We've had neither full blown socialism or full on liberal market capitalism - What we have had is one of the worst doses of peronist populism and cronyism in Western Europe that has pervaded our state since the 30s - but only reached its apogee since 1997 - fact
Fact indeed - and ditto on the Greek situation. I lived there in the 80s and PASOK was already a byword for corruption of a kind and extent that reminded me forcefully of FF under Haughey. Mind you that Nea Dimokratia crowd never impressed me very much either - the way themselves and PASOK squabbled always put me in mind of two pigs disputing access to the public trough.

Oh my, my, my, but hasn't the FF tune changed since the far-off days of "soft landings" and "sound fundamentals".

So now it was all inevitable all along, was it?

And I suppose that would mean... let me see... that no-one has to take any actual responsibility for it?

Funny how, no matter how the tune changes, the underlying message always stays the same!
That's because we are where we are and since we were never here before and like Christopher Columbus, we had no idea where we were going, but got there O.K. then it
will be alright on the night. What's wrong with that ? Who can show us to be wrong ?
