Panama Papers Explainer (fall of Iceland’s leaders)
Vox is getting to be my “go to” news summary each day. This explainer about Iceland/Panama papers is short, useful, and includes a bit of humor…
- Gunnlaugsson’s party has said it will simply name a new prime minister. But other parties might force an election. The current government was facing labor unrest and discontent long before the Panama Papers leaked.

- The likely beneficiary of new elections would be Iceland’s Pirate Party, a left-libertarian coalition that might, or might not, move the country substantially to the left.
