“It is true to say that every six weeks we have an election in Greece, where we say that the world economy is being held ransom by a bunch of strutting apes. In reality Greece accounts for a mere 2% of the EU’s GDP, but this is neither here or there, it is a wonderful distraction to what is really going on, like financial f*cking Armegeddon by kicking the can down the road every time,” Alexi Sliltheratis, a Greek political commentator told the Aegean Herald last night.
The Greek farce is an altogether amusing circle of events where one faction is ousted every six weeks, then another is introduced promising great things, then the same people who were first ousted are re-elected. Rinse and repeat, and keep prolonging the misery of ordinary Greeks while you are at it.
Thanks to this ludicrous farce, it is not only the ordinary Greek people who are suffering because Greece is not removed from the Eurozone, but the rest of the world’s economy suffers as well due to the vast increased market volatility.
By the time this is over, your pension should be worth about fifty quid, if you’re lucky, seeing as it is all linked to the stock markets. The longer the madness of a Greek euro is prolonged, the worse the final result will be.
Thanks to the bungling contemptible oafs who claim to be looking after the eurozone, we will all be stuck in this mess until the final chaotic denouement.
See you all in six weeks time, and six weeks after that, and that, and that…
