    The only socialist alternative was for Greece to leave the EU and that could have led to another military right wing coup. You cannot pretend to be socialist when capitalist international bankers run your country…The EU have humiliated Greece and the Greeks have accepted this.
    More reason to vote NO in the British EU referendum. The longer we remain in this corrupt mafia organisation the more they will dictate.

      … and outside of the EU the demands of the capitalist world economy will disappear?

      • Glasgow Working Class said,

        It will not Jim. But should the bankers and beaurocrats prevail and bring austerity to balance their books. That means we as humans have no way to progress without the bankers. Is that it Jim our destiny.

    “leading UK journalist Paul Mason” Lol. Paul Mason is a marxist who recently predicted that capitalism had finished.

    • Glasgow Working Class said,

      Capitalism is never finished even socialists are capitalists. The Greek people should never have had to suffer this austerity. I do wonder how much money was moved out of Greece by the establishment and moreso money loaned by the EU. The Greek establishment should be hunted like terrorists are.

    Barry Finger of New Politics wrote an excellent piece several months ago about what Syriza could do in government:
