties. Hence, Danish people living in the Faroes are notcitizens of the European Union (although other EU nationals living there remain EU citizens). The Faroes are not covered by the Schengen free movement agreement, but there are no border checks when travelling between the Faroes and any Schengen country. (The Faroes have been part of the Nordic Passport Union since 1966, and since 2001 there have been no border checks between the Nordic countries and the rest of the Schengen area as part of the Schengen agreement.)[7]

I think we allow New England, including NYC, to join the EU. California can join ASEAN and go begging China for bailout money.

America's problem solved.

ultraticum's picture

I'm sure the EU would love the New England socialists . . . . but the ASEAN wouldn't touch Kalifornia with a 10 foot pole (unless all the Kalifornia idiots were shipped to communes in New England).  There, problem solved again!

Inthemix96's picture

On the other conspiratorial hand mind.

How many of our yiddish friends occupy more than their fair share of power over 300,000 people?

Can anyone riddle me this?  This smells of either the kikes or the politicians.  Anyway, tell them to fuck off Iceland, and for fucks sake, dont end up like us.  Burn the fuckers if need be.

Inthemix96's picture

Oh dear........

I do believe I may have upset someone on this here thread.  I dont know but it may be a closet hebe?

Ring a bell anyone???

Thats 85%, what do the other 15% want to do?

Drink vodka?

So ~ 27 out of every 100 Icelanders are jew bankers... Whocoodanode?

NoDebt's picture

My short list of countries to move to when it gets too bad here just grew by one.

Wasn't sure the bankers would let Iceland get away with throwing them the middle finger, but it looks like they did.  No big whoop.  World didn't end for them.  They aren't shut out of international credit markets, either. 

Am I about to say that we should take inspiration from Iceland?  Well, let's not go too far here.  That's just crazy talk.

JimBowie1958's picture

Dont worry, the EU will just have the ICelanders vote on joining the EU over and over till they get it 'right'.
