The "political crusades" of the academic community

After the Prime Minister criticized the academic community for its "political crusades" in a TV interview, the parliamentary opposition criticized him for the remarks and also asked him in a parliamentary debate whether the report on Iceland's EU accession talks made by the Institute of International Affairs (IIA) would be discussed in the parliament. The Prime Minister agreed to discuss the report but also criticized it for having a "pre-established" conclusion, accusing the academic community of being biased towards the EU, and falsely mentioning me as one of the people working on the report, trying to undermine the report because of my connection to the IIA.

I found myself compelled to answer these accusations and wrote a response (see, Malflutningur forsaetisradherra) where I also asked the Prime Minister a few questions on his policies. They are yet to be answered.
