Δεν έκλεψα-Δεν τους Ψήφισα-Δεν πληρώνω


Η παρακάτω ανάλυση από το μπλογκ του TeacherDude με καλύπτει απόλυτα και νομίζω πως συνοψίζει τους λόγους για τους οποίους οι Έλληνες βγήκαν πάλι στους δρόμους.

The ruling PASOK party headed by Giorgos Papandreou has done little to clean up its own house when it comes to graft and influence peddling and despite court cases in Germany and the UK, the scandals its senior members were involved in during their last term in power have yet to result in any criminal charges being brought against those involved here. On the other hand the newly elected leader of the defeated New Democracy, Antonis Samaras heads a party whose members presided other one of the worst periods of corruption in Greek history yet few have even been fired let alone been the subject of a court trial.

What people are enraged about is that such incompetence and corruption is likely to be repeated since no one is in a position to put a stop to the previous abuses of power. The judiciary is little more than an extension of whoever is in power and can be ignored at will while the media is supine in the face of the temptation of rewards from those in power in the form of state jobs, contracts and advertising revenue. Sometimes it seems that the news here is a choice between a Hellenic version of Fox News or Pravda, with very little objective reporting.
