When the go­ing’s not good

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

PASOK mem­bers of Par­lia­ment are in a very sticky sit­u­a­tion right now, be­cause they know that if they ap­prove the new mem­o­ran­dum they will be com­mit­ting po­lit­i­cal sui­cide while if they don’t they will be lead­ing the coun­try to ruin. This coun­try’s politi­cians seem to be fine only when the go­ing is good. Now that se­ri­ous com­mit­ments to painful changes are called for, their lives have be­come ex­po­nen­tially more dif­fi­cult. Those who can’t take the heat had best get out of the kitchen. Those who choose to stay, mean­while, should re­al­ize that they only have one choice when it comes to how they choose to con­tinue: along the long hard path that has al­ready be­ing trod­den by thou­sands of Greeks who feel the threat of bank­ruptcy, un­em­ploy­ment and fu­ture un­cer­tainty loom­ing over them ev­ery day.
