No, Greece had a referendum to leave the euro, not the EU. The Greeks voted to leave the Euro, then the government did a volte face and stayed in the EU, which is currently trampling all over everything in the name of austerity–or ‘lining the pockets of the bankers who caused this in the first place’ as it really is. Greece, of course, fiddled the books with the help of the banks who are squeezing it dry right now to join the euro. The poor are paying the price and eating out of bins and the like as the rich people (the ones who benefited from the artificial price inflation that came with the EU, the unwarranted credit) simply shifted their money to other nations. Suicide rates have gone up, of course, and I’ve seen some of the riots myself.
My favorite riots are the ones where the farmers do it, because they usually have a BBQ and paint pigs the colors of political parties and let them run around. I shouldn’t have to point out the obvious implications. Of course there’s a trough, somewhere.
Brexit will not happen, as David Cameron–another pig lover–was a buffoon who wanted to make political history. Now he’s pigging it up on the speaker circuit. May won’t let it happen as this third-rate Maggie can’t let it happen. Anyway, just like the Greek referendum, we shall see that it was merely a “suggestive vote” that was whipped up into more than the sum of its parts.
Indeed, a criminal was stopped by the police in Athens yesterday (he shot a woman in the bakery for the… ooh, meager takings in the register). He shot at them, then ran off and shot himself because he didn’t want to go back to jail. Fair enough really, Greek jails aren’t very nice.
I’ve seen the English-speaking media reports screaming about those immigrants. Speaking of the EU, you do know that the glorious EU told the Greek government last year to keep the migrants away at all costs–“throw them back into the sea”. You realize that dead little boyo n the Turkish coast’s body had been manipulated? You realize that the EU has forced Greece to erect what I can only call concentration camp equivalents to hold all these people together? In part, this is because there is no money (see: EU) and the EU is refusing to provide funds for a (EU) crisis.
It’s not a fascinating situation at all. It has been engineered from the very beginning. Greece cannot leave the EU. It may want to, but it is being bullied into submission. Just as Brexit is, slowly but surely. The peasants had their pointless revolt, now it’s time to get back to the status quo. If anyone thought that Brexit would be better, I need only point out how life in the UK has declined significantly of late. That’s not a two-party issue, that’s a systematic deconstruction issue from all three parties, which even that nice man (or buffoon) Mr Clegg was a part of.
Italy is probably going to try and leave next, as one of its major banks (Pascha Dei–sp) needs a bailout, and the PM has already resigned. Rumblings in France, NL Portugal and Spain don’t look too good either. Let’s gloss over the fact that now-EU President Juncker is the ex-President of Luxembourg, has the shadows of that tax controversy in his native country hanging over him, and his colleagues are just as bent and corrupt.
Across the pond, George Bush Sr. got it right the first time when he said “if the American people knew what we have done, they would string us up from the lamp posts”.
Luckily for most politicians of every county or corrupt supranational institution in thrall to the call of filthy lucre, most people are too self-absorbed to bother with discovering what’s going on.
Like Fiverr, I view most of the modern world with a very jaded eye. It’s a little intriguing that we now have a staff member on site asking questions–but my question is really, is this going anywhere and will our suggestions be listened to? Because they certainly aren’t anywhere else. We are but plebeians at the end of the day.
