Don't do it Iceland !

Apparently Iceland is having to consider joining the Euro and EU due to the banking crisis.

Even the fishermen ( so the BBC tells us ) are softening in their traditional opposition - making the Cod War a bit pointless.

I have a message for the people of Iceland - don't do it ! There are only 300,000 people in Iceland if they join the EU they will lose:

  1. Fishing grounds.
  2. The ability to govern themselves.
  3. Control over immigration - it won't take long for the country to be swamped by people with a different religion and culture ( see Sweden ).

If you have to throw yourselves on a foreign powers mercy try the following: 1) Norway, 2) Canada, 3) The US, 4) Russia - all of them will leave you with more of your country than if you are absorbed by the EU.

You were warned.
