The EU says, "Vote for who ever you want, but do exactly what we say."

The Greek people voted against austerity – why is the EU ignoring this?






 
The whole point about this current Greek economic crisis is a simple one.
The European Central Bank, the IMF, Brussels and Berlin, are saying to the 11 million or so Greek people, that you can vote for who ever you like and elect the government of your choice, but in the end, your government and you, must do exactly what we say, without question, debate or argument.
Thank heavens that Alexis Tsipras and the Syriza government are saying "No" to the unelected and unaccountable IMF and Brussels cabal.
We should have more politicians in this country with the backbone to stand up to the dictators in Europe and Washington.
The arrogance of Christine Lagarde and her comment (in respect of next Monday's meeting) that "We do not want children in the negotiating room" sums up the contempt which she and others in the Troika have for the people of Greece and anyone else who disagrees with their "attempts to humiliate the Greek government
