So, old Davíð Oddsson is now happily installed as the new Editor-in-Chief of Morgunblaðið.
I haven’t seen the paper since I cancelled my subscription last Friday [- oops, a lie! I saw it Saturday because clearly there was a lag in the system and it was delivered to us], but according to Iceland’s most popular blogger Egill Helgason, today’s editorial is all about how terrible it would be if capital gains tax were increased.*
There is also a news item, based on an old report from some foreign institution, about how there is no corruption in Iceland.
It’s good to know that old Davíð is wasting no time erasing rewriting history. I guess some of us are just above the pesky constraints of the truth.

A COOL, DAMP AND BLUSTERY DAY
With fairly winds from the west, around 8 metres per second. We’ve had a total of 1 mm of rain so far and it’s been cloudy pretty much all day. Right now it’s 7°C [45F] and sunrise was at 7.29 this morning, sunset due for 7.04 this evening.
