Ordinary people often have more sense than the elite and, hopefully, the Greeks will vote against the austerity package tomorrow. Today’s 48 hour strike is a good start. Why should the Greeks accept 30 years of debt service to pay for the mistakes of bankers and the politicos who are supposed to regulate them?
It is odd that the elite of the world’s banking/political leadership think that ordinary people must pay for the banks’ failure.
It’s even odder when no explanation is offered as to why ordinary people should bail out the elite.
It’s odder still when nothing is being done to stop bankers continuing to over-pay themselves.
And it’s supremely odd when no measures have been put in place to stop it happening again.
The bankers and politicos appear to be in cahoots to screw ordinary people, so it is every ordinary person’s duty to give the finger to their governments.
