So, the Social Democratic Alliance held its national congress this weekend and by all accounts Prime Minister Jóhanna held a thunderous speech in which she pulled no punches.
Among other things, she talked about the difficulty of “tightening the ranks” within the current government coalition and said that getting some of the Left-Green MPs to support her agenda was “like trying to herd cats”.
Apparently some of the Left-Greens have not taken kindly to being likened to stubborn felines with minds of their own and are, in fact, rather offended.*
Me, I see a new breed of Icelandic dog being born: The cat-herding Icelandic politdog.
Has a ring, don’t you think?
But then again — it might just be easier on horseback.
