Why are people in the UK not following Iceland’s example and calling for David Cameron’s resignation – or a vote of ‘no confidence’ in him?

Thousands of protestors gathered outside Iceland’s parliament on Monday after the country’s prime minister was linked to the Panama Papers.

Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson has come under increasing pressure to resign after news reports alleged that he and his wife set up a company in the British Virgin Islands with the help of a Panamanian law firm at the center of a massive tax evasion leak.

The reports have prompted calls for a no-confidence vote in parliament against him.

Police estimated that around 8,000 people – one of the largest protests seen in the capital city of Reykjavik – gathered outside the parliament building in protest.
