After following the shenanigans for several weeks one tends to glaze over a bit, and it’s hard to get exercised over anything any of them does or says. But a couple of things have had me waking up and dusting off the old protest banners.
One, was when La Lagarde, in a tete a tete with Varoufakis, advocated slashing all Greek salaries to a maximum of 700 euros a month. At around the same time she was arriving for an interview with French Vogue, to talk about her penchant for Chanel, carrying that Hermes handbag( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birkin_bag
And now we have Herr “I Love Greece!” Juncker putting forward the creditors’ cunning plan to scrap the welfare benefit for the very low-income pensioners and disabled people. Why not go the whole hog, eh, and have them all humanely put down?
The mind just boggles at the uncaring crassness of these arrogant Eurocrats in their ivory towers, with their inflated salaries and fat expense accounts, presuming to prescribe yet more austerity medicine for the Greek people.
I am cheered by the thought of that earlier out-of-touch Euro-nob, who, told that the people had no bread, asked why they couldn’t eat cake. And she didn’t last long after that.
