The Icelandic Roundup

Aug 30 2022 • 32 mins

World-famous singer and artist, Björk Guðmundsdóttir, heavily criticised the Icelandic prime minister, Katrín Jakobsdóttir, in a recent interview with The Guardian, where she said the prime minister betrayed a promise to declare a state of emergency in Iceland regarding global warming.

Valur Gretisson, editor in chief at Reyjavík Grapevine, is joined by investigative reporter from Stundin magazine, Bjartmar Oddur Þeyr Alexandersson, to discuss the singers accusations and whether or not her criticisms were valid.
