People Power in the Birthplace of Democracy
Syrzia is playing hardball with its EU and IMF bankers and, to show them how futile their push back is, the Greek government is threatening to either call another election or put the issue to a referendum. Why? Because barely a month in power, Syrzia has rocketed in Greek polls by 12%. One month. Twelve per cent. Those are people who aren't looking for their government to make many concessions to Brussels. They're standing with their government and Syrzia is standing with them.
The Spanish people go to the polls this year and, at the moment, Podemos has a healthy lead in the polls. A lot of Spaniards are looking to Syrzia for inspiration and hope. The ECB and IMF really need to break Syrzia before Spain also falls to a defiant leftist government which could trigger a domino effect.
