Amid collapsing banks, yo-yoing share prices and widespread insecurity it is natural to look for a culprit. The difficult bit is choosing the villain.

Iceland: which is worse, Croydon or Coventry?
You would have thought Iceland's woes were already bad enough. With the krona plunging more than 30 per cent in value in one day, its main banks teetering on the brink of disaster and residents of the once-lauded â€˜Arctic Tiger' experiencing one of the worst â€˜morning after the night befores' imaginable, they are now faced with a terrible attack of identity crisis.
The Liverpool Echo has a cool experiment on its web site that's worth a look.

It's very slow to load, but does see to work.
