this graph has lots of hard core data...UK's deficit is bigger than Greece's
επιτέλους! η κυβέρνηση κατάλαβε ότι πρέπει να αρχίσει να μιλά την γλώσσα των αριθμών και της Ιστορικής Αλήθειας!

"What we have faced up until now and, I think, what we are going to face in the next days to come, are very mild. This is shown also by polls, which give overwhelming support to this government," he said.
Mr Pangalos also made a strident attack on the calibre of the EU's current political leaders, saying those of the 1980s - such as Margaret Thatcher, Helmut Kohl and Francois Mitterrand - would never have permitted the current economic crisis.

"This is another level of leadership which we don't have today. The quality of leadership today in the union is very, very poor indeed," he said.
Although the EU has offered moral support to Greece, it has been far from enthusiastic, not least because of the country's dubious accounting practices, our correspondent says.
But Mr Pangalos accused Italy of being more inaccurate with its financial statistics, and said Germany should not criticise Athens because it had wrecked the Greek economy and slaughtered thousands during the Nazi occupation.
"They took away the gold that was in the Bank of Greece, they took away Greek money, and they never gave it back. This is an issue that has to be faced sometime in the future," he added.
More than 300,000 Greek civilians died from starvation during World War II, while thousands more were killed in reprisals. The economy was crippled, as foreign trade was suspended, agricultural output ground to a halt, and the treasury had to lend Germany money.
Germany paid Greece about 115m Deutschemarks in 1960 to compensate victims of Nazi persecution, but it has refused more recent demands for further funds. However, some Greeks say the compensation did not cover civilian victims of reprisals and the loan.
σε μια εβδομάδα που μας γάμησε ο άγγλος διαιτητής στο Καραϊσκάκη,
σε μια εβδομάδα που μια γερμανική φυλλάδα ονόματι focus κάνει γλυπτική του
σε μια εβδομάδα που έχουν έρθει στην Αθήνα τα ευρωκοράκια...
ο Πάγκαλος κτύπησε!
και τι κτύπημα!
