Icelandic Pirate Get together MP pressured to put on eyepatch
A member of parliament from the Pirate Get together in Iceland was pressured to put on an eyepatch for a tv look following a weird family accident.
Eva Pandora Baldursdottir wrote on her Fb wall that her one-year-old daughter “scratched my eye, which implies I’ve to put on an eyepatch over the weekend,” Reykjavik Grapevine reports.
“That would not be a problem if it wasn’t for the truth that I’ll a TV debate tonight,” she mentioned.
“In fact be carrying my lovely eyepatch,” she mentioned of her impending look on Iceland’s Stod 2 channel.
The Pirate Get together, which bases its insurance policies on civil rights, free sharing of data and direct democracy, holds 10 out of 63 seats within the Althing, Iceland’s parliament.
They’re the third largest get together within the nation, primarily based on dimension of vote within the 2016 elections.
Eva was not the one Icelandic politician to fall sufferer to family accidents this week, with the information that the nation’s president Gudni Thorlacius Johannesson broke his nostril and gashed his brow in a rest room fall.
Gudni instructed his Fb followers that he fainted after a “scorching and cosy bathtub, which was most likely too scorching and cosy”, Iceland Monitor reports.
Thanking native hospital workers for caring for him, he says he is feeling high quality regardless of pictures of subsequent official conferences clearly exhibiting a scar above his eye.
