Editorial: Pointless blustering… | tovima.gr

The decision to quickly withdraw the bill on its ‘parallel program’ highlights, once again, the contradictory behavior of the government and a complete lack in understanding the circumstances within which it is forced to operate. On the one hand it will fast-track all creditor demands to collect the 1 billion euro tranche and on the other it will resort to tampering in an effort to convince that it can enforce its own program…

Only as it turns out a few hours later, the blustering is meaningless, since the government is quick to give in and admit that it cannot legislate unless it estimates the cost first. It insists upon a failed and inefficient tactic that we have paid dearly in recent months and a pointless bill that addresses minor arrangements and favors.

Unfortunately for the government its favored media spins do not constitute a reform policy or a parallel program. Just like the tactic of constantly blaming the opposition for its own shortcomings, because they raised valid points.

The division within the government and SYRIZA, namely to implement the bailout while claiming to not agree with and painfully vote for it, will lead nowhere. If they do not fully assume responsibility, take ownership of the measures and the cost of implementing them, then they will constantly be forced to show off their so-called might and disorderly retreats with a far higher cost.

There is only one option for the government and the country. To quickly finish with the commitments we have assumed, in hopes of bringing some stability to the economy and society. That is the only way that the people may begin to hope that tomorrow will be better than today…
