Work or Jail - Greece

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by CptDanjou, Feb 6, 2013.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A lot of the "workers" in Greece are still wishing to live in a fantasy world where they are able to avoid paying taxes, accept bribes and generally do very little and expect a lot in return for that. They should let the ****ing place tank, propping it up is simply delaying the inevitable and wasting vast amounts of money.

  2. But to do so would lead to a Grexit which would open the gates for others to foxtrot oscar....

    The Europhiles would rather spend every last taxpayers cent before that happened.

    Anyway they still have an army? They can fix bayonets and prod them back to work....
  3. I think you'll find that a significant percentage of Greeks are more likely to identify with Stalin's opponents. You know, the ones with the sexy, Hugo Boss-designed uniforms...:twisted:
  4. House again from our favorite fantasist you bringging any useful comments to the post or just trying out your new staff discounted crayons?

  5. The EU..euro and the Brave (New World (order))
    These people have had no wages for 6 Months.....I would be Pissed off and probably very militant too.

    Meanwhile in Brussels......a considerable number of the 50,000 EU civil servants are earning in excess of 16,000 Euros per Month before bonuses and extras.

    linky here:
    Report: EU civil servants make more than Merkel - The Local

    Meanwhile Merkel praises the Spain, Portugal and Italy for their continuing Austerity measures whilst whole families in Spain live off the 400 euro Pension of the Grandparents. The official number of unemployed is 19 million EU wide. Some sources say that the real figure is almost double that. That is a lot of pissed off people with time on their hands and little to lose. The words "Spark and Powder Keg" come to mind.
    I suspect that when the Spark happens there will be a huge amount of civil unrest in the coming years..thats why government are implementing Surveillance and control mechanisms, changing the Laws so that their Armies can be internally deployed and buying hardware such as weaponised drones.
  6. Dictatorial either way , Spain may well go the same way , scary really as we will all suffer it.

    They haven't fully got over the last innings. Very long memories in those parts:

    Greek Civil War
  8. .......With the Greek government invoking emergency powers yet again, to order the seamen back to work following on from the public transport workers, or face jail, it seems they continue to edge ever closer to the scenario of the Colonels or the Nazis !, lol, marching them to work again at the point of a gun like forced labour from the concentration camp.
  9. Well look on the bright side they dont like paying taxes so if it all goes Pete Tong they wont be having a mass exodus to the UK!
  10. Your posting on the wrong thread if you`re talking about the Greek tragedy of a ConDem`nd cabinet minister. As a Greek economist ex-wife divorcee, maybe they should send her home, because it looks like she has all the necessary talent & experience to sort this lot out.
