It goes without saying that Doddsson is one of the key players in the 3000-page report.
Some might say that he’s simply bowing out graciously to give his staff at Morgunblather some time to come to grips with the extreme awkwardness of their situation — i.e. how they are going to report the report in which their boss is most severely implicated.
However, if that were the case, methinks he’d have to be away for quite some time, seeing as how it’s going to take the nation, and the media, weeks months to digest and come to terms with its contents.
Incidentally, Althingi [parliament] sent out a press release today, for anyone who is waiting for Monday morning with bated breath:
The Special Investigation Commission will hold a press conference on its report at 10:30 on Monday 12th of April. A webcast will be available at althingi.is. A summary and excerpts in English will be available at sic.althingi.is at the same time.
I’m thinking this thing better live up to its hype, or we may have a serious revolution on our hands.
