Alexis Tsipras’ Open Letter To Germany: What You Were Never Told About Greece

Alexis Tsipras’ Open Letter To Germany: What You Were Never Told About Greece (ZeroHedge, Jan 29, 2015):

Most of you, dear [German] readers, will have formed a preconception of what this article is about before you actually read it. I am imploring you not to succumb to such preconceptions.

PRO-BAILOUT Party Wins Greek Election

Pro-austerity party wins Greek election (RT, June 17, Edited June 18, 2012):

The pro-bailout New Democracy party has come out on top in Greece’s parliamentary elections, having gained 29.6 per cent of the votes. With nearly all the votes counted, the anti-austerity leftist Syriza party is trailing on 26.9 per cent.

The results have kept fears of Greece’s imminent exit from the eurozone at bay for the time being. “The Greek people today voted for Greece to remain on its European path and in the eurozone,” New Democracy leader Antonis Samaras said after his party had won, AP reports. He added that voters had chosen “policies that will bring jobs, growth, justice and security.”

The pro-bailout Socialist PASOK party came third with 12.3 per cent of the votes. The far-right Golden Dawn part won 6.9 per cent.
