Did you see the following comment in the financial section of The Times on Saturday 18 2008?:

‘Things can’t be all that bad in Iceland. Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander managed to host two tables at Thursday night’s AIM awards and sponsored the best newcomer category. Such benevolence did not stop Newsnight’s Emily Maitlis, the compere, from having a crack at the impoverished island. “What’s the capital of Iceland?” she asked. Answer? “About £2.50. Mind you, it’s clearly getting worse. I heard that joke last week and the punch line was £4.50.’
