"We can't allow these Greek people to win"
|"The verdict of the Greek people ends, beyond any doubt, the vicious
circle of austerity in our country,"Alexis Tsipras |
The obnoxious arrogance of some European pundits is breathtaking. I have just heard a comment in respect of the Greek renegotiation of their "bailout" conditions with the Troika.The Greek election happened less than 36 hours ago and this arsehole actually said, "Of course we cant allow these Greek people to win (the negotiations) as this would be bad for Germany, Holland and others.If they (the Greek government) are allowed to win, then other governments Spain and Italy for example would be queuing up to renegotiate their bail outs".
This seems to be the dictatorial attitude of many in Germany, Brussels and the European banks, encouraged by the IMF. To Hell with the people of countries, it seems that only the banks and financiers are worthy of consideration in Europe.
If that is the way they seek to run their club, then I for one want no part of it.
