Icelandic Prime Minister predicts another banking crisis

 In an interview with Sky News, Iceland PM Bjarni Benediktsson speaks of the last financial crisis in Iceland and predicts a new one, although he can't say when it will happen. 

"When, I can't say. Humans make mistakes, and greed will lead people to bad decision, that will happen again."

In an exclusive interview with Sky News Benediktsson says that Iceland's actions had helped to "heal" the effects of the crisis and that he's surprised that Britain hadn't been tougher on their bankers. 

"I think there's frustration, from the outside world, that things were not at least investigated.

I'm not saying there was reason to prosecute all of those involved, but I feel that too little was done to investigate possible criminal acts elsewhere."
