Re: And they claim Varoufakis is incompetent.....

...Well they would wouldn't they! Interesting article from "The Media Project on just this subject... It's covering ground we probably know about, but well worth a read. In reality the IMF were asking for what Varoufakis and a number of the world’s leading economists had asked for all along. No...

Re: Alexis on Yanis

I found & read this a few days ago. It's a magazine article, it's not really news based, but has, I feel, some insights into their relationship.

Re: How much of Greece's woes are founded in EU, & beyond, corruption?

Re: What is this plant?

It's defiantly an Arum, most likely Dracunculus vulgaris.

If you need to check further, this should get it down to 1 in 14...The Arum Species of Greece and Cyprus

Re: Alexis on Yanis

Although very different when viewed from outside I suspect they have a great deal of, & a deep respect for each others personal talents. They both sing from a common, professed idealogical root. They are both true Patriots, & to clarify, by that I mean a simple affinity with, & affection...

Re: Anyone Else For A (Velvet) Grexit?

Prefer a bit of rough, Steve? :shock: ... "Ooooh Matron!!".... :lol: Yes in respect of the EZ, I agree with Warwick. A design for a Union of nations, based on a single national fiscal system. I have wondered if this was by design or by lack of competence. I'm still not sure? This was my b...

Re: How much of Greece's woes are founded in EU, & beyond, corruption?

The forum has been so wonderfully active over recent time, that I missed that link filippos. Please let me know if I'm covering other "Once trodden" ground. I notice the article seemed to get overlooked a little, as the conversation moved towards inappropriate humour. Maybe it needed anoth...

How much of Greece's woes are founded in EU, & beyond, corruption?

Apologies for not joining-in before, but I lost my login details. I've been struggling to find patterns in this Cluster Farce ( :wink: ) of a situation. I'm still seeing lots of very live loose ends & gaping holes in the connection's that have been exposed by SYRIZA's approach to the usually clo...

Re: Seeking a Deal

I think you are absolutely correct Warwick. All publications have extreme difficulties, as they find it impossible to publish all the facts. There just isn't enough attention span these days for it all to be taken-in in it's entirety. The editorial process forces the Media to select carefully what i...

Yes Andrew, it's crossed my mind too. :|

There is a lot of money, ego & vested interest out there. But I suppose nothing changes unless you have the courage of your conviction?

Re: Why doesn't Greece prosecute tax evaders?

Yes indeed Clio... I like the comment in the article you linked too were it's reported that George Papandreou says:- "Falciani’s claims are “contrary to the truth.”." Interesting phrasing? Maybe it was only 450 million? My hosts never did get there referendum on the "Bailout plan"...
