What a laugh! They stitch up everyone and then one rogue member decides to consult the people. What!? Consult the bloody people? What the hell have they got to do with it? We are politicians and we never consult the people...we routinely lie to them, particularly at election time, but we never represent them.
Don't get me wrong, the Greek President has no chance of implementing his referendum on the brand new EU plan to save their currency (ie beg the Chinese for money) He will be bullied and battered (just like the Irish were) and as usual the EU bullies will win. It is however another example of their desperation to keep the public under control.
Nothing will change, we will all eventually go to hell in a handcart to save the EURO but at least we are seeing the lengths that 'Merkozy' will go to hold onto power. The Greeks are the most militant of our European 'partners'. They are also the most exposed to world finance. Membership of the EU has been a disaster for the Greeks. I wonder if they will realise it.
One final thought... the Footsie responded positively to the original EU plan...it didn't take long for them to get back to normal. The professionals know that 'Merkozy' preside over a disaster zone which unfortunately will eventually change all our lives.
