We find it difficult to think of a similar European example, where the Corporate Banking Representative, former Chairman of the Board of the National Bank of Greece & president of the “Hellenic Bank Association” (bankers union..) is appointed finance minister. Especially at this juncture in time it is obvious that bankers (and their civil servants) should be held responsible for the situation. It’s crystal clear that the 2008 debt crisis spread to all countries due to the rescue of the banks and the golden boys.
The government (along with the opposition, but that’s a different story) is being held accountable. Our article about the elections reflects our views openly.
We can’t be any clearer; you do not represent us, you represent the 1%.
We will resist. We‘ll put an end to your guild, or corporate practices.
