As you know, the EU won the Nobel Peace Prize for bringing “peace” to Europe post WW2 (Let’s not mention NATO lest it burst a liberal bubble) so, how’s it goin’ in Euroland?
“Greece is braced for a 48-hour general strike across public and private sectors in protest at a proposed new wave of spending cuts. (How would anyone know Greece is on strike?)
Protest marches – which regularly end in running battles with police – are planned for the centre of Athens. The action coincides with a debate in parliament on the austerity measures, with a vote by MPs due on Wednesday. Greece must back the measures, and the 2013 budget, to receive the next part of a bailout and avoid bankruptcy.”
Rubbish. Greece is already de facto bankrupt but the Euro pretence is to keep kicking the can down the road whilst carefully dismantling even the veneer of democracy, which you have to admit is kinda ironic when one considers Greece is where that all started! The disconnect between the will of the Greek people and the wishes of their Euro masters could not be more explicit,
