Some might say, the Greeks are up to their old tricks again.
The Trojan Horse this time is the entire Greek People ! The new Greek God politicians, Apollo – Tsipras and Hermes – Varoufakis, have set up the Greek People as their modern offering to the EU – the EU Horse.
The Greeks promise to the Barbarian Europeans that their EU Horse contains the great Greek gifts: Demogoguery, Democracy (and, what else, Deceipt).
Apollo plays the lyre song: “I see a beautiful country and a brilliant people rising from this EU created abyss, and, in their struggles to be truly free from EU oppression. I see the evil of this Troika time and the Institutions making expiation for their illegitimate profiteering.”
Oh EU accept that gift horse and see what you get !
You get to let Greece treat you to a feast where you eat € 320 billion Euros of your taxpayers’ money; and beg forgiveness from Greece for it being forced to take that money from you.
You get to ‘drive good money out with bad’ for having printed € 100 billion Euros backed by Greek Sovereign Debt Instruments not worth the paper they were printed on; and make your taxpayers pay for it.
You get to make another “loan – gift” of € 50 + billion Euros to show that your “sorry” is sincere.
Oh EU, “it is a far, far better thing that you do, than you have ever done; it is a far, far harder work and taxation for your peoples than they have ever known.”
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
