A Brilliant Day. Does he classify as a Trojan?

Gay marriage, fabulous dinner, great time- but I’ve got to hand it to Mr. Tsipras, that was the best political move I’ve seen, E-V-E-R.

He let the European right led by Germany do their thing. He let the Greek right do their thing- and now the people get to decide. Check mate.

If you’re curious look up how much EU banks (UK, France, Germany- and even Spain) made by speculating on the Greek debt crisis. Exploiting it. The great Spanish austerity recovery means that the richest 10% are richer than ever, the unemployment rate, however, remains at 25% (on a good day!) The recovery is a sham whereby the money pumped into the banks has multiplied for shareholders whilst services around the board were cut for the little people paying into the system.It’s clever, but the new Greek government might be just a little bit more clever.

I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

    Now let’s hope that the Greeks have the guts to tell the Troika and the IMF where to go….

      If they do, it’ll be the turning point. The first time since the crisis where the people actually responsible for the mess get a slap-down.

    I don’t really understand the economics, or politics, behind all this but the Greek people have my sympathy. Let them speak. πŸ™‚

    What if the Greek people vote to accept the further austerity measures; where does that leave Syriza? As I understand it, the people largely want to remain within the Eurozone, and now they have to decide whether the cost of membership is worth paying. I think they should vote it down, default, leave the EU and begin growing on their own terms. Spain and Portugal to follow? Another empire bites the dust.

      I think Syriza would fall. In situations like this it should be up to the government to defend the well-being of the people. They managed to do that in Iceland. In the EU all the ‘solutions’ were related to financing the markets at the expense of the people.
      They keep taking about recovery, but where is it exactly? In Germany’s mini-jobs? The UK’s zero hour contracts? All I see is people being pushed lower and lower down the ladder and policies that will ensure they can never climb up again.
