And no, this is not my favourite politician, but here he does have some very good points.

  1. Politicians like Tsipras have a short-term mindset – they want to ease the pain as quickly as possible. Similarly , the old farts who voted “nai” in the referendum. For them ( with one foot in the grave ) perhaps it’s understandable , but it’s still a selfish viewpoint.

    The next three years may go more smoothly within the eurozone than outside it , but what of the next 5 , 10 , or 20 years ? What about all of the young people leaving school to start their careers during that time , stuck in a dysfunctional monetary union designed to enrich the already-rich at the expense of all the rest ? Isn’t that what the election of Syriza was supposed to prevent ? And what of the damage Syriza will cause to the movement all across Europe ?

    Farage is right. The Greek parliament still has time to do the right thing. If they could think a bit beyond the immediate future , they’d be more likely to cast a vote that they’ll be proud of , instead of one they’ll live to regret.
