C’mon You Greeks: Give The Eurocrats The Finger
I assume that, if Greece pulls out of the Euro, I’ll be able to have a week in a five star Greek hotel for £300.
And tens, if not hundreds of Brits will follow suit. Greece is God’s own country – gorgeous. The only reason people don’t go there is the high cost of everything because of the Euro.
That’s not the only reason why the Greeks should give the finger to the Eurocrats. Top Eurocrats appear arrogant beyond belief.
They don’t think the EC accounts should be signed off, they don’t seem to care about disgraceful expenses and allowances abuses and, when it comes to having to think hard and deep about a problem, they shirk it.
They’ve shilly-shallied over Greece for at least two years too long.
When British idiots like John Major and Douglas Hurd tied us into the fixed exchange rate mechanism called ERM (Exchange Rate Mechanism) in 1990 – wags dubbed it the ‘Eternal Recession Mechanism.’
They were right. UK bankruptcies soared, businesses collapsed in thousands, misery stalked the land, hope died.
And that’s what these top Eurocrats prescribe for the Greeks.
Top Eurocrats don’t think of the effect of their actions on other men. Eurocrats only think of dogma, regulations and compulsion in pursuit of their ideal State.
Men can’t live like that.Tags: compulsion, five star, hurd, recession, tens
