Iceland leading the way
#1
History professor Gudni Johannesson won Iceland's presidential election with 39.1 percent of votes after the Panama Papers blew apart the establishment. He is unaffiliated, as was the second-place finisher, businesswoman Halla Tomasdottir, who took 29.4 percent.

The position is largely ceremonial - and legislative elections are forthcoming shortly. The President has veto powers, which were never used until the last one who is stepping down. Only 335K people in Iceland, and many of them are going to France on Monday to watch their soccer team play England in its first major international competition. They beat Austria to make it into the round of 16. Iceland is not part of the EU, and are thankful for it.

Yep, that Global Paradox just keeps picking up steam.

This isn't going to stop. Bureaucrats beware! And if DC doesn't get its shit together, it will strike here in ways we never imagined.

Only 335K people in Iceland, and... and it's taken as a model for nations like Germany, UK or the whole EU block by anti-austerity leftists, euro-skeptics, right-wing etc.

There is a joke by the icelandic minister explaining how they found 21 soccer players: They counted out all women and children, all disabled, all fishers and governement workers, all aged more than 35 years olds, and those left were exactely 21. S5
They still beated England 2-1.
Nigel farrage can celebrate: England is already out of the EURO as soccer is concerned!
