Tsipras: “I Did Not Betray Greek Voters Just Worded Things Differently”

tsipras surrender austerity2

BRUSSELS – Belgium – Nothing has changed with the Greeks capitulating to the EU by bending over for a four month extension of austerity.



The bruised and battered can has been kicked down the road once again as the Daily Squib accurately predicted earlier.

Keep Calm and Surrender

“It was all a lie, but I’m a politician and you voted for me to end austerity. That is not going to happen any time soon, but look at the positive side, we get another billion euro hand out to Greek banks. Now please be a good sheep and go back to sleep you gullible idiots,” the newly appointed Greek PM, Tsipras said at a news conference.

Naturally, the black hole that is the Greek economy will welcome more taxpayer money from the eurozone, and in June, there will be a rinse and repeat situation again.

“We will continue doing this drama in four month increments until the Germans run out of money eventually. We tried nearly every trick in the book to get out of paying the Greek debts but to no avail,” finance minister, Varoufakis revealed chuckling like a rabid hyena.

German Finance Minister, Schaeuble added his own voice at the post meeting conference: “The Greeks have finally seen some sense and have agreed to continue with the austerity measures. The EU taxpayers will give them some more beggars money for four months. Every time you are working in your jobs, think for one second that your hard earned money is going into their pockets for four months so they can live their privileged lifestyles of casual abandon. You must all work harder so the Greeks can carry on doing what they’re doing — nothing. We will convene in June for more of the same drama. I think I’ll take a holiday until then, not in Greece though, I like to eat food that has no spit in it.”

    Whatever happened to the eutopia of Plato’s Republic?

    • Denbo

      Eutopias do not exist. Dystopias however are all over the place.

  • percy

    I assume the greeks will have another government by June. It sickens me that the EU enabled these feckless money grabbers. We the hard working taxpayers of the Northern European countries work until 65 and the Greeks? They retire at 50 with 90% pension schemes. Varoufukis has states he wants to reinstall 2100 workers who were fired in 2012. With what? These people are living in cloud cuckoo land.

    • dremm

      dear percy you have to know something for us (dont stay in what your media presents for us, its all lies)… about pension age we must be 67 and working 40 years at least to retire.. the amount of our pension is from 350€ to 1500€ per month only (your pension i think is from 2000€ to 7000€)…Varoufakis want to reinstall 2100 workers but this because other 2100 workers will be retired soon. (we have a very expensive country for living if you compare it with our monthly salary which is 586€. (we have the most expensive soupermarkets, gas, house rent, electricity, taxes! in hole europe!) I am challenging you to come and live here in Greece for one year to see the trouth about our country! You have to stop saying what media presents for us if you want to be fair!!!!

      • dremm

        Empty fields growing nothing as farmers received vast subsidies, registered blind people driving luxury cars, cronies, corrupt. I lived in Greece for five years. If you admit you pay tax people laugh at you.It’s greek national sport. Try and do business somewhere where you have to pay each official backhanders. A friend of mine tried to get jobs but if you are not a family member you have to pay money to apply for jobs. The good state jobs all taken and they have 3 day week. Full pension and paid holiday every 6 weeks. 4 hour lunch breaks etc etc etc

    • Emile

      “These people are living in cloud cuckoo land.”

      No they’re living in Greece. You can’t change them it is foolish for EU to think the Greeks will be hard working like Germans. The technocrats are fools because not every country is equal.


    Aww Schaubles does not want to try the specially prepared Greek taramasalata? Your loss looser…

  • dremmm

    As i can see you are not getting well with Greece right??? Just remember who made you a human being in that world!!!! if we (Greeks) never existed you would still be just a monkey!!! By ignore us like this way you Just have to forget all the science we (Greeks) created like maths, geometry, physics, philosophy, medical, poetry, theatre, alphabet , languages, democrasy and other stuff that I am just bored to mention because you wiil not understand how important Greeks are in this f@@cking world!!!!

      Complex mathematics did not appear until around 3000 BC, when the Babylonians and Egyptians began using arithmetic, algebra and geometry for taxation and other financial calculations, for building and construction, and for astronomy. The earliest uses of mathematics were in trading, land measurement, painting and weaving patterns and the recording of time.

      According to Asger Aaboe, the origins of Western astronomy can be found in Mesopotamia, and all Western efforts in the exact sciences are descended from late Babylonian astronomy.[9] Egyptian astronomers left monuments showing knowledge of the constellations and the motions of the celestial bodies,[10] while Greek poet Homer wrote of various celestial objects in his Iliad and Odyssey; later Greek astronomers provided names, which are still used today, for most constellations visible from the northern hemisphere.

