A Campaign Spot For Alexis Tsipras!

This would make for a good campaign spot for Alexis Tsipras!


  1. Good in deed! But after years of cut income, this one works too:

    Stratoulis (front line SYRIZA MP): "We have already written the law text to bring back minimum wages to 751 euros".

    It will work wonders! As well as the:

    Stathakis: "No tax for incomes up to 12.000 euros. Raises to pensions up to 800-900 euros".

    On the other hand, Samaras is trying to best that with a meager "i won't cut further the pensions".

    It's a no brainer, don't you think?

  2. Primary surplus in late November 2014: 3,7 beur (2% of GDP).,7-%CE%B4%CE%B9%CF%83-%CE%B5%CF%85%CF%81%CF%8E-%CE%AE-2-%CF%84%CE%BF%CF%85-%CE%B1%CE%B5%CF%80-%CF%84%CE%BF-%CF%80%CF%81%CF%89%CF%84%CE%BF%CE%B3%CE%B5%CE%BD%CE%AD%CF%82-%CF%80%CE%BB%CE%B5%CF%8C%CE%BD%CE%B1%CF%83%CE%BC%CE%B1-%CF%83%CF%84%CE%BF-11%CE%BC%CE%B7%CE%BD%CE%BF-%CF%84%CE%BF%CF%85-2014.html

    And Samaras isn't even trying to show it off. He knows that he can't beat Tsipras' rivers of money with something that brings no money to voters...

  3. Klaus, I must admit that I do lack some intuition or intelligence :( to interpret that sketch.

    I does depict a bright future with two working pencils, with one only having an attached rubber gum to erase false decisions - Could you _please_ explain me who has what role in that oracle??

    1. When a good pencil breaks it is tragic. Unless you recognize the opportunity that you can now work with two good pencils going forward. Tsipras will make two good pencils out of one broken one.

  4. Mr. Kastner, Alexis Tsipras outdid even your intellectual proposal! He will help AEK FC to have a football stadium! Look at the genious of the man! Trying to take the votes of fanatical football fans!

    "The SYRIZA goverment right after the elections will take the political initiative to make sit on the same table, the mayor, the local authorities and the AEK authorities, to have a prosperous dialogue and cooperation climate.

    AEK FC is a football team founded by refugees and of low income level fans, it doesn't belong to the businessman that happens each time to be president.
    And we have the obligation to reply to the will of AEK's people for a football stadium in its natural place (New Philadelphia)".

    If Tsipras finds also a way to please fans of Olympiakos, Panathinaikos and PAOK, SYRIZA will win the elections with absolute majority! Samaras is in deep sleep! He 'd never think of building a stadium to gather votes!

  5. Tsipras motto: "The future has begun".

    Copied from Simitis (PASOK) 2000:

    Voters rarely remember such things.

  6. Another brilliant idea of Tsipras. In Chania Crete, one of his candidates is... Andreas Papandreou! Crete is known to be one of the most, if not the most loyal area to Andreas Papandreou. It was so loyal to PASOK, that it has been dubbed "the green island". And not for its forests... So Tsipras is putting on his electoral list, an Andreas Papandreou for the nostalgic Cretans to bite on.

  7. As a sidenote, Dimioyrgia Xana will not partecipate in these elections. Lack of money and allies... The former ally, DRASI, jumped into the River...

    1. Have you ever read this piece from June 2012?

    2. Ι agree with your enthusiasm and advice to Tsipras, but the problem is like saying to Die Linke to follow CSU's political program... Not that DX is CSU, but to show the distance from Tsipras. Still, the fate of DX is not yet decided, there will be a party convention soon to discuss further route... It's very difficult for small parties with virtually no state financing (80.000 euros is all of it), despite volunteers, to break through such polarization, when since the start of crisis, half vote for Tsipras and the other half against Tsipras. It would be easier if the political scene was more normal, with lower stakes.

      If you are interested and don't mind google translation, here is the message of DX's president about the reasons:

      Unfortunately, when you don't have powerful shadow financers and media support and have to take votes from an extremely crowded scene and your ally dumps you 1 month before the elections...
