By The slog
Another day, another bonkers conspiracy theory from The Slog. Greece has done a deal to put the lid on the Greek crisis? Pah! Formation of Greek/Israeli/Cyprus/US alliance? Fiddlesticks!
Let’s take the deal first.
There is a tradition in Greek politics that the government of the day delivers a speech and holds a press conference during the annual Thessaloniki International Trade Fair. Organized by Helexpo, it takes place every September at the Thessaloniki International Exhibition Centre. This convention of a sounding-board for those in power has been going on since 1926. Only during the German Occupation was it interrupted.
But the Samaras government has decided to neither speak nor take questions. No explanation is being given as to why. Another email from a regular Athenian media contact:
“Something has been agreed, and whatever it is has made the bondholders and the Troika irrelevant overnight
“No crooked politician in Greece dares to attack the civil service, for obvious reasons. This is a major sticking point”.
Well this is the core problem here in Ireland as long as the incompetent Irish puppet Government hold off in dealing with the overmanned Irish civil service (in the top management positions ) and the various Quinoas we the ordinary smucks will have take the pain of the austerity measures demanded by the Troika. This is clearly an area that will eventually have to be dealt with, the question is when will the parish pump politicians get enough balls between them to do so ???
You do have to give the Greeks credit though! The managed to not pay any of their interest payments, told the Bondholders to get lost and showed Angela the two fingers as well told 300,000 German tourists to get their suntan elsewhere, and their reward was a cool 100,000,000,000 Euros taken off their debts! Meanwhile the teacher’s pet Edna was told to be a good boy and pay up and shut up!
Where are the fighting Irish I’m ready when the rest of you are! Get up off your knees Ireland!
