The Telegraph: "Ο Έλληνας πρωθυπουργός ανακοίνωσε δημοψήφισμα για την συμφωνία της ΕΕ" + Σχολιασμός αναγνωστών

Greece's Prime Minister George Papandreou

Ο Γιώργος Παπανδρέου ανακοίνωσε ότι θα υπάρξει δημοψήφισμα για την έγκριση της συμφωνίας της ΕΕ η οποία επιβάλλει μείωση 50% στους πιστωτές της (Photo: REUTERS/Francois)

«Το σχέδιο των πρωτοβουλιών απαιτεί ψήφο εμπιστοσύνης», είπε ο Παπανδρέου στους Σοσιαλιστές βουλευτές του κόμματός του στο κοινοβούλιο, λίγα λεπτά αφότου είχε επίσης ανακοινώσει τη διενέργεια δημοψηφίσματος για την σύμβαση της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης.

«Η εντολή του ελληνικού λαού θα μας δεσμεύσει», είπε.

«Θέλει να υιοθετήσει τη νέα συμφωνία, ή να την απορρίψει; Αν ο ελληνικός λαός δεν το θέλει, δεν θα πρέπει να εγκριθεί», δήλωσε ο πρωθυπουργός μετά από διαμαρτυρίες που πραγματοποιήθηκαν σε όλη τη χώρα την περασμένη εβδομάδα κατά της πολιτικής λιτότητας της κυβέρνησής του.
Ο Παπανδρέου, ο οποίος έχει 153 βουλευτές στο 300 εδρών κοινοβούλιο, βρίσκεται αντιμέτωπος με την αύξηση των διαφωνιών στο εσωτερικό του κόμματός του για την σκλήρυνση της πολιτικής λιτότητας που επιβάλλεται από την ΕΕ και το Διεθνές Νομισματικό Ταμείο, πράγμα  που έχει προκαλέσει γενικές απεργίες και εκτεταμένεςδιαμαρτυρίες, πολλές από αυτές βίαιες.

Ο θυμός του λαού φανερώθηκε και πάλι σε όλη τη χώρα την Παρασκευή, όπου δεν πραγματοποιήθηκαν οι παρελάσεις για την Αντίσταση στη ναζιστική Γερμανία και τη φασιστική Ιταλία, κατά τον Β΄ΠΠ.

«The plan of initiatives calls for a confidence vote,» Papandreou told his Socialist party lawmakers in parliament, moments after he had also announced a referendum would also be held on the EU deal.

«The command of the Greek people will bind us,» he said.

«Do they want to adopt the new deal, or reject it? If the Greek people do not want it, it will not be adopted,» the prime minister said after protests were held around the country last week against his government’s austerity policies.

Papandreou, who has 153 deputies in the 300-seat parliament, has faced increasing dissent within his own party over the hardening austerity policy monitored by the EU and the International Monetary Fund that has sparked general strikes and widespread protests, many of them violent.

Public anger showed itself again around the country on Friday as parades were held to mark Greece’s wartime resistance to Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy.

Anyone want to open a book on how many referendi Greece will hold?

George seems pretty chummy with the EU up to now (he favours the bailouts) so its not entirely implausible the first/second/third «No» votes will be found to have technical faults…

Good on you Greece, how would the 300 Spartans at Thermopylae have dealt with the EU bully boys?
18:15 The Telegraph reports George Papandreou’s announcement of a referendum on the latest EU bailout – a referendum that threatens Greek departure from the EU/default, a second/more serious banking crisis and possible collapse of the Eurozone, sparking a world-wide recession/depression

20:00 BBC News 24 – «voted the most popular news channel» – ‘Today’s main headlines’ makes absolutely NO mention of the Greek Referendum. Top of the bill is the Dean of St Paul’s resigning and the failure of adopion services in the UK.  There is no story in the News/Business sections of Text and the «breaking news» red text flashing across the bottom of the screen just keeps banging on about Abdul Al-Raheem Al-Qeeb being elected interim prime minister of Libya.

Hmmm… which of these events is likely to have more direct impact on the lives of British people, and therefore warrants more coverage?  And which one would a state-propaganda machine be more interested in covering up…

How any self-respecting journalist can bear to work for the BBC I don’t know.

G Pap just bottled it.

The Germans look a bit daft now. How much more crap are they prepared to take?

If I was a German taxpayer I’d feel a bit hacked off at seeing my taxes going to support non-taxpayers in Greece waving placards plastered with Nazi symbolism.

Hopefully German taxpayers will be pee’d off enough to stop paying and we can watch the EU unfold…

The EU cannot afford to have Greece – nor (they wrongly believe) do they want to have the vanity of the semi-precious «Unity of the EU Union» flawed.

However, if they keep Greece imprisoned IN the EU with the Euro then civil war in Greece is guaranteed and underwritten by the French – who began this problem by fudging the figures to get Greece into the EU in the first place.

The permanent presence of the «troika» is a major irritant to the Greeks. A gestapo office in downtown Athens – measuring up assets for «defraying the Greek debt» – is an open invitation to some young Spiros with a bomb.

The Greeks with lots of propaganda from Papandreou and co – actually believe they are best in the EU.

If they pull out and especially out of the euro – they can still sell their olive oil to happier customers in the EU, at a price which benefits Greece, builds its growth prospects. Then there are all those beautiful Greek holidays. The only Germans will be good ones with euros to spend.

Good luck Greece – you’ve had a bad deal first from sweet mouthed French liars and now hard mouthed Germans.

A referendum is democratic and will horrify the dictatorship of Europe.
This is akin to the fall of the wall and marks the end of the euro and the biggest banking fraud in the history of the world.
I agree devon france- it is the first crack in the Wall. But careful, the EU will determine the Referendum questions.
I vote we hold a demonstration outside the Greek embassy in London to congratulate the Greek people for getting a referendum on THEIR EU issue – something the Mother of Parliaments denied us.
The Greeks are playing their «Get out of Jail» card, probably under instructions from Berlin. No more passing Go and no more monopoly  money. At least they’ll have their country back to do as they wish.

Well you don’t have to be Einstein to figure out what they are going to vote for, NO. They are not prepared to have a debt relief in exchange for 20 years of austerity and being dictated by the EU. The writing was on the wall when the opposition said they where against the deal and as like all Politians the prime minister will know he will loose the next election so is trying to is offering this fig leaf to the people, if he thinks they will vote yes he really is living in another planet.

steveandbetty

Its like only being prepared to go to hopital after being injured in a road accident only if the paramedics are beautiful…….
………the Greeks are hurting but it is not going to get better and they are now intent on pulling all those around down…..be afraid……very afraid!…..the lift is on its way down and are the wires coming away?
It is the right decision – because the latest Greek «bailout» only reduces their debt by 28% – and this still means they will blow up their economy trying to pay debt and interest.

If Greece stops paying  debt and interest – it might be able to balance its books and stay in the euro.

MrDT

Looks George has just strapped a pair on lets hope Merkal does not rip them off and make him eat them.
Do the Germans know about this, has anyone told the Chinese, LOL would love to be a fly on the wall, looks like the ride is starting to hot up

VentilatorBlues

Be careful for what you wish when it comes to asking the public’s opinion.

As Henry Ford said:If I’d asked customers what they wanted, they would have said «a faster horse»

Pesmo

Sounds like a recipe for trouble.

andp

Or a bargaining ploy to get a better deal from a desperate EU.
First??  I really really hope they vote to reject this and become bankrupt and all the worlds banks fail!  Come on bring it on, we don’t want banks ruling the world!!!
