The video below shows Iceland’s prime minister storming out of an awkward interview when he was questioned about his interests in a secret offshore firm.
Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson, came to power in 2013 on a wave of anti-banking anger after Iceland’s financial meltdown. However, leaked documents have linked him and his wife to an offshore company, which it is alleged millions were hidden while his country nearly went under.
He is facing a no-confidence vote over the revelations and did not like to be asked about it, so decided to leave the interview when the going got tough.

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
