Politic made by a spoon of joke and some crap things

🎯Worthwhile

Politicians in Europe are more afraid of financial markets than of their own people.
The mayor of Reykjavík, Jón Gnarr Kristinsson, is a comedian; his party, the Best Party, became popular by parodying ruling politicians. In a pleasant combination of dispassionate rationality and raving madness, Iceland—a state with the population of a small city—seems a laboratory for reinventing politics.
His weapon is comedy, and what makes it effective is its natural juxtaposition to both the pompous “common sense” of technocratic bailout rule and the perverted, corrupted oligarchy of Berlusconi.
