Europhiles in Iceland have been experiencing a rough time since it was revealed last Monday that Iceland has adopted less than 6,5 percent of EU regulations, directives, etc. through the EEA agreement since signing it a decade ago. Until now the pro-EU movement in Iceland has claimed that this number was around 80 percent and even in some cases up to 90 percent. This has been one of the key arguments of the pro-EU movement for years, claiming that because of this Iceland could just as well join the EU. But now it has been revealed that these claimes have been entirely groundless.
Setback for the European Movement in Iceland
A big blow for the pro-EU movement in Iceland!
