Iceland to apply for EU membership

Icelandic parliament agreed in a vote to apply for European membership.There was not an inter party agreement, so the party lines did not hold, and a majority of 33 votes to 27.This is a big day in our nations history and finally things could be going towards a more positive time.

It has been negative, corrupt and Iceland has been far to isolated, but this day marks the beginning of a future with hope, something so many have not seen for a long time in Iceland.

A good day, and for once and smart decision by the government and parliament.

The propaganda of anti EU supporters was grim, but sanity prevailed.
