^^^^ Nice to see you happy, Lordo. :D

The Germans are feeling the accusations of once again being responsible for threatening Europe. :idea:

In an effort to balance the people's views that it is GREECE who is on the path to restore Peace and Prosperity to Europe by them 'allowing' Greece to (finally) draw-up their OWN reforms, Schäuble had this to say, today ...

"We Germans must do everything to keep Europe together."

LOL - I thought Germans didn't have a sense of humour! :D

OMG - The Germans are human! Today's meeting:

This is what Gregor Gysi (parliamentary group Head) said about the German-made Austerity measures:

" ...it as a “kamikaze policy, " yup!

- and then Gysi followed it up with :

"Syriza is the first government in Europe that has challenged neoliberal policies"

- and in case anyone didn't know already, Gysi added:

"90% of the bailout money is going to French and German banks"

Nice one, Gysi! :D

All Greece needs now is for Spain et al to show the same level of bravery ...


Podemos (“We Can”), Spain’s answer to Greece’s Syriza party have joined Greece in the anti-austerity drive ... :D

Spanish anti-austerity party Podemos wins 15 seats in Andalusia

Regional parliamentary election weakens Spain’s two-party system in Podemos’s first test since ally Syriza won Greek elections

Congratulations sister Spain. :)

So 2015 could finally be the year when austerity meets its reckoning across the continent. Or it could be the year that a democratic challenge to economic madness was strangled to death. It is a game of high stakes in which the futures of millions of people could be decided.

Yawn!!!

Same story churned out by the BBC every 3 months. As I've said before, it's all about taking it to the brink of a threatened "Grexit" (how many years have they been telling us this one?), the hedge fund managers make trillions betting on it, then it's all sorted at the "last minute" and then they make billions on interest from the Greeks. Same old same old same old story!

Greece and Cyprus are being made to pay the price of needing to be part of this larger Union because of the constant threat from frigging Turkey. They know we are stuck between a rock and a hard place and they are making Greece pay first and then Cyprus pay second. Do not laugh at Greece, Cap, because whatever Greece suffers today, Cyprus will suffer tomorrow!

We need to support Greece to break this cycle - which will help everyone in the long term. Greece is our only hope!

Exactly. That's why we need to take measures to prevent contamination.
We've done well to isolate ourselves from the contagion thus far.

Well done CY.

It's not up to Cyprus. It's pre-planned - they know who they can tap and why they can get away with it by tapping Greece and Cyprus - we both have the problem of Turkey.

They can treat Cyprus and Greece as strictly as they like - more so than Spain or Portugal - because we have to stay in the EU to avoid further Turkish encroachments. But, the EU needs to continue as well, so Greece and Cyprus can only get pushed so far. Which is why we have these oscillating games.

And, that's why Greece has to find a way to break the stranglehold (Russia destroying Turkey would be a start).

Don't be lulled into a false sense of security about Cyprus. As I said, it's oscillations - when Cyprus' turn comes around again (it will) we shall have the same problem of a squeeze and then idiots like you will blame Greece when it has NOTHING to do with Greece and everything to do with the IMF and ECB.

Russia had its chance to destroy Turkey in the 1920s but it backed down:

Was this because of common "anti-colonial struggles" or was it because they viewed Islam as a threat? Stirring U.S. style :oops:
