Time and tide wait for no man

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Come next Sun­day, all of Europe will be thrust into a swirl of elec­toral de­vel­op­ments whose re­sults and con­se­quences are far from pre­dictable. The trends that have emerged over the past few years and are tak­ing prece­dence over others are more than ap­par­ent. They also sig­nal a new pe­riod of in­tro­spec­tion in in­di­vid­ual coun­tries and re­ac­tion against the so-called European spirit of sol­i­dar­ity. Given that the writ­ing is on the wall, the Greek gov­ern­ment has a duty to put aside all the big talk (that con­ceals its ten­dency to bury its head in the sand) and wrap up any loose ends it has with its in­ter­na­tional cred­i­tors as soon as pos­si­ble. As ter­ri­ble as it sounds, we can more or less de­pend on ev­ery new day be­ing worse than the last, as pres­sure and se­ri­ous ob­sta­cles con­tinue to mount. In short, time and tide wait for no man, so there’s no room for de­lays.
