Elín Hirst, MP for Iceland’s Independence Party (‘Sjálfstæðisflokkurinn’), one of the two parties in the governing coalition, goes further and describes the government’s current contribution, i.e. fifty refuges, as “shameful”. “Countries like Iceland should step up and help,” writes Hirst in a Facebook status. “I shall be bringing up the matter in Parliament and within the parliamentary party.” As regards numbers, she simply says, “Maybe ten times more [i.e. 500] would be nearer the mark.”
Elín was a member of the board of directors of the Icelandic division of UNESCO from 2002 to 2004.
