The situation in Greece today could be described as the perfect storm. At the moment, there is an eerie calm and dread.

The general mainstream push is to discredit Tsipras (he's young, he's crass, he's… Continue reading Too close to call
Alexis Tsipras is just 37 year's old and suddenly his appealing face is all over the international press.

It's new elections for Greece. If this poll is any indication it marks the beginning of a new era in Greek politics.

(don’t forget to look at polls going up and down)
Ολοκληρώθηκαν οι συζητήσεις με τον Πρόεδρο της Δημοκρατίας. Πλήρες αδιέξοδο. Πλήρης ασυνεννοησία. Απογοητευτική συνάντηση χωρίς ξεκάθαρη στρατηγική για τη διάσωση της χώρας. Ούτε το ποιός μπορεί να κυβερνήσει με ποιόν μετεκλογικά δεν μπορεί να έχει ακόμα αποφασισθεί. Η κριτική ίσως και να μην έχει νόημα. Το ζήτημα είναι να δούμε πράγματι το τι θέλουμε την… Continue reading Ο κύβος ερρίφθη. The die is cast … May the force be with you!

The search is over. All attempts to form a government will not bear fruit. Parties and their leaders are just going through the motions until they pick the next date for the national election. It will be up to the people to cut the gordian knot and decide which path to take. The dilemma of… Continue reading Greek Elections: The Do or Die Dilemma
Greece is fast running out of options. The parties have thus far failed to find a way to form a coalition government mainly because the second largest party SYRIZA does not want any part of it.The polls show that if elections were held today, SYRIZA would be the party of choice for the electorate. So… Continue reading Who will govern if they can’t form a government in June? Tell politicians to “Sign for Greece!”
Nothing like a poll to help sabotage any chance of forming some kind of coalition government. May 6 marks Greece's Waterloo. The large parties collapsed and are near extinction, and the populist left came out second in strength.
