They are unbeatable. And eternally stuck to cliches. They cannot see beyond their nose. They run behind their tail unable to make a step forward. Trapped in the notorious Greek introversion. And they are bold to show it off right into our face. Who? The Greek ‘politicians’, of course. Although Finance Minister Yiannis Stournaras is not an elected politician but an appointed accountant who rules the country as the extended arm of the Troika.
Proving that he has absolutely no idea about the uprising background in Egypt, Stournaras linked the developments in Egypt -where the army overthrew elected president Morsi – with the possibility of a Greek bankruptcy.
Stournaras was asked to comment on the evens in Egypt. He did not hesitate to stress that Greece would have the same fate if it had gone bankrupt.
“We would be like Egypt if we had gone bankrupt and out of the euro, as some argued,” he said.
..ehm… Egypt?… errr…hm….
PS How long do we have yet to hear these non-stop nonsenses and be victims of blackmail to accept any illogical Troika demands?
Because, of course, Greece was just like Egypt before you got the euro.
oh yes. odd enough we(no money to pay electricity bills, buy food) are still like Egypt (power outage, food prices) – but we have good manners and do not revolt.
Sorry, I should have said. I was being sarcastic.
As long as the half of the population that is sucked dry on behalf of the other half does not go to the streets in their millions and stay there until there is a real solution.
Alas, as the ultimate ‘me’-society that will never happen.
Where ARE those 71.3% deemed inactive under 25 year old? Those 760,000? No they are not massively emigrating. That’s just a couple of ten thousand. With what are they so busy. Are they really suffering? Where are they…?
they are at home or cafeteria (one frappe for 5 hours) . depressed. hopeless.
You don’t have to be that “street-smart” to start worrying of what is going to happen, if the “one frappe for 5 hours” pocket money sponsoring grandparents go to Paradise and these depressed yet hopeless kids go – inevitably – to Hell … in a heavy Helladistan environment!
