Who Represents the Political Center of Greece?
leaves me wondering whether there was ever really a political centre to
hold. Some will rightly blame an overdose of austerity for killing off
the traditional parties that claimed to represent this middle. But the
truth is that the parties of the supposed centre never represented an
economically sane, export oriented pro-business or liberal outlook. They
were patronage networks that flirted with opposing ideologies while
following the same statist, inward looking model."
