With his new “mandate” from the people, Alexis Tsipras is set to pull the trigger on still more austerity measures on behalf of the Troika.
Promising to reform the entire government (read as “privatize” and “decimate”) the Greek PM is looking to appease the leaders of Europe’s financial institutions and finally be able to do what his sheep-dipped candidacy was made for all along.
The historical revisionists say he’s finally ready to stop fighting the masters of the universe “for now” and give them what they want. Of course, that’s what he’s done all along. Even when given a real mandate to reject the IMF deal in the referendum a couple months back, Tsipras and his spin doctors claimed that was a mandate to accept them and even more austerity for the people. His duplicity has been stunning from the beginning, but then again, he didn’t have much time to betray the people. The banksters needed a nation to loot and Greece was next on the list.
