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).

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.

"I am very sorry for what happened to the Icelandic financial sector," said Mr Sigurdsson, a Social Democrat who became minister in May 2007.
...
Iceland's Foreign Minister, Ingibjorg Solrun Gisladottir, said that Mr Sigurdsson's resignation was unexpected and it was too early to tell who would replace him.
