One response to “Lie No 1: Greeks work less than everybody else

    MERKEL AND THE GERMANS ARE TOTALLY INSANE, THE AUSTERITY PROGRAM THEY FORCED ON GREECE IS NOT A SOLUTION BUT A GUARANTEED FAILURE. SAMARAS AND VENIZELOS ARE TO WEAK TO LEAD GREECE. IS TSIPRAS THE ANSWER PROBABLY NOT BUT AT LEAST I THINK HE REALIZES THAT THE GERMAN IMPOSED “AUSTERITY” PROGRAM ONLY ADDS TO GREECE’s LOAN LOAD, IT DOES NOT REDUCE IT. SAMARAS AND VENIZELOS ARE IN DENIAL THAT THIS GERMAN IMPOSED PLAN CANNOT WORK. JOSEPH GOEBBLES (the Nazi information minister) WOULD BE VERY PROUD OF THE MERKEL ORCHESTRATED ANTI-GREEK PROPAGANDA DISSEMINATED TO THE WORLD AND MORE SO IN GERMANY.
    “austerity in exchange for more debt” trap pushed on them by the EU. THIS IS WHAT THE BAILOUT PLAN IS. TSIPRAS IS RIGHT IT MUST BE RENEGOTIATED.

    Greece Could Implode the Second Bailout and the EU by Mid-June

    Indeed, Syriza’s leader, Alexis Tsipras, didn’t even attend Monday’s coalition talks and says he will take no part in any discussions of bailouts. Young and completely fed up with calls for more austerity, Tsipras is seen by many Greeks to represent real change from the more established (and corrupt) Greek bureaucrats who continue to fall for the “austerity in exchange for more debt” trap pushed on them by the EU.
