Icelanders to Gordon Brown: “He said he wanted our cash, but there is no ‘c’ in the Icelandic language, so we’ve sent him our ash.”

Twisted Evil

The Prime minister invoked the Anti-Terrorism Act (2001) to freeze all Icelandic assets in the UK.

Quote:

The freezing order took advantage of provisions in sections 4 and 14 and Schedule 3 of the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001, and was made "because the Treasury believed that action to the detriment of the UK's economy (or part of it) had been or was likely to be taken by certain persons who are the government of or resident of a country or territory outside the UK."

The UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, announced that the UK government would launch legal action against Iceland over concerns with compensation for the estimated 300,000 UK savers. Geir Haarde said at a press conference on the following day that the Icelandic government was outraged that the UK government applied provisions of anti-terrorism legislation to it in a move they dubbed an "unfriendly act".
