One would expect that after voting in the new super bailout, the ministers and officers of the Tsipras government would limit the tall tales they tell the people, about so-called never-ending struggles and cheap populist promises. It seems though that lying is second nature. One such example is Tsipras’ government partner on raising the VAT on the islands.
Obviously Kammenos thought he was speaking to idiots who cannot realize what is going on around them, when he dubbed the VAT hike criminal and against the constitution. He also considered resigning but could not endure the shock his power vacuum would cause, so he carried on bombarding us with his heroin battles…
This is not of course the first time that the Prime Minister’s esteemed partner is provoking public sentiment with his interventions. Nor is it the last since remaining in power is paramount. It is however an indicative example of the political and moral depression from the Independent Greeks leaders, just a few days after his proud ‘yes’ to everything in Parliament, for him to pretend to be sensitive and defend society that is paying for the damages caused by him and the government of which he is a member.
If Kammenos had the basic decency he would have submitted his resignation, since contributing to such a criminal law which conflicts with the constitution. That is another story though, just like the Prime Minister’s silence and tolerance to his partner’s accusations is a sample of political immorality.
PS: Unfortunately it is not just Kammenos in this government who is making provocative statements. What can one say about the authentic leftist who was chosen to be a part of the government’s strategic planning group, who advised cancer patients to use cannabis oil as the most effective treatment?