      There are authors who date the philosophical maxims of Ptahhotep before the 25th century. For instance, Pulitzer Prize–winning historian Will Durant dates these writings as early as 2880 BCE within The Story of Civilization: Our Oriental History. Durant claims that Ptahhotep could be considered the very first philosopher in virtue of having the earliest and surviving fragments of moral philosophy (i.e., “The Maxims of Ptah-Hotep”). Ptahhotep’s grandson, Ptahhotep Tshefi, is traditionally credited with being the author of the collection of wise sayings known as The Maxims of Ptahhotep, whose opening lines attribute authorship to the vizier Ptahhotep: Instruction of the Mayor of the city, the Vizier Ptahhotep, under the Majesty of King Isesi. The origins of Babylonian philosophy can be traced back to the wisdom of early Mesopotamia, which embodied certain philosophies of life, particularly ethics, in the forms of dialectic, dialogues, epic poetry, folklore, hymns, lyrics, prose, and proverbs. The reasoning and rationality of the Babylonians developed beyond empirical observation.The Babylonian text Dialog of Pessimism contains similarities to the agnostic thought of the sophists, the Heraclitean doctrine of contrasts, and the dialogues of Plato, as well as a precursor to the maieutic Socratic method of Socrates and Plato. The Milesian philosopher Thales is also traditionally said to have studied philosophy in Mesopotamia.

      Early records on medicine have been discovered from ancient Egyptian medicine, Babylonian medicine, Ayurvedic medicine (in the Indian subcontinent), classical Chinese medicine (predecessor to the modern traditional Chinese Medicine), and Roman medicine. In Egypt, Imhotep (3rd millennium BC) is the first physician in history known by name. The oldest Egyptian medical text is the Kahun Gynaecological Papyrus from around 2000 BCE, which describes gynaecological diseases. The Edwin Smith Papyrus dating back to 1600 BCE is an early work on surgery, while the Ebers Papyrus dating back to 1500 BCE is akin to a textbook on medicine.

      Egyptian and Mesopotamian politics relied on public debate and detailed voting procedures; countless assemblies convened
      at the thresholds of public buildings or city gates; disputed trials were submitted to superior courts; countervailing powers reminded leaders that justice was their responsibility. This was not full democracy, but the Greek version was not perfecteither. In this article, “archeopolitics” is used to contrast this efficient form of pluralistic regime (“hypodemocracy”) with truly egalitarian ones (“hyperdemocracies”)
      and group interests’ polyarchies.

      The earliest known alphabet in the wider sense is the Wadi el-Hol script, believed to be an abjad, which through its successor Phoenician is the ancestor of modern alphabets, including Arabic, Greek, Latin (via the Old Italic alphabet), Cyrillic (via the Greek alphabet) and Hebrew (via Aramaic).

      Theatre was invented by the Greeks, they like drama.

      • Graham Oborne

        It is well known in academic circles that Greeks took from other cultures and refined their own versions. This is not news.

        • Comfortably European

          Only Greeks? LOL… And now, we can continue with French or, Germans, or hmmm English, for that matter 🙂 But, Hey there are things that truly are European, and that overall is not totalitarianism! Cherish the good stuff and be proud of it ! 🙂

      • dremm

        in your text you just say 11 greek words like mathematics (μαθηματικά), arithmetic(αριθμιτική), algebra (άλγεβρα), geometry(γεωμετρία), astronomy(αστρονομία), Mesopotamia(Μεσοποταμιά), philosophical (φολοσοφική), History(Ιστορία), democracy(δημοκρατία), alphabet(αλφάβητος), Theatre (θέατρο)

        You must consider why is that happened. i am not trying to change your mind on what you believe for us but just to inform you that maybe is an other way to explain things. all of Greek history is only wars by countries that wanted to destroy us (and they never did and they never will). why dont you all europeans just stop consider of us and do your job. we can live alone without eurozone. and please if you believe all that stuff for us just never come for vacation to see my country!!!

        • Emile

          Yes, you can have the words for those things but please don’t claim to have invented the concepts. Every language has words describing things.

          Misguided arrogance is another Greek invention eh? Please research before spouting your baloney.

        • Denbo

          Dremm – The ancient Greeks did great things for the world. But modern day Greeks do a great disservice to themselves by living in the past. Modern day Greece has many serious ‘structural’ problems that needs to be addressed.

          Would you like to be “great” once again? If so then it is advisable to fix the serious problems you have.
