forced lending proposal by opposition MP (SYRIZA)
« on: May 12, 2014, 03:30:17 AM »
Manolis Glezos, a 92 year old MP with the Coalition for Radical Left (SYRIZA) proposed "forced domestic lending" as a possible way out from today's mess. The "lending" would be "volontary" for bank accounts below 100.000 euro and "compulsory" for the rich (with over 100.000 euro...).

It should be noted that Glezos is a seasoned politician running for MEP with SYRIZA and will be leaving for Brussels shortly. He promises to force Germany repay the war loan + the agreed war reparations, and doesn't give a shit about what he'll be leaving behind  ;D

I couldn't find any artcles in english (yet...) but it's all over  :o It should be noted that SYRIZA will (probably) be the next ruling party, as they are the only pro europian pro euro party left... PASOK has practically ceased to exist, eventhough its president E.Venizelos (aka Benny) is #2 in the goverment. Both ruling parties ND & PASOK owe approx...

...this is from Feb 2014  :o

In a response to a question by a Greek MEP the EU Commissioner for Competition Joaquin Almunia has effectively confirmed that PASOK and New Democracy are unable to service the 250 million euros they owe to banks.
In his written question to the Commission, Theodoros Skylakakis an MEP with the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats in Europe and leader of the small centrist party Drasi, referred to a recent admission by the Greek Minister of Labour that, together, New Democracy and PASOK have had overdue debts of 360,000 euros to the national social security organisation (IKA) since July 2013.

Even more troubling is that the two governing parties also appear to a owe a whopping 250 million to Greek banks which, following their recapitalisation are now 90% state-controlled. As was covered by an in-depth report by Reuters in September of 2012, this fact creates a clear conflict of interest with the same political parties now responsible for reforming the financial system also owing hundreds of millions to the Greek banks
