Col­li­sion course

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

It can­not be dis­puted that Greece is drag­ging its feet. Ev­ery­one knows it, ev­ery­one feels it, even those who refuse to ad­mit it for purely po­lit­i­cal rea­sons. Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras and his cab­i­net be­long to the lat­ter cat­e­gory, even though the facts, the fig­ures and, gen­er­ally speak­ing, the coun­try’s over­all im­age con­stantly re­fute their claims to the op­po­site. Fresh dis­tor­tions are con­stantly added to the al­ready ex­ist­ing ones, which are end­less, ide­o­log­i­cal opin­ions pre­vail, re­forms across all sec­tors are un­der­mined and de­layed, ar­ti­fi­cial ex­pec­ta­tions are never ful­filled and any kind of mo­men­tum that might still ex­ist in Greece is sim­ply lost. In other words, we are on a very dan­ger­ous course and the amount of time the coun­try has re­main­ing to take the helm and steer it­self clear of the rocks is painfully lit­tle.
