Eroding Democracy

In "The Right Side Newsletter" Bengt Saelensminde wrote:

'Much of the Greek public see this [EU policy] as economic enslavement. They’re out on the streets fighting for their freedom.

Meanwhile the Greek police union released a statement saying its members refused to “stand against our parents, our brothers, our children or any citizen who protests”. The police union knows that more and more austerity is self-defeating. They agree with the protesters, not the politicians!

The union threatened to arrest members of the [EU reform] troika - for “blackmail, covertly abolishing or eroding democracy and national sovereignty”.'

Serious stuff, indeed! Perhaps all will change after the elections in April.
