Think about the career of Bjorgvin G. Sigurdsson for example. BA in history and philosophy from the University of Iceland, journalist at Vikubladid and editor of Studentabladid.

...
The responsibility of those who put Bjorgvin there, like Ingibjorg Solrun Gisladottir and Ossur Skarphedinsson is great.
...
Bjorgvin should claim victim status in further investigations into his negligence, it would suit his current image of a child in his fathers clothes. When the NY traffic controller brought his kids to work recently, it was him who got the heat, not the kids. They just didn't know any better. Bjorgvin's defence? He was just there "obeying orders", playing along, participating in a game of snakes and ladders where he had not set the rules. He was just unfortunate to have rolled the dice and landed on a snake.
These examples are everywhere in Icelandic politics. Thorgerdur Katrin Gunnarsdottir had worked for one year at a law office after graduation when she was handpicked to lead a content department within the State Broadcasting (RUV). Since then her career has been one job after another working selflessly for the party. This did not stop her from suggesting that an expert from Merrill Lynch should be re-educated for his (later to be proven absolutely correct) observations as a financial analyst. This morning, Thorgerdur brushed away questions on the radio regarding her husband's billions borrowed from Kaupthing to buy shares in the bank itself saying this had nothing to do with her. Not realising that she personally stood to benefit from these loans, suggests that re-education might just be beyond such a hardened political trench-warmer herself. She has never been brought up by the system in which she excelled to accept responsibility, only to enjoy the gains.
