Vi trøster ambassadøren

Filed under: Buy Danish/daenisch kaufen, Demokrati, EUSSR, Hellas, Penge — Skjoldungen @ 23:42

Grækerne ved godt at ved folkeafstemninger gælder et “Nej” kun indtil den næste. Et “Ja” er derimod for evigt.

Jydepotten er forfærdet: “Papandreou beder det græske folk godkende EU’s redningspakke, der vil betyde flere økonomiske stramninger. – Det er risikabelt at bede grækerne tage stilling til EU’s redningspakke ved en folkeafstemning. Det siger Danmarks ambassadør i Grækenland, Tom Nørring. – Det er meget risikabelt, og nogle kommentatorer spekulerer i, at det er Papandreous alternativ til at udskrive valg. Men det er spekulationer. Det hele er meget nyt, siger han..

Folkeafstemning kommer formentlig først til januar, så der er lidt tid at løbe på. – Regeringen har gennemført en stribe spareforslag, men er blevet mødt med protester og kritik. Der er ikke folkelig opbakning til redningspakken, siger han. Hvad der vil ske, hvis grækerne siger nej, er et godt og åbent spørgsmål, mener ambassadøren”.

Kender ambassadører ikke begrebet omkamp…?  Har de aldrig hørt om Anders Fup…?

  1. Hæ hæ, ja det er desværre ikke engang en overdrivelse. Men vi kan da håbe, at selv Grækenlands politikere vil indse, at det vil være fornuftigere for Grækenland at forlade den synkende skude. Hvis hele Europa så følger eksemplet, kan vi blive endeligt fri for de totalitære eurokrater. …Jeg drømmer vist. Det er også blevet sent.

  2. Det giver reelt ingen mening at stemme om EUSSRs “redningspakke”.

    Det som giver mening er at afholde en folkeafstemning om Grækenland fortsat skal være en del af Euroen. Alle økonomer (som ikke tænker i politiske baner) ved, at vejen ud af krisen til dels er at landet erklærer sig selv konkurs og lader en masse banker m.m gå konkurs. Og herefte lave en kæmpe devaluering af egen valuta, så erhvervslivet kan forbedre sin internationale konkurrenceevne. Det er præcis hvad fx Argentina har gjort med succes.

  3. En græker skriver:

    The recent announcement of a referendum for Greeks to vote on whether to accept the terms of the latest bail out money in my opinion will potentially have serious short term ramifications on the markets and long term ones on the survival of the Euro.

    The seemingly sudden and unexpected decision to hold a referendum is in itself bizarre, and must in part be a political one taken by Papandreou in an attempt to stay in power. The previous austerity measures leading to riots and civil disobedience were very unpopular among the ordinary citizens and would ultimately have guaranteed that Papandreou would never return to power. Therefore “his” decision to hold a referendum now is an attempt to redeem himself in the eyes of the population, but in my view was ill-advised. He is so unpopular that nothing he does now will save his political career.

    I said “his” decision but it is inconceivable that this decision would have been taken by the Greek PM, without prior knowledge, discussions and indeed agreement of his Euro partners

    The ramifications of the decision are serious and in my opinion will if (as is expected) the answer is “NO”, send the markets into short term turmoil. In particular, the only realistic consequence would be that the bail out money is refused, Greece openly defaults in a disorderly manner, and quite possibly forced to leave the Euro. Perhaps this was indeed seen (by Germany and France) as the only way forward. After all, it gives the right signals to other Euro countries in a similar position that Europe (Germany and France) is quite capable of being of being tough in its insistence on the right austerity measures being implemented.

    Lets face it, Greece could not have been given a blank cheque, when everyone knew that it could never repay. Equally, to have simply refused to bail Greece out would have been seen by the markets as Euro weakness and would have sent the wrong signals out to other member states. Much better, to pass the buck,….or should I say “the Euro” to the Greeks, to let it appear that they themselves decided their own fate.

    In my opinion, there is no way that the Greeks will accept the terms of the latest bail out money…and that can only mean one thing…DEFAULT. I dread to think of the consequences in Greece. The Government has no money to pay its workers…..riots and civil chaos that could spread to other countries..

    In my further opinion, this will not (as is hoped) be a solution to the Euro crisis. On the contrary, I believe it really marks the beginning of the end of the Euro. In fact I would be very surprised if it even exists in its present form this time next year.

  4. At den danske ambassadør nu fraråder at spørge det græske folk viser,
    hvor verdensfjernt hele overklassesystemet tænker.
    Han har, som os andre lært, at demokrati udspringer af folket og ikke af
    en række selvbestaltede bureaukrater.
    Han er komplet uduelig til at være ambassadør for Danmark.
