Yanis Varoufakis discussing Adults in the Room
Larry Summers asked Yanis Varoufakis, are you in the inside or the outside?
In other words, are you one of us?
Christine Lagarde, after hours of fighting with Yanis Varoufakis, relaxing afterwards, admitted, he was right, and what was was being done to Greece was wrong, but it had to be done to satisfy the political establishment.
In discussion with US Treasury, they admitted, what was being done by the EU to destroy Greece, they were not happy with, but Greece was within Germany’s sphere of influence and they could not interfere.
Yanis Varoufakis was then warned, be aware, in a week, a smear campaign will be launched against you by the EU.
One week later, that was what happened, a smear campaign was run. Lazy journalists, with ties to the Deep State, were briefed, they print their lies, and the rest of the media regurgitates. Lies become facts.
If Yanis Varoufakis attempts to correct the lies, it is then reported as Yanis Varoufakis denies he said. That was never said, not reported.
Until that is he was interviewed by the New York Times, and said it was all a pack of lies. Who should we believe, it is your word against theirs? Ah, yes, I recorded the meetings.
Not all journalists are of the calibre or integrity of Paul Mason.
Greece was neither here nor there. Greece had to be destroyed to serve as a warning to others.
We are seeing the same with Brexit. UK cannot be seen as being better off outside the EU. It must be punished to serve as a warning to others. That this will destroy Europe is seen as irrelevant.
Yanis Varoufakis set up The Untouchables, a secret task force to deal with Oligarchs and tax dodgers. They obtained records from the banks to show where the money was flowing, then compared with tax receipts. They then offered an amnesty, declare and we will tax you at 15%, we are letting you off lightly, fail to declare and we will bring criminal prosecutions, and by the way, we know who you are.
This programme, which would have brought in billions of euros, was scrapped by the Troika.
The Troika was supported by the Oligarchs, the Troika in turn supported the Oligarchs.
When Greece held its referendum, the media campaigned against No to the Troika. The media owned by the Oligarchs. The Greeks showed courage, they voted No, even though they knew there would be a price to pay. They were betrayed by Greek politicians.
A condition of the next bailout, was to scrap the programme to claw back the tax that had been dodged.
EU has led to a rise in Fascism and a move to far-right nationalism across Europe. So-called progressive politicians have failed to stand up to the EU, and in doing so have betrayed the people they claim to represent.
Know who is your enemy, the enemy within. In Labour, those who sabotage the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn.
In Brighton, it is insanity for Labour to oppose Caroline Lucas.
Everyone urged to join DiEM25 to form progressive alliances across Europe.
We have to transfer power back to nation states, back to town halls, back to people, at the same time, network and cooperate.
When Greece needed help and support, they were betrayed by politicians across Europe, politicians who pretend to be progressive.
When someone says they want to be a politician, want power, they are the people not to vote for.
