The Greeks Need A Clarity Act

In 1995 Quebec held a referendum to secede from Canada. The Federal government passed the Clarity Act, requiring that the question be clearly articulated.

It seems as though the Greeks need Ex PM Chretien (note: he’s probably available for consulting, but not sure how good his Greek might be).

Here is the referendum question.

So, in less than a week, the cities of Greece will empty as all registered voters leave for their hometowns. They will assemble in the plazas and townsquares and coffee shops and they will decide yes or no as to whether or not to accept a plan, or a proposal, in its two parts, being one unified whole.

Presumably if ‘yes’, that means do whatever the Troika say and continue down the current path.

If, however, ‘no’, what does that mean? No to the proposal and to the Euro? No to the proposal and to Europe? Or just no to the proposal but yes to Europe, but maybe no the Euro if the finances aren’t in order.

The fog of referendums is upon us.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
