Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras has been crow­ing over re­cent data show­ing a small drop in un­em­ploy­ment, pre­sent­ing it as one of his govern­ment’s finest ac­com­plish­ments. What he for­gets to men­tion, how­ever, is that the ma­jor­ity of new po­si­tions be­ing cre­ated are only for part-time em­ploy­ment. Once again we are see­ing the left­ist leader adopt po­si­tions and opin­ions that he crit­i­cized ve­he­mently when his party was still in the op­po­si­tion. This cer­tainly sug­gests that he is start­ing to adapt to re­al­ity but in no way mit­i­gates the da­m­age he wreaked on the coun­try in the mean­time.
