Will he be back? – EU’s Terminator Yanis Varoufakis (image source)
Now that our hero of recent weeks Yanis Varoufakis has resigned, accepting that he is persona non grata at the negotiating tables of Europe after thwarting the Troika’s attempts to suppress an IMF report that confirmed the Greek government assertion that bail out terms on offer were unfair and unworkable, what next.
Varoufakis’ resignation, in the style and with the impeccable timing that shows us who the real men are, we must now ask whom the smooth faced girlie – men formerly on the other other side of the table will throw to the lions.
Greece’s new finance minister, Euclid Tsakalotos, should not have to face the same petulant, unreasoning dogmatists as were truly responsible for Europe’s painful hammering Greek voters handed out in yesterday’s referendum.
That would be an utter disgrace, and the EU would not survive it (not that the EU is likely to survive a Grexit, which will certainly prompt other Eurozone awkward squad members to rebel.
So we now call on Juncker, Lagarde, Schäuble, Dijsselbloem, Draghi, Merkel and Gauleiter Schulz, if not to do pull a Coriolanus stunt by falling on their swords, to at least do the decent thing and fuck off.
It cannot be right that the winner leaves and all the losers get to stay in the game (or more accurately at the trough, with their snouts immersed.
The attempts to suppress the IMF debt sustainability analysis were a shameful attempt to mislead the people of Greece and of Europe as a whole and displayed the utter contempt of the unelected bureaucrats who now run the world for democracy and for the people they want to control.
It cannot be that after this mockery of democracy, these same people can just remain in their jobs, drawing their inflated salaries and roaming the world scoffing the finest foods, drinking the most expensive wines and being waited on hand and foot, all at our expense.
It’s time for Europe’s ‘inner party’ to show the same democratic spirit that Yanis Varoufakis has shown. And if that doesn’t happen, we European voters should ignore the Euronazi and USSA globalist propaganda and support parties pledged leave the European Union as quickly as they can.
That would prove once and for all that the EU is no more than a cheap facade, a thin veil behind which something pretty disgusting along the lines of what the likes of Hitler and Stalin had in mind for the world is hiding its true face.
Here is Yanis’ explanation behind his surprising resignation after the Greek referendum returned the vote he wanted:
The referendum of 5th July will stay in history as a unique moment when a small European nation rose up against debt-bondage. Like all struggles for democratic rights, so too this historic rejection of the Eurogroup’s 25th June ultimatum comes with a large price tag attached. It is, therefore, essential that the great capital bestowed upon our government by the splendid NO vote be invested immediately into a YES to a proper resolution to an agreement that involves debt restructuring, less austerity, redistribution in favour of the needy, and real reforms.
Soon after the announcement of the referendum results, I was made aware of a certain preference by some Eurogroup participants, and assorted partners’, for my
absence’ from its meetings; an idea that the Prime Minister judged to be potentially helpful to him in reaching an agreement. For this reason I am leaving the Ministry of Finance today. I consider it my duty to help Alexis Tsipras exploit, as he sees fit, the capital that the Greek people granted us through yesterday’s referendum. And I shall wear the creditors’ loathing with pride.
We of the Left know how to act collectively with no care for the privileges of office. I shall support fully Prime Minister Tsipras, the new Minister of Finance, and our government. The superhuman effort to honour the brave people of Greece, and the famous OXI (NO) that they granted to democrats the world over, is just beginning.
Minister No More! (Yanis Varoufakis)
