Challenging the big lie………...

I'm sure that many people are quite disparaging about what is happening in Greece but at least the Greeks are beginning to question the dominant view which is that the way out of the financial crisis is austerity. It will be interesting to see how Alexis Tsipras and his colleagues in Syriza handle the European Financial Establishment because they present a real challenge to the accepted wisdom of austerity whose purpose is, in fact, to protect capital and the interests of capital.

And now the Spaniards are beginning to show signs of dissent. Where will it end? Certainly not in the UK because in blight we are way too smug and complacent. When does Big Brother start?
