Last night, while hundreds of thousands took to the Athens streets in protest, the Greek parliament approved yet another austerity bill. No one has any illusions that these measures or the loan extensions granted the EU will grant on the back of them will have any positive effect on the Greek economy. Not the politicans voting these measures through, the Eurocrats insisting on them, the bankers who gain from them, but above all not the people who will suffer for them. Its not so much that the mask has slipped but just that they can’t be bothered hiding the grotesque any longer.
