Economics & Politics collide in Greece

The Greeks have been bludgeoned into submission by the Huns. Watch out Europhiles it could be us next. Germans either fawn at your feet or have their jackboot on your neck. There is no middle way with the Germans.

Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman has described it thus:

 "The trending hashtag ThisIsACoup is exactly right," he wrote. "This goes beyond harsh into pure vindictiveness, complete destruction of national sovereignty, and no hope of relief.
"It is, presumably, meant to be an offer Greece can’t accept; but even so, it’s a grotesque betrayal of everything the European project was supposed to stand for."

Among other elements of the EU proposals that outraged some commentators was a suggestion that some 50 billion euros ($56 billion) of Greek public assets be placed in an independent trust based in Luxembourg, out of reach of Greek politicians, the proceeds of which from privatisations would go directly to pay off debts.
Wow! That is a Juncker take over!
The hashtag appeared to originate on Sunday evening from Sandro Maccarrone, who describes himself as a physics teacher from Barcelona. He tweeted: "The Eurogroup proposal is a covert coup d'etat against the Greek people. #ThisIsACoup."
Pictures tweeted with the hashtag included Schaeuble branded with a swastika and the blue European flag with its circle of gold stars rearranged into the same Nazi symbol. Common, too, were images from Germany's World War Two occupation of Greece.
The EU stars have been rearranged into a Swastika.

This will generate a huge and well merited anti German backlash on a a democracy before money theme.

But what will our Fuerher N Farage do?

This appears as his statement on Twitter

Well what are you waiting for Nigel? There are plenty of flights to Athens you could get on and support the Greeks on the ground.

As the very clever Maria Margaronis says:

" How many times can the Germans be allowed to destroy Europe?"
