War with Iceland averted

It's smiles all round as a deal is agreed to repay the UK government for the retail deposits lost when Icesave collapsed. The UK will unfreeze Icelandic bank assets on June 15th. Phew. We can turn round the gunboats.

Councils will have to wait though - this deal only applies to retail accounts.
