Mind-bog­gling in­ep­ti­tude

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The left­ist-led coali­tion gov­ern­ment’s ab­ject in­ep­ti­tude in man­ag­ing the refugee and mi­grant cri­sis is so mind-bog­gling it’s al­most im­pres­sive. Time and again we have heard prom­ises and as­sur­ances that all kinds of steps would be taken to re­lieve some of the pres­sure on the is­lands and to of­fer safe and clean ac­com­mo­da­tion, which have all led up to the com­plete fi­asco we are see­ing to­day and lam­en­ta­ble in­ci­dents on the is­lands of the Aegean. Does the re­spon­si­bil­ity for all this ul­ti­mately rest on any one per­son’s shoul­ders at the end of the day? Does the min­is­ter in charge of mi­gra­tion pol­icy un­der­stand the dif­fer­ence be­tween man­ag­ing a non­govern­men­tal or­ga­ni­za­tion and the task at hand for the gov­ern­ment? The answers are clear and are also the cause of the dan­ger­ous chaos we are see­ing to­day. Some­thing needs to be done, and soon.
