Dan­ger­ous ex­per­i­ments

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

De­mands by cer­tain par­ties for the Greek op­po­si­tion to back the new mea­sures re­quired by cred­i­tors are ir­re­spon­si­ble and dan­ger­ous. For starters, the gov­ern­ing party was never asked to do such a thing when it was in the op­po­si­tion. Se­condly, many of the mea­sures be­ing im­ple­mented or still on the ta­ble rep­re­sent a blight on the pri­vate sec­tor. SYRIZA doesn’t care about that and some of the in­sti­tu­tions don’t ei­ther as long as the num­bers add up at the end of the day. The op­po­si­tion stepped up in 2015 when the coun­try was on the brink of Grexit by back­ing mea­sures it op­posed. It would be lu­di­crous to ex­pect it to do so again. Last but not least, this de­mand is like pu­n­ish­ing po­lit­i­cal forces that have time and again proved their com­mit­ment to the Euro­pean Union. There must be some limit to the cyn­i­cism of those who see Greece as an ex­per­i­ment in progress.
